Beat the Odds® Manual + Activities on Film
Written by Beat the Odds® (BTO) program developers, Ping Ho, MA, MPH, Giselle Friedman, LCSW, and Mike DeMenno, the manual contains the scripted curriculum and booster/demo session. Full of pointers, explanations of the purposes of each activity, and guidelines for managing activities, behavior, and logistics, the manual contains all you need to learn the BTO program at home.
See BTO in action! Beat the Odds® Activities on Film is a series of film clips showing BTO co-developer, Giselle Friedman, LCSW, delivering all 26 activities in the program to a class of fourth graders. Each activity can be viewed as a stand-alone segment for reference while using the manual. This 90-minute series was created during the making of American Rhythms, a 2008 documentary film on BTO, following completion of the original study of its effectiveness.
