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 "Trail into Darkness" by Brad Robie.

In Brad Robie's short story "Trail into Darkness," a boy gets lost while snowshoeing with his family. 

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Fear & Paranoia, Honor & Courage, and Human vs. Nature as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How does fear drive action?", "Who's in control: humanity or nature?", and "What does it mean to be brave?"
