2016

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 "Causes of the American Civil War" by Mike Kubic.

In “Causes of the American Civil War,” the informational text explores the causes of the American Civil War and the growing hostility between the Northern abolitionists and Southern slaveholders.

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

"How has America changed over time?", "How are we changed by war?", and "Why do people resist change?"
