The Social Context of Games: Or When Is Play Not Play?
Polgar, Sylvia Knopp
Sociology of Education, 49, 4, 265-71, Oct 76
Compares the game playing behavior of sixth-grade boys in free play in school yards and in formal physical education periods. The author concludes that play in the peer group context develops an egalitarian and consensual model concerned with means and that play in the adult-structured context fosters an authoritarian model concerned with ends.
