Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "A Participant’s First-Hand Account of the Boston Tea Party" by George Hewes.

In “A Participant’s First-Hand Account of the Boston Tea Party,” George Hewes explains what led to the famous event, and a first-hand account of what happened.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Justice, Freedom & Equality, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How do people create change?", "What makes America unique?", and "Which is more important: freedom or security?"
