As violence in the media and media-linked toys increases, parents and teachers are also seeing an increase in children's war play. The authors have revised this popular text to provide more practical guidance for working with children to promote creative play, and for positively influencing the lessons about violence children are learning. Using a developmental and sociopolitical viewpoint, the authors examine five possible strategies for resolving the war play dilemma and show which best satisfy both points of view: banning war play; taking a laissez-faire approach; allowing war play with specified limits; actively facilitating war play; and limiting war play while providing alternative ways to work on the issues. New for the Second Edition are: more anecdotal material about adults'' and children's experiences with war play, including examples from both home and school settings; greater emphasis on the impact of media and commercialization on children's war play, including recent trends in media, programming, marketing, and war toys; expanded discussion about the importance of the distinction between imitative and creative war play; and summary boxes of key points directed at teachers or parents. * New information about violent video games, media cross feeding, and gender development and sex-role stereotyping.

Developmental continuity refers to designing early childhood instruction that provides learning experiences based on children's prior knowledge, follows a natural progression across preschool and the early grades, and allows progress at each child's rate and style of learning. There are many ways of providing developmental continuity, but common to all is the idea that teachers, parents, and administrators work together to provide a continuum of developmentally appropriate educational experiences for children. This book is a resource for teachers who wish to put developmental continuity into practice in their classrooms. The book is organized in six chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the meaning and history of developmental continuity and associated problems and concerns. Chapter 2 serves as a planning guide and highlights some projects already in place. Necessary changes in school and classroom organization, the importance of coordination of schools with preschools, and communication with parents and the community are examined in chapter 3. Chapter 4 covers the creation of meaningful curriculum for developmental continuity, and chapter 5 offers suggestions for structuring the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual environment in which the curriculum will be implemented. Finally, chapter 6 examines evaluation issues and discusses methods for documenting children's progress and achievement. Contains 80 references. (TJQ)
