The objective of this study is to study how children in the age group
6-9 hear and tell stories and subsequently build a toy(s) that will aid
them in the process. I will observe the child playing in a natural
setting in the presence of a parent. The observation will take place at
This study will involve me observing your child playing (hearing or
telling a story). You will also be present and playing with him or her
at the time, and I will ask a few questions of you during this play
time. This activity will go on for about 90 mins and be audio taped. My
goal is to learn how children like to hear and tell stories. The session
will be informal and we want to observe the kid play in a manner that is
both innate and comfortable to him/her. I will try to make it as much
fun as possible! Contact me if you have any questions. I will be send
more detailed information if you are interested.
