Resources

If you have purchased a copy or if you have attended a Dragonfly Workshop you can download the Dragonfly Curriculum Guide and the accompanying files. All files are password protected.

You will need to email me (ALTHOMPS@UMN.EDU) to get the new password for the curriculum guide, the previous password still works for the other files. (Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature shows the interior page with the original password so I needed to make a new one.)
