    By Elizabeth Jones, Kathleen Evans, & Kay Stritzel Rencken

    Standards, accountability, and curriculum frameworks all have a legitimate place in education. But today's schools often push to the side what should be at the very center: children and teachers. The result is classrooms that are less effective and immeasurably duller. Creating emergent curriculum is not easy, especially in the public-school world, but it is educationally powerful. Read eloquent stories of emergent curriculum in action—the struggles real teachers face and strategies to make this approach work.
