The relevance of role playing in environmental education.
This article published by the Commission on Biology Education summarizes a study of the relevance of role-playing in environmental education. The researchers created different role-plays and analyzed them in light of certain values that 8 to 10 year-old children were able to distinguish. They determined that role-plays do have an impact and they facilitate the emergence of values such as solicitude, aestheticism, solidarity, tolerance, responsibility and autonomy.
