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 "Remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy on Young People and International Service" by John F. Kennedy.

In “Remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy on Young People and International Service,” Kennedy addresses students of the University of Michigan on how they can contribute to their country.

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

"How has America changed over time?", "How do people create change?", and "How can we achieve peace?"
