Educator Summer Session: "Entering Children's Worlds: Socio-Dramatic Play in the Early Learning Setting"

Date
Wed, Jul 17 2019, 10am - Fri, Jul 19 2019, 3pm
Location
Bing Nursery School and the Tower House
Stanford University
850/860 Escondido Road
Stanford CA 94305

Young children engaging in socio-dramatic play enter into a complex system of roles, themes, interactions and negotiations. How does socio-dramatic play develop and what do young children gain from this type of play? How is this pretend world created – and impacted – by school environment, children’s peers or teachers? 

In this 2 ½ day workshop, participants will approach this topic in a variety of ways, including presentations by Bing teachers, individual and collaborative reflective exercises, and classroom observations. Through these experiences, participants will investigate authentic socio-dramatic play, explore ways peer culture, home experiences and classroom environments influence children’s play experiences, and gain new perspectives on the pretend worlds of children to support their teaching practice back in the classroom.
