Your Mop Is My Guitar: Emergent Curriculum in Our Classroom.
Dorl, Jennifer; Dizes, Deborah Egan
Young Children, v54 n4 p14-16 Jul 1999
Posits that an emergent curriculum is a continuous revision process. Describes relevant experiences in kindergarten classrooms, noting how students' interests guide activities but teachers keep curricular goals in mind; unit themes are chosen according to children's expressed interests; and the flexibility necessary for this approach makes teaching less predictable but more satisfying because it relates directly to students' concerns.
