Description

The purpose of this study was to observe the effects that play-based instruction and learning activities have on the classroom, and more specifically, my own teaching practices. This self study used qualitative methods to gather data. Predominantly, a developmental portfolio was used to record observational notes and for daily reflections. Memory work was also used as this study pulled from past experiences with play. Findings showed that play-based learning increased the inclusivity of the general education classroom and levels of student achievement and engagement also increased. The classroom became a positive environment for both the students and teacher, aiding in the development of a supportive classroom community.
