    ...
    "Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out" done by the MacArthur Foundation has a really great section on youth enterprise, entrepreneurship, and media (Chapter 7, but especially pages 307-323).
    {Hanging_Out.pdf}
    Melrose, Regalena. “Why Waldorf Works: From a Neuroscientific Perspective”
    Offers an in-depth explanation of why play-based schooling works for children, based on studies of brain development. Provides a factual basis for supporting play-based curriculum, which strengthens the position of advocates and gives skeptics a framework for implementing play-based curriculum.

    Backstory
    This is from the web page: http://cainesarcade.com/about/
    Caine Monroy is a 9-year old boy who spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store.
    Caine dreamed of the day he would have lots of customers visit his arcade, and he spent months preparing everything, perfecting the game design, making displays for the prizes, designing elaborate security systems, and hand labeling paper-lunch-gift-bags. However, his dad’s autoparts store (located in an industrial part of East LA) gets almost zero foot traffic, so Caine’s chances of getting a customer were very small, and the few walk in customers that came through were always in too much of a hurry to get their auto part to play Caine’s Arcade. But Caine never gave up.
    One day, by chance, I walked into Smart Parts Auto looking for a used door handle for my ’96 Corolla. What I found was an elaborate handmade cardboard arcade manned by a young boy who asked if I would like to play. I asked Caine how it worked and he told me that for $1 I could get two turns, or for $2 I could get a Fun Pass with 500 turns. I got the Fun Pass.
    Comprehension Questions:
    How old is Caine?
    What was Caine’s Dream?
    Why was it difficult for Caine to get customers?
    Would you purchase a Fun Pass? Why?
