It’s here! The extended DVD for HSLDA’s movie on the Common Core, Building the Machine, is out at last!
Back in April of last year, I sent out a charge to parents and educators worldwide to educate themselves about the Common Core. We want YOU to decide for yourselves where you stand on this important issue.
MY CHARGE TO YOU!
Now that our Building the Machine documentary is out, my charge is still just as urgent as it was back in April! We need you, parents, educators, students, social media advocates, and education enthusiasts to share about and get others involved in learning more about the Common Core!
I invite you, regardless of side, to watch the film and explore the issues for yourself. Let’s spark discussion on the Common Core! Most importantly, let’s work to spread the word about the Common Core.
And guess what? There are multiple ways to do this:
– LIKE the Building the Machine Facebook page
– FOLLOW Building the Machine on Twitter
– FOLLOW HSLDA’s Common Core board on Pinterest
– FORWARD this film to your friends
– HOST a screening of Building the Machine
– DOWNLOAD the group discussion guide for the Film
– SIGN UP for Common Core news & alerts
PLUS, are you a blogger? Want to receive two copies of the Building the Machine DVD for free? Email me at Charity@hslda.org if you’re interested!
ABOUT THE MOVIE
Building the Machine is a gripping half-hour documentary that tells the story about the Common Core, one of the biggest national reforms to be adopted behind closed doors. It introduces the public to the Common Core States Standards Initiative (CCSSI) and its effects on our children’s education. This DVD set (the original documentary, bonus parent interviews, and six supplementary episodes) tells the Common Core’s story in the words of leading educational experts, including members of the Common Core Validation Committee, along with parents, teachers, and a social worker.
To spread the word further about the Common Core, we’re giving away a copy of the Building the Machine DVD.
