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
by Jean Toomer.
In Jean Toomer's poem "Storm Ending," a speaker describes a storm taking place above them through figurative language.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Fate & Free Will and Human vs. Nature as they relate to the text.
We are trying to answer these big questions
"Who's in control: humanity or nature?" and "Can we control our fate?"
Ways to support your child:
Ask your child about this poem at home:

What did you learn about Human vs. Nature?
