Q

My proposal involves seeking the best method for building a playground at an elementary school.

I would like to know if there are Journals/Magazines or databases available that you would recommend from the UHD library online where I could find information on the impact of playground/recess time in elementary schools. I would like to be able to include research studies or articles that show a positive impact on academic success when recess is a regular part of the school day.

Answer

I suggest you use some of our education databases. To find them, start at the Library homepage https://www.uhd.edu/library/Pages/library-index.aspx. Select the DATABASES tab and click on the Databases by Subject link. Then click on Education. You’ll be at a list of good databases for education. I suggest you try a few of them, but Academic Search Complete (the first database listed) is a good place to start. If you’re off campus, you’ll need to login with your eServices account information once you click on the database title.

In the database, enter in some combinations of these terms in the different search boxes:

Recess

Play

Physical activity

Playgrounds

AND

Learning

Cognitive development

Cognitive performance

Academic success

You can also click the Full Text and Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Journals check boxes on the first screen of the database. Once in the Results screen, you can use the options in the left column to narrow your results (by date, for instance).
