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 Price of Greed: Hannibal's Betrayal by Carthage" by Joshua J. Mark.

In “The Price of Greed: Hannibal’s Betrayal by Carthage,” the informational text proposes that the Carthaginian commander and military genius Hannibal could have led his city to victory in the Second Punic War, had it not been for Carthage’s betrayal.

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

"How are we changed by war?" and "What does it mean to be brave?"
