 Engaging Students through Play (Sumita Lall and Heather Aguailar)

 In his book, Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul, Stuart Brown suggests that “Play is a state of mind, rather than an activity" (60). Safe and playful environments engage a wider range of students to feel internally motivated to listen and interact with each other and the teacher. This workshop will explore and demonstrate ways to increase “play” in our classrooms.
