Dream It Playbook Facilitator-Guide for teachers and parents
Important note: You don’t need the facilitator’s guide. The book is already designed to be self-explanatory for children to complete independently. However, if you are a teacher, therapist, workshop leader or parent that wants to play along this guide has some helpful hints.
Update: Version 6. Now including a section for health care professionals with suggested activities for challenges like anxiety and depression. Facilitating the Dream It! Playbook is easy because the Playbook is designed to be self-explanatory. That being said, this guide gives advice on how to implement the Dream It! Playbook as a curriculum in your classroom, after-school program, workshop, or individually, such as tutoring, homeschooling or therapeutic activities. We offer solutions to break the book into different periods of time that can be delivered across a few days, weeks, semester, or school year. We also summarize the concepts page by page. And, we give lots of suggestions for working with children, getting unstuck and maximizing dream potential. This guide is based on our research project with the University of Cincinnati in YMCA After School Programs and Cincinnati Public Schools using the Dream It! Playbook, which is scientifically proven to increase optimistic thinking by as much as 22%.

  • And, finally, stay tuned for an introduction to steps 2 and 3, mapping and playing, of our formula for turning dreams into a reality.

Games and Activities
