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 Underground Railroad" by USHistory.org.

The informational text “The Underground Railroad” provides an overview of the actions of Harriet Tubman and other Underground Railroad conductors.

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

"How do people create change?", "What does it mean to be brave?", and "What makes a hero?"
