HHD 2521 - THEORY, MEANING AND PRACTICE OF PLAY AND ACTIVITY

Credits: 3.0

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the role of play and activity in human development, with a particular focus on ways of utilizing play and activity to promote positive growth in social, emotional, physical, and cognitive domains; and on interpreting the meaning of individual and group play and activity. Play and activity in the lives of persons of all ages will be considered with some emphasis on the early and school years. While academic learning is essential in this course, the focus will be on hands-on, real play as the ideal way to learn about it, and encouragement of a life-long playful spirit.
