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 "Rosie the Riveter" by Barrett Smith.

In the informational text "Rosie the Riveter," Barrett Smith explores the WWII origins of Rosie and her impact on social movements.

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

"How do we define the roles of men and women?", "How do people create change?", and "How are we changed by war?"
