Product description

When teachers use curriculum driven by children's emerging interests, they create a captivating environment where children learn and discover by participating in activities they enjoy. This book explores the components of emergent curriculum and how its practices and principles can improve the educational culture of early childhood programs. Emergent Curriculum offers a unique and thorough explanation of these concepts as well as information on how to observe, reflect, interpret, document, and plan long-term projects using this method. Early childhood educators have the crucial responsibility to provide effective teaching that will foster children's enthusiasm for learning. This book is an invitation to dream, develop, and implement the curriculum that accomplishes this.
