Common Core Video Series

This video series (found at this website: National PTA)  was developed through a partnership with the Hunt Institute as part of National PTA’s ongoing effort to provide accurate information about the Common Core State Standards and to assist PTA membership with developing grassroots advocacy skills.

The Common Core State Standard videos were designed to educate parents on the Common Core State Standards and empower them to support the transition at school and at home. The videos highlight three key principles:

  • We need clear, consistent and rigorous standards across the country to ensure all students—regardless of their zip code—graduate with the higher order thinking skills needed for college and careers. 
  • The standards reflect the relevant knowledge and skills that young people need to succeed in college and to build and maintain an American workforce that can compete in the global economy.
  • National PTA’s goal is for parents to be knowledgeable about the standards and new assessments and to support them every step of the way as states transition to the standards.
The Grassroots Advocacy videos were designed as companion videos for our Grassroots Advocacy training. The videos provide a brief overview of the steps PTAs should take in order to effectively advocate for any issue that arises in their school community, state or Federal issues. The videos highlight:
  • Campaign Strategy
  • Coalition Building
  • Meetings with Decision Makers
  • Working with Media/Social Media
