SirThe importance of Imagination within the Special Education Maggie KirtonThis Volume includes 3 sections of learning:1) Series of very short stories: Sir, an imaginary, simple and ancient man, lives beneath the only tree in a large field - his only companions are the cows and sheep. The village children often visit him, bringing him their troubles, hopes and dreams.2) Letters to Sir: Sir receives letters from, and subsequently replies to, troubled children from all over the world. 3) My Dream of Istas: (a short story) Sir has an adventurous dream about the Village children being held captive by Istas, the King of the Mountain.This educational children's book is not illustrated to assist in encouraging a vivid, literary imagination and, of course, to maintain focus on the lessons being taught. The purpose of this series is as simple as Sir: to encourage children to 'talk' about their problems and to learn that they are not alone not matter how big or small their problem may seem to be - to a child, if an issue takes up space in their minds, takes them away from creativity or cocoons them within their own skin, that issue is not a small one . . .Standard teaching curriculums work for children in the vast majority of classrooms, but what happens to those children that learn in the classroom labelled: Special Education? In this classroom, teachers use wonderful and creative ways to incorporate standard teaching techniques with the special needs of each individual child within the room.Sir is written as a long-term, group-learning, lesson plan which takes in multiple children within the classroom, all learning the same things at the same time, and yet leaving room for each individual child to use their own imagination and creativity on their own terms … thereby increasing the likelihood of successful learning in a calm, gentle, and creative learning environment. Lessons include: organized group discussions, artwork, creative thinking, social skills, tolerance, self-respect, respecting the views of others, the differences between right and wrong, and the list goes on and on – all based on the common theme: using imagination to learn within the Special Education more
