by Marcelo Gleiser for NPR


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 Madness Of Humanity Part 3: Tribalism" by Marcelo Gleiser for NPR.

In “The Madness of Humanity Part 3: Tribalism,” Marcelo Gleiser discusses what role tribalism plays in our society today, and the different social interactions it promotes.

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

"Why do people follow the crowd?", "Why do people do bad things?", "How can we achieve peace?", and "How are communities formed?"
