“Emergent Curriculum in Early Childhood Settings is a thoughtful
dissection of an incredible teaching method. Susan Stacey is
obviously a powerful thinker because she can take a huge, abstract
idea and parcel it out into comprehensible input. Until reading this
book, I had never so clearly understood how to create an emergent
curriculum on my own.”
