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 "Voice of Witness: A Sudanese Refugee’s Oral History" by Juliet Linderman for Voice of Witness.

 In the interview “Voice of Witness: A Sudanese Refugee’s Oral History,” Juliet Linderman interviews a Sudanese refugee about his experience relocating to America.

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

"How does a person overcome adversity?", "How are we changed by war?", and "What is the importance of community?"
