Constraints of Pretend Play: Explicit and Implicit Rules.
Curran, Joanne M.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v14 n1 p47-55 Fall-Win 1999
Describes the rule structure within which 3- to 5-year-olds operate as they develop social pretend skills. Identifies implicit and explicit rules supported with narrative excerpts. Explicit rules include having a leader who suggests the plot, asking to play, taking a role in the pretend sequence, and playing fairly. Implicit rules include maintaining the fantasy/reality distinction. (Author/KB)
