Recommended Trade Books for Adult Literacy Programs

World War II Teaching Ideas

OLRC Reading Group
September, 1999

More than 20 books in the Recommended Trade Books database (; Publications) are related in some way to World War II. Because GED materials typically deal with this important time in our history in a brief or cursory way, teachers may want to use some of these trade books (all available at public libraries) to help learners explore and learn with more depth.

The matrix (see chart linked below) provides some information about these WW II books. More information may be found on the WWW database, including specific teaching ideas for individual titles. More general teaching suggestions follow for using many of the books simultaneously.
