Aimed at teachers and future teachers of children from birth through age eight, this book examines the positive effects of play on children's social/emotional, cognitive, and physical development. You will learn how to assess a child's learning through play, making play a more practicable teaching mechanism. You also will learn step-by-step recommendations for establishing a classroom that promotes play and how to develop play-based programs for children in specific age groups: infants and toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarten children, and primary-age children. Incorporating play into the program of special needs children is addressed in each age-specific section and in a separate chapter.

About the Author:

Dorothy Louise Justus Sluss is a Professor at James Madison University, where she teaches and studies play, creativity, and inquiry. She discovered the power of play for young children when she started her career in a kindergarten classroom. This experience inspired her to devote the rest of her life trying to understand how children think, learn, and play. To this end, she spent 15 years teaching in public schools and 15 years teaching in higher education. Professor Sluss has had a variety of experiences in inclusion, private and public preschool, and elementary education. Since entering higher education, she has been active in publishing, teaching, and providing professional development. She has also served as a national leader of several professional groups and has received numerous awards for research and scholarship.

Review:

:"This text is about purposeful play in the life of the young child and how to implement it, support it, and assess it. It is chocked full of theoretical supports that are best practices, and it shows how to implement them. Check it out. . . . You'll appreciate what you find inside, and our students need it."
