Arlene Enriches Curriculum at Kizirian Elementary

Posted on: April 30, 2013

Kizirian Elementary School in Providence, RI has found Arlene On the Scene to be a great teaching tool in many areas. Bonus: it’s a fun read!

After purchasing a copy for all of the third graders, Kizirian Elementary dove right in. Using our free Teacher’s Guide and graphic organizers, students learned about disability and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, as well as broader topics such as the power of empathy and the beauty in embracing differences. Kids created their own campaign signs and even made their own Plumpy the Pumpkin!

They also used worksheets from the Teacher’s Guide to explore their own character and that of their peers. They practiced avoiding judgments based on outside appearances and using their empathy skills to support one another.

Finally, for Character Day, students dressed up like their favorite characters from Arlene On the Scene and Arlene, the Rebel Queen!
