Summary

This resource booklet focuses on the definitions, developmental stages, and the benefits of socio-dramatic play. The booklet deals with the players, shows how adults can support children's play, describes the play environment, and offers some suggestions for development of curriculum based on play. The booklet discusses children's approach to learning and play, as well as three play styles--explorers, spectators, and dramatists. It then examines the teacher's role in enhancing children's play and offers several suggestions on time allocation, group size, and environment. The booklet also discusses the role in children's play of four teaching styles--prestructuring, redirecting, non-intervening, and extending. The importance of appropriate physical environment and play materials is also examined. The booklet concludes with advice on implementing play programming. Contains 14 references. (TJQ)
