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.

In the informational text “How Salt Shook an Empire,” Sara Wilson Etienne discusses Mahatma Gandhi’s march to protest the British government’s tax on salt.
