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 "Ain't I a Woman? " by Sojourner Truth.

In Sojourner Truth’s speech “Ain’t I a Woman?” Truth discusses women’s rights at the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention in 1851.

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?"
