The in-classroom programs are based on the NYS Social Studies Learning Standards and Themes. Most of the programs have a focus New York State history, as well, as a few programs on United States history. All the in-classroom programs engage the students on the specific topic.

Some of the programs have been converted to student readers that contain more in-depth historical information. Throughout each student reader, there are questions to answer and exercises to assist with reading and comprehension. Please see website for a listing of the student readers.

Circus is an activity that requires the same dedication, discipline and hard work of any sport, only it stresses collaboration rather than competition. Kids set and achieve goals together, learning cooperation and camaraderie.

Students transfer their newfound excitement for circus directly into theme related art, music, science, history, math and language studies.

The world is full of narratives, in stories, in songs, in how we experience our everyday lives. Alicia Quintano began telling her own stories when she was in 5th grade to her little sister in the middle of the night. Since then she has written stories and songs for performance and taught writing workshops across the country at diverse venues including colleges and universities; libraries; parks; schools; and arts festivals. Her goal as a writing teacher is to encourage students to take joy in tapping their own creativity and to share their stories with confidence when reading aloud.
