Encouraging Symbolic Play in Young Children: A Guide for Developing Creative and Imaginative Experiences.
Doescher, Susan M.; And Others
This guide was designed to expand teachers' vision of symbolic play and to assist teachers in providing an appropriate play environment. The guide maintains that teachers of young children should consider symbolic play an essential element in the total learning environment. It presents ways for teachers to: (1) set up physical areas; (2) acquire and use various resources and props; (3) define and expand their role to suit their students' temperament; (4) adapt symbolic play to accommodate the individual differences among their students; (5) deal with aggressive play; and (6) develop techniques and strategies to use when encouraging children to play. Accompanying the text is a list of play scenarios (such as an airport, camping, or doctor's office), appropriate props and materials, and vocabulary terms. (MDM)
