The Neglect of Playtime: A Review of the Literature.
Towers, Jenny
Early Child Development and Care, v131 p31-43 Apr 1997
This review of school playtime literature finds that school play has gained serious recognition only in the last decade; that recognition generally falls into two camps, the romantic view (emphasizing what children learn and enjoy at playtime) and the problematic view (emphasizing issues such as bullying, disruptive behavior, and gender inequalities); and that children's perceptions of play need investigation.
