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 Man of the Crowd" by Edgar Allan Poe.
Unlike Edgar Allan Poe’s well-known suspenseful works, “The Man of the Crowd” is a mysterious and philosophical short story that explores unanswered questions as the narrator follows a man around the streets of London.
