Ethan the Brave

Curriculum: Diversity Awareness, Social Emotional Learning, STEM, Visual Arts

This presentation begins with a puppet show using life-sized puppets to engage students and introduce the topic of disabilities. Students are shown a short film called Ethan the Brave, produced by local artists, many of whom have disabilities. This film celebrates differences and encourages viewers to find commonalities within everyone. After watching the film, the presenters and students engage in a conversation and activities around the question, "What can you do to make a new student at your school feel welcome?" As a follow up, teachers are given information for an art project to have students write or create an art piece about something they learned from the presentation.
