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.

The informational text “Martin Luther King, Jr.” explores the life of King and his contributions to fighting inequality through nonviolent means.

"What are the effects of prejudice?", "How does a person overcome adversity?", and "What makes a hero?"
