Boosting Student Engagement and Motivation with WhyTry
WhyTry: a cornerstone of student engagement and motivation
Deep student engagement is key in education. WhyTry is here to help you teach essential resilience skills that students need for success in school and life.
Lessons That Connect
WhyTry transcends the conventional educational toolkit with lively, diversified lessons that speak to the myriad of personalities and learning styles within a classroom. Each component is designed with the goal of kindling intrinsic motivation and inviting students to be active contributors to their educational path.
We recognize that each educational environment is distinctive and filled with its own set of challenges and opportunities. Our adaptable and flexible program ensures it can be effectively integrated into various educational contexts, providing relevant and impactful lessons.
Building Resilience: The WhyTry Approach
WhyTry is about making resilience skills easy to understand and remember for students through fun activities, relatable stories, and engaging multimedia resources.
Visual metaphors in our program help explain big ideas in simple ways. Stories connect with students, showing real-life situations they can relate to. Music and videos in our lessons make learning enjoyable and memorable.
“When you can see the purpose of each WhyTry lesson and use the attention grabbers, music, and metaphors to reach the kids with targeted interventions, WhyTry can help you achieve your goals. We saw a significant decrease in the number of referrals.”
“I have to say, the hands-on activities were perfect in portraying the message, and we had so many great discussions as a result. In fact, we saw a measurable change with our group. Our students made much better decisions going forward.”
I’m a teacher at heart, and having WhyTry in my toolkit gives me the flexibility to introduce main parts of the program in my guidance classes, and then I can pull in more content as the kids progress through different grades. It works seamlessly for me.”
