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 "George W. Harkins to the American People" by George W. Harkins.

In an open letter to the American people, Choctaw chief George W. Harkins expresses his opinion about the Indian removals.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Justice, Freedom & Equality, and Prejudice & Discrimination as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?", "What are the effects of prejudice?", and "Which is more important: freedom or security?"
