Pursuing Bad Guys: Responding to Imaginative Violent Play Using a Transformative Approach (Early Childhood Investigations)
Thursday, June 15, 2023
In this fascinating webinar, Donna King, a preschool teacher, and author of Pursuing Bad Guys: Joining Children’s Quest for Clarity Courage and Community, and Pam, a pedagogical consultant, will tell the story of their work
together on a long-term investigation of “Bad Guys.” We have all observed children playing “bad guys” in their pretend play, and grappled with whether to intervene or not, and if so, how to handle those moments. If you typically encourage creative and spontaneous imaginative play you are likely to be unsure how to constructively respond to violent imaginative play. This webinar explores a specific approach and the stories of how the approach works.
