Just Playing?: The Role and Status of Play in Early Childhood Education - Janet R. Moyles

Oxford University Press, 1991, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

From the cover: “Just Playing explores why we should encourage, promote, value and initiate play in our classrooms, and why teachers should be part of it. Janet Moyles draws on research findings from several countries which provide further evidence for establishing the value of play. She focuses on children between 4 and 8, examining the principles of play in early childhood education, and indicates how these principles can be put into practice. She provides a full justification for including play in the early year’s curriculum and encourages teachers, through examples of children at play, to review their own thinking on the issues in the light of core curriculum pressures.”
