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 "Letter from Frederick Douglass to Harriet Tubman" by Frederick Douglass.

In this “Letter from Frederick Douglass to Harriet Tubman,” Douglass praises Tubman for her work in the abolitionist movement as a biography about her life is being prepared.

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

"How do people create change?", "What is good and how do we know?", and "What makes a hero?"
