Library     Into the Rapids      Parent Guide

by Bradford H. Robie

2016

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 "Into the Rapids " by Bradford H. Robie.

In Bradford H. Robie’s “Into the Rapids,” a boy falls into the river during a rafting trip.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Fate & Free Will, Honor & Courage, and Man vs. Nature as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Who's in control: man or nature?", "What does it mean to be brave?", and "Can we control our fate?"
