The article, "Untangling Teacher-Child Play Interactions: Do Teacher Education and Experience Influence Good-Fit Responses to Children's Play?" reports research findings that indicate that higher levels of education predict preschool teachers' sensitivity to and understanding of children's play in classrooms. The authors will be honored in an award ceremony in Orlando, FL in November.
