  Adaptation and Customization

Ripple Effects software programs can be used as curricula for systematic, positive behavioral training inmany of areas: social-emotional skill building, suspension alternatives, character education, violence prevention, substance abuse prevention, health education, diversity appreciation, pregnancy prevention, AIDS/HIV awareness, bullying, and more. The spine of each program is the seven key social-emotional skills identified through research as crucial to life success. Ripple Effects has broken these skills down into bite-size, learnable elements, and combined them in different ways to solve a range of behavioral, health, and social challenges.

Customizable to meet range of needs and constraints:

The programs have from 134 to 390+ individual topics, listed A-Z in a mock cell phone. Each topic takes from 15 to 20 minutes to cover, since there are nine different learning strategies used to address each one, including built-in, interactive assessment tools. The topics are like pieces of a Lego™ set: they can be combined in different ways to build a customized scope and sequence to meet individual needs and constraints. Some programs are a complete set, like Ripple Effects for Teens, with 390+ unique topics, or Ripple Effects for Kids, with 145 topics or Coach for Staff, with 134 topics.

You can combine them to fit a range of time constraints: one topic a day for fifteen minutes over six weeks, two per day for one hour a week over a semester, four in a single two hour session, etc. If you used Ripple Effects as a violence prevention curriculum, and covered every violence prevention topic in Ripple Effects for Teens, you'd have enough material for one lesson a week for the entire year, or about 20 contact hours. Or, you could customize a Ripple Effects violence prevention program targeted to local issues, and cover that in a shorter time. Tobacco cessation would take about 5 contact hours, distributed in whatever way works for a given learning setting.

In a program to reduce aggression at The School of the Future in New York, teachers directed students to cover 24 topics, twice a week, on their own time, over 12 weeks, and checked students progress reports to verify topic completion. The result- summer school referrals dropped almost in half!
