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 Life of a U.S. Industrial Worker" by BirdBrain History.

In "The Life of a U.S. Industrial Worker," the text walks the reader through a typical day in the life of a U.S. industrial worker and the poor, unsafe conditions they faced.

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

"How has America changed over time?" and "What are the costs and benefits of technology?"
