Understanding and Building upon Children's Perceptions of Play Activities in Early Childhood Programs.
Ceglowski, Deborah
Early Childhood Education Journal, v25 n2 p107-12 Win 1997
Reviews research on differences between children's and teachers' view of play and presents a continuum of activities from work to play. Found that teachers believed that some academic work presented in game form was play, whereas children focused on voluntary choice and self-direction as key elements in play. Suggests ways in which teachers might respect and foster children's play. (KB)
