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.
