Logo - Globe and Kids.Historic Perspectives for Children.


For the past 32 years, Historical Perspectives for Children has presented school assembly programs on strong role models in history for students in grades K-8, whose stories specifically complement the Common Core curricula in STEM, character education, social studies, language arts, African-American history, women’s history, disability awareness, diversity, inclusion and more. Each role model is vividly brought to life from childhood through adulthood, showing children how they developed character qualities that were needed, such as resilience, leadership, empathy, curiosity, honesty, self-regulation and optimism, to achieve their dreams and goals.

These compelling, interactive, multi-media portrayals are accented with slides, sound effects, taped voiceover and costume changes to truly bring each character to life. At the end of the show, children will say to themselves, "Maybe I can do that someday!"

Due to an Alzheimer’s diagnosis within my family, which now requires continuous care, we are no longer able to offer in-person performances. HOWEVER, for the past two years, we have very successfully presented HELEN KELLER: Champion of the Disabled, MKL: A Leader in Conflict Resolution, CLARA BARTON: Teacher, Nurse and Founder of the American Red Cross, and WILMA RUDOLPH: Olympic Champion in a compelling, pre-recorded virtual format, which is perfect for any type of in-person or virtual learning environment.  Students and classrooms can view the production via a simple link and password whenever and wherever it is convenient for them throughout the school day on which they book.  Teachers can also start and stop the program whenever they wish for classroom discussion. 

All virtual programs are about 35 minutes in length followed by a pre-recorded question and answer period with the playwright, and teacher preparation materials are emailed one month in advance.

Please visit our SCHEDULE page for current remote offerings in your specific geographic area.

The cost is very affordable.  Please call us at 630-886-3256 or email us at hpcprograms@gmail.com for details.

We look forward to presenting one of our outstanding Common Core Role Models for your students this year!
