Introducing What Would YOU Do?

-- the interactive booklets that make learning about bullying, ATOD-prevention, and other serious topics fun!

Every What Would YOU Do? booklet contains an exciting short story with multiple opportunities for readers to decide what happens next!

At three key points in the story, readers are:

  • asked to make a decision for the main character
  • shown the consequences of their choices -- good and bad
  • given a chance to reconsider
  • guided toward a positive outcome!

Full of action and easy to read, What Would YOU Do? booklets present research-based information in a way that keeps readers engaged, learning, and interested in finding out what happens next!

Educators say,

"This is how information needs to be shared!"

Developed with input from educators and students, What Would YOU Do? booklets:

  • teach readers about peer pressure, and encourage them to think for themselves
  • let readers make mistakes, reflect on poor choices, and consider a different path
  • give readers ownership of the story's outcome, and help make research-based information stick!

What would YOU do if it happened to you?

A serious topic is introduced and explained in a way preteen readers can understand and relate to.

The story presents research-based information in a way that keeps readers engaged, learning, and interested in finding out what happens next!

Take-away tips help readers deal with the conflict being presented in real life!

An "advice column" answers readers' questions and reinforces content.

Cartoon-style illustrations that preteens in focus groups loved help grab readers' attention and keep them interested in reading.

Here's what preteens in focus groups had to say about our new What Would YOU Do? booklets:

"[It's] like you get to be the author!"

"Looks cool...makes me want to read more."

"If you write it, you actually have to think about it!"

Engrossing for students and affordable for you, these interactive booklets give readers an opportunity to explore serious topics -- and have fun while they learn!
