What are the main goals of an emergent curriculum?
The goal of emergent curriculum is to respond to every child’s inter- ests. Its practice is open-ended and self-directed. It depends on teacher initiative and intrinsic motivation, and it lends itself to a play-based environ- ment.
What is the role of the teacher in the teaching/learning experience?
A teacher’s role is to make judgments about how best to help their students learn in the environments in which they teach. Teachers reflect on their practice to grow and improve. As they do this, their experience informs their intuition for decision-making, and they become better at it (Berliner, 2004).
Where do the ideas for teachers who implement emergent curriculum come from?
Emergent curriculum arises naturally from adult-child and child-child interactions that create “teachable moments.” It connects learning with experience and prior learning. It responds to children’s immediate interests rather than focusing on a narrow, individual, or calendar driven topic.
What role do teachers play in curriculum?
Curriculum is content, but when contextualized, it comes alive for students. The role of teachers in the curriculum process is to help students develop an engaged relationship with the content. Teachers build lessons that include simulations, experiments, case studies and activities to deliver curriculum.
