WWC Summary of Evidence for this Intervention

Positive Action

Positive Action, a K–12 program, aims to promote character development, academic achievement, and social-emotional skills, and to reduce disruptive and problem behavior. The program is based on the philosophy that you feel good about yourself when you think and do positive actions, and there is always a positive way to do everything. All lessons are scripted and use classroom discussion, role-play, games, songs, and activity sheets or text booklets. Optional components include site-wide climate development; drug education for grade 5 and middle school; conflict resolution; counselor, parent, and family classes; and community/coalition components.
