You will locate a peer-reviewed article related to the role of play to early childhood curriculum. 
You may want to focus on one or more of the following: 
Play as it is seen by a specific theory, philosophy, or approach (e.g. Reggio Emilia, Constructivism)
The role of a specific kind of play (e.g. Pretend play, block play, puppets) and how it relates to a particular curriculum model
How play can be used to promote a specific component of curriculum
CITE THE SOURCE in APA style at the top of the page (see Noodlebib, or other CCAC Library tools for help with this). 
Write a brief introduction that describes why you chose this article and what you hoped to learn at the outset of your research.
Summarize the article. This typed, double-spaced, one-page summary is called an abstract. When writing an abstract, it is not appropriate to reproduce or summarize the entire article. Instead, provide the key points or most significant information, as concisely as possible. In some cases, you might choose to include part of the original text within your abstract. In these cases you MUST put quotation marks around the words you are copying, followed by the page number in parentheses. 
Discuss the article and how you, as an early childhood teacher, might use it to plan engaging curriculum for young children.”
