Sample text

Try to let the breath deepen…. Breathe deeply down into your chest…. As you relax and let 40 SCRIPTED FANTASY IN THE CLASSROOM go…. Enjoy the feeling of relaxation as it flows all over your body. Eyes open or closed? We have twice referred to the question of whether the eyes should be open or closed during the fantasy. Some students find classrooms very threatening places and seem frightened to close their eyes as a result. There are others for whom closing the eyes signals a loss of control and therefore becomes an anxietyprovoking experience.

During a dialogue between teacher and student, information and statements of feeling begin to flow in the opposite direction—that is, from student to teacher. The skill of the teacher is to encourage the student to elaborate on her initial statements without judging or misrepresenting them. In this way the teacher becomes a mirror to the student, reflecting without distorting the images. This process promotes a deeper understanding of the self while the self that may be revealed meets with acceptance within the context that it is being explored, for example, a PSE lesson.

Privacy is a very important issue and one that should be considered carefully before beginning fantasy work with a group. Let us start with the less congenial situation: the standard classroom, with rows of desks and chairs, no carpets and no curtains. This is the situation most teachers have to put up with but TURNING FANTASY INTO REALITY 35 this need not be a barrier to successful work in this area. We know of one teacher who turned the desks to the wall and this strategy seemed to work very well.
