In Search of Serious Play
Wallace, David
Teaching Artist Journal, v3 n4 p249-253 Feb 2005
All teaching artists have taken unexpected detours that lead to miracles. They have all created magical experiences in which people are too engaged to notice the incredible amount they are learning. As a TA, one searches for "serious play"--purposeful fun that stimulates exhilarating work and genuine learning. But how does it happen? How do TAs strategically incorporate it into their teaching? This article offers strategies and tactics for facilitating serious play. (Contains 3 endnotes.)
