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 "Jupiter and His Mighty Company End the Golden Age" by James Baldwin.

In "Jupiter and His Mighty Company End the Golden Age," Baldwin retells the classic myth of the Titans, focusing on the battle between Jupiter and Saturn that brings about the end of the Golden Age.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Power & Greed, Revenge & Betrayal, and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"What drives a person to betray?", "How are we changed by war?", and "How does power corrupt?"
