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 "Trujillo & the Mirabal Sisters" by Mike Kubic.

In "Trujillo & the Mirabal Sisters," Mike Kubic explores Dominican Republic dictator Rafael Trujillo's rule from 1930 to 1961, before the oppressed people of his nation would no longer stand for his regime.

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

"How do people create change?" and "How does power corrupt?"
