CC 0307 Superhero Play and Beyond! - Teaching Empathy Using Superhero Values - #1


Please note, this is a 3 hour session. You will need to select its continuation, CC 0313, for the next time slot.

Bring your cape and fly into this session for the opportunity to gather and share tips related to the value of superhero play. Play is the foundational component of young children’s learning and motivation. Because of children’s high motivation to be fully engaged in super hero play, it gives us an opportunity to guide highly emotional value conversations such as right/wrong, life/death, mercy/justice and beyond.  A superhero kit will be provided for each table to use during the session. The kits will be available for purchase at the end of the conference.
