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 World’s Largest Refugee Camp Looks Like A Slum/Star Wars Mashup" by NPR Staff.

In the interview “The World’s Largest Refugee Camp Looks Like A Slum/Star Wars Mashup,” Ari Shapiro talks to human rights worker and author Ben Rawlence about the experiences of Somali refugees in a camp in Kenya.

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

"What is fair?", "How are we changed by war?", and "How are communities formed?"
