Engaging Students in Health Literacy Through Fiction Novels
Personal identification with characters from a story impacted thinking and attitudes of subjects. Therefore, using narratives such as fiction novels can provide a richer and more authentic and impactful learning experience, compared to solely providing facts or short scenarios. There are a variety of ways to access and use novels to increase the depth of learning in most, if not all, content areas within secondary health education.
