write a brief response describing these forms of nonfiction:
- A speech
- A legal document (Remember the Emancipation Proclamation and the Declaration of Independence)
- A personal narrative
For each, consider these questions. What are the defining aspects of the form? What stylistic devices might the writer use to convey their purpose?
Then, speculate on the role of fiction in studying history. How can you use fiction to convey similar historical events and perspectives to the narratives and nonfiction?
