2018

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 "African American Suffragists " by Margaret Gushue.

In the informational text “African American Women Suffragists,” Margaret Gushue discusses women’s suffrage and African American women’s contributions to the movement.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Men & Women, Prejudice & Discrimination, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How do we define the roles of men and women?", "What are the effects of prejudice?", and "How do people create change?"
