This part of the course focuses on Materials in Action.
In the audio introduction below, I talk about what you can expect from this unit, and I touch on the burning question: what about clean up?
You will read an interview with Michelle Thornhill, open-ended play advocate.
I share the story of Play Lab, my attempt to bring open-ended play to children, families, and educators in my community.
Next, you'll learn a bit about adventure play: open-ended, child-centered, and risk-embracing.
Finally, you have an opportunity to work through the information so far with an anonymous reflective writing prompt.
