Playing Is My Job.
Jones, Elizabeth
Principal, v76 n5 p18-19 May 1997
Suggests becoming a master player is a critical learning task for young children. "Push-down" programs (direct teaching, work sheets, and drill), designed to give children a head start in school, fail to consider the active-learning mode in which young children are most competent. Notes that a developmentally appropriate classroom for 3- to 5-year olds has an integrated play curriculum. (MLH)
