9780452279896: Maria Montessori: Her Life and Work

Maria Montessori is important background reading for parents considering Montessori education for their children, as well as for those training to become Montessori teachers. The first woman to win a degree as a Doctor of Medicine in Italy in 1896, Maria Montessori?s mission to improve children?s education began in the slums of Rome in 1907, and continued throughout her lifetime. Her insights into the minds of children led her to develop prepared environments and other tools and devices that have come to characterize Montessori education today. Her influence in other countries has been profound and many of her teaching methods have been adopted by educators generally. Part biography and part exposition of her ideas, this engaging book reveals through her letters and personal diaries Maria Montessori?s humility and delight in the success of her educational experiments and is an ideal introduction to the principals and practices of the greatest educational pioneer of the 20th century.

  • The new introduction to Maria Montessori: Her Life and Work by Lee Havis, executive director of the International Montessori Society, discusses the changes that have taken place in Montessori education within recent years.
  • An updated appendix of Montessori periodicals, courses, societies, films, and teaching materials.
  • A revised bibliography of books by and about Maria Montessori.

Palma "Bilingual Education Teacher" (Mexico City) - I have read this work for many years and still find something new about this genius who was far ahead of her times. Generations of children have had a better life because of her unique way of "following the child." She wrote pamphlets on ecology, protecting the corals, protecting the ecosystems, water cycles, education for peace, reality education, time lines many, many years before anyone else. ## A Montessori school trustee (and parent) says thumbs up!, June 24, 1996This is the book that opened Montessori's theories and achievements to me in a way her own writing never managed to. The Standings are not unbiased, having worked with Dr. Montessori --- but they do an excellent job of weaving Montessori's life story with her teaching discoveries and methods. If someone is interested in learning about the Montessori method, and can only read one book, this is the one.". Bookseller Inventory # 23621
