This module focuses on the use of play as a natural and effective means for expanding the learning opportunities for young children in special preschool settings. It includes discussions of the different roles teachers assume as they incorporate play into their curriculum. The guide highlights instructional approaches which promote child learning, describes components of learning centers that capitalize on a child's inherent curiosity, and gives practical suggestions for material rotation and student evaluation. Appendices provide information on setting up learning centers and arranging the classroom, integrating Individualized Education Program goals, selecting books and tapes for preschool libraries and listening centers, creating simple writing center materials, and recording child observations.
