Designed to help the reader develop strategies for observing and interpreting children's play activities, using case studies drawn from challenging classroom environments. The text aims to illustrate: what teachers can learn from observing children at play; how they can use play to gain insights into how children are interpreting the experiences offered to them in different areas of the curriculum; and that play need not be confined to the early years.
