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 Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell.

In “The Most Dangerous Game,” a big game hunter falls off his yacht and is rescued by a mysterious general who claims to hunt only the most dangerous game.

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

"How does fear drive action?", "How are we changed by war?", and "Why do people do bad things?"
