Evidence-based practice:

“We had dramatic results in the first year of the Better Together program at Leeds Elementary School. The school documented that there was an 80% reduction in unwanted behaviors in the second grade and a 35% reduction in the fifth grade, the two grade levels which received focus.”

These practices – how to talk it out and how to have conversations that change exclusion, mistreatment and bias – are presented for teachers and parents. Learn also how songs set new norms and create a positive culture. The text also includes lyrics and activities for all forty time-tested songs.

200 page book and double CD set of 40 songs.
