This practical book offers unique, powerful ways to use play to investigate stories, big ideas, and events. It focuses on dramatic play as a natural response to learning. It argues that dramatic play is a dynamic process that involves planning, playing, and practice so that children become the story, live the life of characters or animals, bump up against issues, and can better appreciate the complexities of the human journey. Rooted in classroom experience, this valuable resource offers a variety of effective ways that children can be encouraged to incorporate voice, characterization, movement, stillness, concentration, and listening into play.
