Autumn Sutton, 5th Grade A.A. Cole Elementary
“I have found that these stories are really the essential missing piece to creating the learning environment and the motivation that is missing in today’s society. I had no behavior referrals this year because we were able to reference and use the themes of the stories and characters to deal with any issues that arose. By using them to build this environment, the academic and social development went way beyond my expectations and allowed all my learners to flourish!”
Harvard’s Dr. Richard Weissbourd endorses “Change the Story – A Game to Alter Reality”
“Ralph Singh has advanced a vital goal. He’s figured out an engaging way for young people to grapple with crucial issues of injustice. “Change the Story, A Game to Alter Reality” enables young people to examine many of the most pressing challenges of our times–including poverty, bullying, environmental degradation, and intolerance. And it gives young people the space to think about the challenges of change and to brainstorm actionable solutions.”
Dr. David Streight, Executive Director, Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education
“Over the course of the decade I have known Ralph Singh, his work as an educator has focused on changing the world by transforming the inner core of young people through the magic of stories. In his latest, perhaps most masterful endeavor— Change the Story: A Game to Alter Reality—Ralph urges middle and high school students to learn, to live, and to transform their world by seeking solutions to five enduring social problems through the collaborative magic of three powerful forces: the magic of foundational stories, the power of community service, and the beautiful (also well-documented) practice of students working with collaborative goal structures.”
