Dragonfly Games: Developing and Supporting Dyslexic Learners 7-14
Dragonfly Games are designed for use with small groups of dyslexic pupils. The practical and varied resources can also be used outside of the classrooom to encourage over-learning and revision of curriculum topics. Stimulating and fun to do, the games help pupils to: overcome specific barriers to learning through the use of experience, over-learning and discovery; master skills beyond those of literacy and numeracy development, including thinking skills, tactical strategies, sequential application and gamesmanship; and devise their own games, developing their ability to use varied methods of application useful for overcoming learning weaknesses within their own specific profile. As the games are heavily loaded with luck, the chance of success does not depend on the pupil's performance. This helps to encourage players to participate fully, in an environment that is pupil-friendly and very enjoyable.

When Children are Abused: An Educator's Guide to Intervention

Deleuze and Guattari, Politics and Education: For a People-Yet-to-Come
Deleuze & Guattari, Politics and Education mobilizes Deleuzian-Guattarian philosophy as a revolutionary alternative to the lingering forms of transcendence, identity politics, and nihilism endemic to Western thought. Operationalizing Deleuze and Guattari's challenge to contemporary philosophy, this book presents their view as a revolutionary alternative to the lingering forms of transcendence, identity politics, and nihilism endemic to the current state of Western formal education. This book offers an experimental approach to theorizing, creating an entirely new way for educational theorists to approach their work as the task of revolutionizing life itself. Examining new conceptual resources for grappling with and mapping a sustainable political alternative to the cliche's that saturate contemporary educational theory, this collection of essays works toward extracting a genuine image of education and learning that exists in sharp contrast to both the neo-liberal educational project and the critical pedagogical tradition.
