Written for people with some knowledge of TA, this book contains a myriad of ideas for teaching TA to others in ways that make it memorable and accessible. Julie Hay sets out the key principles of developmental TA. At the same time she illustrates how to expalin these concepts in a style that captures the fun and simplicity of early TA writing.
Julie tells us that Donkeys are friendly and hardworking but don't always understand that there are good pastures for them across the bridge. She goes on to provide numerous examples of donkey bridges. These are the stories, gimmicks, alliteration, and so on that trainers can use to help the donkey to happily cross the bridge into the vale of learning. She relates these donkey bridges to a range of TA frameworks, moving from individual to relationship to groups and finally to organisations.
