A Vygotskian Approach

Streaming Video - 2011
Rate this:
This program offers both theoretical and practical perspectives on dramatic play. Through sequences of young children playing house, doctor's office, rescue squadron, and trick-or-treating, the theoretical positions that Vygotsky and other prominent theorists have taken in systematically studying play are illustrated. The video provides a thorough review of traditional ways of studying play (the Freudian-Eriksonian emphasis on its emotional content, the Piagetian view of its importance in symbolic representation, and the social psychological approach of looking at how play contributes to socialization) while showcasing Vygotsky's contribution of seeing play as an arena in which children can begin to master their own behavior. The program ends with practical suggestions for fostering high-level play in early childhood settings.
