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 "Our Deportment, or the Manners, Conduct, and Dress of Refined Society" by John H. Young.

In “Our Deportment, or the Manners, Conduct, and Dress of Refined Society,” John H. Young explains the rules of etiquette during the early 19th century. In this excerpt, Young explains the proper etiquette for wives and husbands.

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

"How do we define the roles of men and women?" and "Why do people resist change?"
