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?"
