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 "Titanic Officer Swears Wreck Due to Company's Neglect" by United Press Leased Wire.

A newspaper excerpt about the Titanic details some of the controversy surrounding why the ship sank and who was at fault.

"How do people face death?", "What can we learn from tragedy?", and "What does it mean to be brave?"
