A note from Joan Schaeffer:

We have appreciated your many requests for characters and are very pleased to announce our Common Core Role Models for the 2017-18 school year: LAURA INGALLS WILDER: Writer of the Frontier, BEN FRANKLIN: Inventor and Founding Father, and HELEN KELLER: Champion of the Disabled. These programs will directly complement your K-8 Common Core Curricula in ELA, history, social studies, STEM, character education, bullying prevention and more.

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 needed 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 this year.
