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 Real ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Soldier Saved 75 Souls Without Ever Carrying A Gun" by Elizabeth Blair.

In “The Real ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Soldier Saved 75 Souls Without Ever Carrying A Gun,” Elizabeth Blair discusses how Desmond Doss saved his fellow soldiers and why he refused to carry a weapon.

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 makes a hero?"
