Based on the work of the Hillingdon Tuition Centre, this is a practical, innovative and useful resource for nine to 12 year olds whose behaviour is causing concern.
Using the theme of a young boy writing letters from a Pupil Referral Unit, each session includes:
o warm up activities
o reading the letter
o group discussion
o a plenary session.
By creating this fictional character, Daniel, typical difficulties can be addressed safely by the participants. The book follows a similar format to the authors' popular Escape from Exclusion (shortlisted for the TES/NASEN Book for Teaching and Learning Award).
