    The best curriculum isn't taken off the shelf or nailed down months ahead of time. Curriculum should shift and shape to meet children's needs and interests, emerging as teachers and children interact with activities and lessons and weave their combined interests into an emerging curriculum. Listen in on the ongoing discussion among teachers in one program as they and the children move through the year with emergent curriculum. A stimulating resource for getting teachers—or aspiring teachers—thinking about developing meaningful curriculum.
