Great Special Ed Resource

5 Jun

I cam across this great special ed resource called Poisson Rouge. Red Fish Soup. Games for Children. You can read their manifesto here. It’s a great site, with an even greater pedagogy. The epitome of what special ed should be: exploration, play, success for learners, learning at your own pace, age appropriateness, level of ability appropriate as well. I wish that I had found this site while I was on professional experience, but it’s great to have in my toolbelt now, and also just to be inspired by their pedagogy. To leave with a quiote from their manifesto, I will say, “A child instinctively knows if something is complicated or easy, but will will like engaging within their comfort zone to relax as well as venture outside for stimulation, at their own pace, in the order they choose and that suits them that day. Poisson Rouge does not direct, does not control”. A great constructivist and flexible approach to teaching and learning. Love it!
