Description

This book study will incorporate the Socratic method of using guiding questions to conduct and shape the discussions of the details and significant themes of the book "Purposeful Play" and guide the participants through the entire process so that participants will be able to understand, construct, and implement a classroom environment based on several different kinds of classroom play from play acting to scientific inquiry. This book is packed with ideas that allow teachers to incorporate rigorous academic learning into the real live world of children's play. In addition, the book shows teachers how to develop the social and emotional skills that children must have in order to succeed in the classroom and later in life. Concrete connections will be made to STEM subjects and careers that use exploration, inquiry processes, and collaboration.  The book study takes an in-depth look and creates a discussion rich environment that allows participants to explore and discuss the ideas surrounding the play-filled classroom.
