about

In light of recent standards-based and testing movements, the issue of play in childhood has taken on increased meaning for educational professionals and social scientists. This second edition ofPlay From Birth to Twelveoffers comprehensive coverage of what we now know about play, its guiding principles, its dynamics and importance in early learning. These up-to-date essays, written by some of the most distinguished experts in the field, help students explore:

  • all aspects of play, including new approaches not yet covered in the literature
  • how teachers in various classroom situations set up and guide play to facilitate learning
  • how play is affected by societal violence, media reportage, technological innovations and other contemporary issues
  • which areas of play have been studied adequately and which require further research.
Doris Frombergis Professor and Chairperson, Department of Curriculum and Teaching, Hofstra University.
