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 "The Harlem Renaissance" by Jessica McBirney.

In the informational text "The Harlem Renaissance," Jessica McBirney discusses how the movement developed and the effect it had on America.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America and Community as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?" and "How are communities formed?"

Ways to support your child:

  • Ask your child about this informational text at home:
    • What was "The Harlem Renaissance" about?
    • What did you learn about America?
    • What did you learn about Community?
  • Watch Harlem Renaissance at home with your child.
