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 Tempest 4.1.156-8" by Gary Soto.
Gary Soto begins this poem with a line from Shakespeare’s The Tempest to delve into the harsh reality of death and how it is dealt with.
As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Death as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :
"How do people face death?"
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this poem at home:
- What was "The Tempest 4.1.156-8" About
- What did you learn about?
- Watch "We are such stuff as dreams are made on" -The Tempest (Michael Hordern) at home with your child.
