“The WhyTry program was created to provide simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success. The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multi-sensory learning. The WhyTry curriculum utilizes a series of ten visual analogies that teach important life skills (e.g., decisions have consequences; dealing with with peer pressure; obeying laws and rules; plugging in to support systems). The visual analogies are reinforced through creative use of music, hands-on activities, and multimedia. Why Try curriculum engages all major learning styles (visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic).” –WhyTry.org/info
