This week in class, we’re reading “Conformity” by Charlotte Harrison.
The drive to conform to group norms is a powerful force in most people’s lives. This informational text about conformity helps explain why people tend to match their beliefs and behaviors to those around them.
As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Social Pressure as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :
“What are the effects of following the crowd?”
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this informational text at home:
- What was “Conformity” about?
- What did you learn about?
- Watch Scene from Dead Poet’s Society at home with your child.
