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 "What do you want (really, really want) out of your college education?" by Richard Gunderman.

In the informational text “What do you want (really, really want) out of your college education?” Richard Gunderman discusses what students can get from college that is more than just preparation for a high-paying career.
