Problem Solving with Young Children Using Persona Dolls
Pierce, Jan; Johnson, Cheryl Lynn
Young Children, v65 n6 p106-108 Nov 2010
Early childhood educators frequently look for new ways to help children build social and emotional skills. Teachers want to use effective tools and strategies whether they are redirecting aggressive behavior or encouraging self-esteem and friendship. Persona dolls are one approach to supporting children's social-emotional development. Persona dolls are creative, interactive tools that allow children to productively express their emotions and solve the problems that come up in everyday life. This article presents an interview with Cheryl Johnson, an early childhood instructor at Washington State University in Vancouver, about her research on this approach. (Contains 4 resources.)
