Description: How is compelling, exemplary curriculum created in schools in spite of the pressures to implement a standardized curriculum? In this book, teachers and principals share their experiences with emergent curriculum, the creative practices theyve developed in urban classrooms, Kindergarten to 3rd grade. We learn what they were trying to do, how they began the process, the challenges they faced, the decisions they made, and what happened with the children. All chapters are written by teachers who have found ways of interpreting the Reggio approach to enrich their teaching within the confines of traditional schools. This book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand emergent curriculum and for all who hope to nurture an enlivening, energizing way to learn in classrooms. The inspiring stories presented here illustrate ways that early childhood values and practices have been sustained and promoted in elementary schools, exemplary teaching practice where children want to learn and teachers want to teach, how the influence of the Reggio Emilia approach is reaching into urban public school environments with diverse populations, and democratic participatory teaching that offers visions of responsible citizenship for children.
