EDUC 574 Seminar in Play, Development, and Young Children (3 credits)
Focuses on the rich, varied, and complex role of play in the development and learning of young children. Students examine the evolution of play theory as well as current knowledge related to play and the curriculum, factors that influence play, the role of the teacher in facilitating play, and teachers as advocates for play in school and child care settings. Student research is the primary vehicle for increasing understanding of additional play-related issues. Students are expected to discuss and critique current research in the field and to share their findings with the class.
