How do we understand what curriculum 'is' and 'does' for both learners and teachers? Using actual field-based vignettes, this book introduces teachable moment-oriented, emergent-oriented, and negotiation-oriented curricula practices, and explores how, while the three curricula notions are distinctively different from one another, they are simultaneously interconnected. Teachable Moments is a valuable resource for teachers at all levels. In addition, this is a book for senior undergraduate- and graduate-level early childhood curriculum courses, as well as graduate students and faculty who are interested in studying contemporary postmodern curricula discourses.

This book develops a general theory of autonomous teaching by examining a mysterious educational idea: the teachable moment. By formulating an understanding of the teachable moment as predicated upon ‘educational energy,’ this book takes up John Dewey’s view of teaching to articulate a law-like, scientifically oriented pedagogical theory. By offering a testable hypothesis about effective teaching through an innovative reading of Dewey’s law, this book also provides insights into changes in school practice and schooling policy consonant with an understanding of teaching as a science.

Teachable Moments is a personal reflection on the world’s most familiar prayer taken from the lips of Jesus Himself, repeated in every language on a weekly basis in churches throughout the world. Written in a readable and thought-provoking style, Teachable Moments will prompt new thoughts about Jesus’s radical theology of God as Abba Father. When Jesus taught his disciples this brief prayer, he had an agenda much larger than just the words we pray. He was addressing our understanding of God and the nature of our relationship with God. He was teaching about the nature of citizenship in God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Kingdom citizens practice forgiveness breaking the unhealthy cycle of revenge and retaliation. Jesus warned about temptation and the nature of pervasive evil in the world. Jesus’s goal was to correct all the wrong-headed misconceptions the world has accumulated about the one true God who He understood as Abba Father. Finally, this provocative book asks the all-important question: What kind of Jesus says and teaches things like these? Who is the Jesus we are following?
We are confronted in this teachable moment with a revolutionary new way of thinking about our relationship with God. In this teachable moment, Jesus's prayer is teaching us to want what God wants: The reign of His Kingdom to come on ...

Creative teaching is an art form – aesthetic, intuitive and expressive. The proliferation of new educational policies in the early 1990s and the related increase in tensions and dilemmas facing schools, combined with the growing demand for a wider range of skills and knowledge among children meant that there was an even greater need for creative teaching than before the National Curriculum. Originally published in 1996, this book addresses this need by: exploring the features of creative teaching with a focus on the day to day practice of primary teachers; showing how teachers used emotion, created atmosphere and stimulated imagination to enhance their teaching; examining the ways in which teachers managed the National Curriculum and developed a new professional discourse in response to government pressures at the time. This book is a sequel to Creative Teachers in Primary Schools and builds upon this work providing new insights into the art of teaching.
