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 Rape of Nanking and a Forgotten Genocide" by Mike Kubic.

"The Rape of Nanking and a Forgotten Genocide" offers context for the historically tumultuous relationship between the nations of China and Japan, which has been characterized by substantial aggression and violence, particularly on the part of the Japanese.

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

"What are the effects of prejudice?" and "How are we changed by war?"
