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 "Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide" by General Assembly of the United Nations.

The “Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide” was adopted by the United Nations, legally defining the crime of genocide and defining the terms of its prevention and punishment for nations who chose to sign.

"How do people create change?" and "How can we achieve peace?"
