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 "Every Man a King" by Huey P. Long.

At the height of the Great Depression, Huey P. Long, a Louisiana senator, delivered this famous speech in which he denounced the rich and argued to "scale down the big fortunes."

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America and Justice, Freedom & Equality as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?" and "What is fair?"
