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 "Abolishing Slavery: The Efforts of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln" by Mike Kubic.
In “Abolishing Slavery: The Efforts of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln,” Mike Kubic discusses how two historic men worked to end slavery in the United States.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Justice, Freedom & Equality, Prejudice & Discrimination, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
"How has America changed over time?", "What is fair?", "What are the effects of prejudice?", and "How do people create change?"
