Some time ago, I agreed to work with an external organisation to develop and produce a Bird Therapy teaching resource. I had been working on it for a while and was struggling to find the time and the level of polish I felt it deserved; both of which, the organisation was set to assist me with. Unfortunately I felt the goalposts moving and as the ideas stretched further away from what I envisaged, I started to struggle. I also struggled with a new job role that was demanding and consuming and I knew it wasn’t the right time.
So, I took back ownership of it and plodded along, making it (literally) as bright and engaging as I aimed for it to be; whilst also taking my time to ensure that I’m properly happy with it. This afternoon, I finally finished putting it together and once I’ve proofread it and checked it for consistency – I’ll start sending it out to anyone who wants to use it. If you’re interested then please contact me here and I can then email it to you.
It’s suitable for key stages 3 and 4, as well as some adult groups too. The pack features 13 activities, which is one for each chapter of Bird Therapy. It’s core is a 40 page PDF document that contains: background, instructions for each activity and all corresponding resources mentioned, in the form of printable handouts, book extracts and worksheets. There is also an accompanying PowerPoint with some audio and video embedded into it.
Obviously I can’t share this as widely as I would’ve been able to in the past as I’m no longer on social media. Therefore, if you know anyone who you think might like to use it then please steer them to this post. Equally, I’d appreciate anyone who feels they could share this on their social media too, to help spread the word.
