We loved this article recently featured in Time online. While play in the early childhood classroom has been a popular topic in recent months, play in middle and high school classrooms has been largely overlooked. The author, Dr. Hilary G. Conklin of DePaul University, recently published her findings about incorporating play into post-elementary school classrooms in the American Educational Research Journal. If you’re a parent of an older child or an advocate for play at all ages, read the full article and her findings here: http://time.com/3726098/learning-through-play-teenagers-education/.
