A note from Joan Schaeffer:

We have appreciated your many requests for characters and are very pleased to announce our inspiring Illinois Common Core Role Models for the 2019-20 school year:  AMELIA EARHART: Pioneer in Aviation (October – May) and HARRIET TUBMAN: Conductor of the UGRR (January – March). These enthralling programs will directly complement your K-8 Common Core curricula in ELA, character education, STEM, women’s history, black history, social studies and more.  They will be available for the 2019-20 school year only.

In these entertaining, interactive, multimedia performances, each character is vividly brought to life from childhood through adulthood, so children see how they developed the character qualities that were needed, such as resilience, leadership,  empathy, curiosity, courage, self-regulation and optimism, to achieve their dreams and goals.

HPC's full roster of characters will help children more deeply understand the connection between the past and the present as they prepare to meet the challenges of the future. Yes, they can read about these inspiring figures, and we do strongly encourage students to go to their libraries to learn more. But if they intimately experience a character's full life, they will gain a far more personal and deeper insight. They will also never forget.

We look forward to inspiring your students with these extraordinary Common Core Role Models in history!
