The Power of Fantasy in Early Learning is a truly unique book, based around the case study of a class of children, their teacher and a stuffed bear suit. Jenny Tyrrell illustrates the possibilities that an inanimate object can offer the teaching and learning situation. Drawing on her extensive experiences, she shows how the bear became an integral part of the school. Theory and practice are combined to explore teaching issues in the early years including the influence of the bear on the whole school, imaginative development, motivation to read and write and the influence of learning goals in a child's school life in the early years. This is a truly original work which will give heart to teachers everywhere and provide plenty of fresh insight into the debate on the nature of learning.

One in four school students struggle to read. The Phonics Handbook has been written to give assistance to teachers in helping students with reading difficulties. Taking a phonological approach, the book is set out in the form of lesson plans designed to be used instantly, requiring no preparation. The book is based on the wisdom gained from working with hundreds of students who have attended the author’s after-school reading clinic. This is reflected in the practical approach to helping students of all ages including those with English as a second language and those with a range of difficulties including, special needs, motivational and attention problems. Phonics Handbook includes lesson plans for every phonics skill from the basic alphabet sounds through to blends, digraphs, syllable breaking and decoding Latin and Greek words. Each lesson is followed by a worksheet for students. Using this format, the book incorporates diagnostic assessment to measure what students need at the outset of teaching, as well as measuring whether the tutoring has been effective. Additional teaching strategies are given to reinforce spelling and assist reading comprehension. Strategies for ‘hard to teach’ students and information on reporting to parents are included, incorporating research on the best tutoring methods.
