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 "Loving Decision: 40 Years of Legal Interracial Unions" by NPR.org.

The informational text “Loving Decision: 40 Years of Legal Interracial Unions” discusses the court case that invalidated laws preventing interracial marriages, as well as the status of interracial relationships today.

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

"How are we changed by love?", "What are the effects of prejudice?", "How do people create change?", and "What makes you who you are?"
