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 "For King's Adviser, Fulfilling The Dream 'Cannot Wait'" by Michele Norris.

On August 28, 1963, approximately 250,000 people participated in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. It was at this event where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous, “I Have a Dream” speech. In this special series from NPR’s Morning Edition, reporter Michelle Norris looks back on this important moment in Civil Rights history.

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

"How has America changed over time?" and "How do people create change?"
