WhyTry Introduces Game Plan Journal
Inc. has introduced a new component to help implement
the WhyTry Program in classroom and group settings. The
WhyTry Game Plan Journal is a book of activities and personal
reflections for use by each youth going through the WhyTry
Program. It includes many new activities for each of the
WhyTry visual analogies, including art, music, and observation
The WhyTry Program started as a set of ten pictures teaching
social and emotional principles youth need to succeed in
school and life. Soon songs were added reinforce the principles.
Then physical activities were added, to address all of
the major learning styles: visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic.
Many teachers saw the WhyTry Program as an opportunity
for creative new assignments. Teachers would assign students
to paint a picture of what their future would be like when
they tore off their negative labels. Or they would have
students write a poem about climbing out of the crab pot.
The WhyTry Game Plan Journal is a next step that gives
educators more tools to reach youth. For each visual analogy,
there are several new activities which can be used in the
classroom, or as homework assignments. The Journal is something
tangible the youth can keep and refer back to as they need
to review important principles.
