A Look at a Comparative Study of the Socio-Dramatic Play Ability of High Socio-Economic Status Black Kindergarten Children and High Socio-Economic Status White Kindergarten Children Conducted by Vivian A. Anderson.
Farrar, Margaret M.
This paper presents a review of research studies and theories involving sociodramatic play and its effect on the learning power of middle class children. Discussion centers on definitions, criteria, and principles of play, and ways for teachers to identify and encourage sociodramatic play in the classroom. Play, and especially sociodramatic play, is presented as an essential part of a child's learning process and a medium through which a child can express and organize his feelings. (ED)
