Practical Tools for Student Engagement
WhyTry equips educators with multimedia toolkits featuring:
- Attention-getters, stories, and video media
- Engaging visual analogies
- Object lessons, group, and group movement activities
- Music resources to help in the classroom
These resources boost student engagement and help them to see the relevance of putting effort into their school work. WhyTry also helps to establish positive behaviors and support your MTSS framework.
