With blocks, educators go back to basics
from The New York Times
Huddled together on the reading rug of a pre-kindergarten classroom on the Upper West Side, three budding builders assembled a multilayered church with a Gothic arch. Nearby, another block artist created a castle with a connecting courtyard. Meanwhile, a fifth toiled earnestly on a shaky tower, eliciting oohs and aahs from across the room when it came tumbling down. These were not pre-kindergartners, but members of the Parents League of New York, who had crowded into an oversubscribed workshop on block building. The tower constructor, a lawyer named Matthew Hurd, was still wearing a suit.
