WOOP is a practical, accessible, evidencebased activity that helps students find and fulfill their wishes. In character development terms, WOOP builds self control.
WOOP is named for each step in the process: identifying your Wish, imagining the Outcome, anticipating the Obstacle, and developing a specific Plan.
More than 20 years of research shows that WOOP improves students’ effort, attendance, homework completion, and GPA.
