About The Event

Facilitator: Stephen Karmol, MA, Community Trainer


As teachers, we often see young children are interested in play experiences that explore the theme of power. Common elements of power-themed play are capturing and rescuing, family relationships, pretend weapons, superheroes, and war themes. In this training, we will explore:

  • The role of symbolic play in child development;
  • Engaged guidance pratices that support children's play;
  • Emergent curriculum based on power-themed play;
  • advocating for school policy that reflects our understanding of child development - instead of banning play with violent and powerful themes.
