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 "Nearly 1 Million South Sudanese Refugees In Uganda" by NPR.

In the text “Nearly 1 Million South Sudanese Refugees In Uganda,” Scott Simon interviews Noah Gottschalk about the experiences of South Sudanese refugees at settlements in Uganda. 

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

"How do people create change?" and "How are we changed by war?"
