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 "Eve's Diary" by Mark Twain.
This short story by American author Mark Twain (1835-1910) is a parody of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Christian Old Testament. It is a spin-off of his other work "Extracts from Adam's Diary." In this piece Twain gives us the perspective of Eve--contrastingly self-assured and full of childlike wonder.
"How do we define the roles of men and women?" and "What can we learn from comedy?"
