by Mike Kubic


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 "Manifest Destiny" by Mike Kubic.

"How do people create change?", "What makes America unique?", and "Why do people do bad things?"
