The Unscripted Classroom: Emergent Curriculum in Action

Bring emergent curriculum to life!

Step out of your usual scripts and use innovative practices as you respond to children's budding interests. The Unscripted Classroom encourages creativity and flexibility as you observe, interact with, and teach children to better support their passion for learning.

A valuable way to learn about teaching is to watch master teachers at work and understand why they do what they do. Filled with stories from teachers sharing their own experiences, The Unscripted Classroom reveals why teachers responded to children's ideas and classroom events in particular ways. These stories will inspire you to think creatively as you observe, reflect, and respond to children. An overview of emergent curriculum philosophy, an examination of creativity in the classroom, and observation and planning forms are included.

Age Focus: 2-5. Softbound, 192 pgs.

Review by: The Bookwatch, July 2011 issue of "The Bookwatch," published by The Midwest - July 1, 2011
The Unscripted Classroom: Emergent Curriculum in Action provides a fine way to use new practices to tie into a child's emerging creativity, offering a flexible set of routines for early childhood educators interested in enlivening the curriculum. From using stories for professional development to handling toddlers and embracing and teaching the unexpected, this packs in invaluable learning tools in a pick for any early childhood professional collection.
Review: June 2011 Book News Inc. - June 1, 2011
Stacey, an early childhood consultant and teacher educator, explains the use of emergent curriculum in early childhood classrooms. She draws from stories from teachers to illustrate how teachers can collaborate with children around their ideas, questions, development, and topics of interest. She describes what emergent curriculum is, the role of observation and listening, the concept of creativity in teaching, the importance of telling stories for professional development, and shares stories about developing activities, scaffolding knowledge, making changes in the physical environment, using documentation as a tool for reflection, following unexpected tangents, and writing a plan for the curriculum that emerges. She then addresses the role of teacher education programs and a profect that synthesizes these aspects fromt he perspective of a new teacher. There is no index. (Annotation 2011 Book News Inc. Portland, OR)
Review: May 2011 issue of Young Children, published by NAEYC - May 1, 2011
The book includes a journal by a teacher who records her confusion and successes as she participates in an emergent curriculum classroom for the first time. Her perspective is especially pertinent for teachers who are new to emergent curriculum; it is a lesson in professional development. This is a good choice for introducing emergent curriculum to teachers and perspective teachers.
