  • “The changes I’ve see are that… I’ve been calmer and less rowdy and stopped arguing.” –Dante, 5th grader, Maryland
  • "Why Try has been an invaluable resource for my students for the last 4 years. The visual analogies paired with the music, videos, learning activities, and journals seem to impact and allow my students to really grasp the concepts. As a teacher for students with emotional disabilities for the last 21 years I searched for a program that would 'stick' with my students and allow them to implement the strategies. This is the program!" -Julie Pettibone, ED Teacher, MSD Southwest Allen County Schools, Indiana
  • “You teach the analogy and you see a light bulb: ‘Oh yeah, I get it!’ You get a lot of that. When you get to the crab pot a lot of light bulbs go on.” –Rey Sanchez, Health Teacher, Garr High School, California
