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 "Verses Written by a Young Lady, on Women Born to Be Controll'd!" by Anonymous.

Written anonymously (though by a female poet, if the title is true; women often signed writing as anonymous in order for it to be published), this poem laments the position of women as was then conceived natural: subservient to men.

As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Men & Women as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :

"How do we define the roles of men and women?"
