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 "On Reverencing the Husband" by Zhao Ban.

China's first female historian Zhao Ban instructs women on proper behavior toward their husbands.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Gender Roles and Justice, Freedom & Equality as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"What is fair?" and "How do we define the roles of men and women?"

Ways to support your child:

  • Ask your child about this philosophy article at home:
    • What was "On Reverencing the Husband" about?
    • What did you learn about Gender Roles?
    • What did you learn about Justice, Freedom & Equality?
  • Watch Prezi: Confucianism at home with your child.
