This book is offered as an alternative approach to planning teaching. It is an alternative to the dominant procedure recommended for planning lessons and units of study, and an alternative to some of the dominant principles recommended for selecting content for teaching. The dominant model and principles are derived from educational research and theorizing that has almost entirely ignored the power and educational uses of children's imagination. A constant focus of this book, then, will be on areas of children's intellectual activity in which we can see imagination at work, or play.
