F.Y.I. For Your Imagination: Focused Imaging. Instructional Strategies Series No. 12.
The documents in this series provide educators in Saskatchewan with practical and relevant guides to teaching and learning as a means of expanding or refining teaching repertoires. This booklet explores focused imaging as a way to enhance student learning, describes the application of imagery to specific school curricula, and acts as a strategy teachers can use with students to help them learn more effectively and develop creativity by using their imaginations. The publication is organized into nine sections that provide explanation and exercises. The topics are: (1) a sample imaging experience; (2) What is focused imaging? (3) Why use focused imaging? (4) What does focused imaging look like? (5) What does focused imaging sound like; (6) preparing for focused imaging; (7) lesson planning; (8) teacher reflection; and (9) a focused imaging highlight sheet. Resource selections include general overviews of focused imaging, curriculum specific applications, script examples, background information, and starter ideas and inspiration. Appendices provide relaxation ideas, lesson plan samples, and a sample of script completion. (LL)
