At the Heart of Montessori: Core Principles v. 1

9781906018641: At the Heart of Montessori: Core Principles v. 1

Maria Montessori (1870-1952) developed both a philosophy and a method of education that are becoming even more relevant as our society races forward. This society often lacks a sound methodology for preparing children to deal with the world they live in. Montessori focused on finding a method of education that matched our true human nature. This allows children to learn to manage their own lives, while exploring with joy, themselves, their immediate world, their society and the amazing cosmos to which they belong. True education!"The Hello Montessori" series provides a thorough easy-to-follow explanation of Maria Montessori's philosophy and educational method for all ages from birth to adolescence. These books will be of special interest to Montessori teachers or trainee teachers, acting as a support to, but not as a substitute for, Montessori teacher training. In addition parents, teachers and others who wish to find out about how children develop and how to help them as they grow, will find the books useful and interesting. The first two books (At the Heart of Montessori 1 and 2) should be read as a foundation as they apply to all age groups. Then choose the book that relates to the age of choice. "Core Principles", the title of the first book in a series of six, and "Core Principles in Action", the second book, cover a broad spectrum of Montessori's philosophy of education and its implementation. They envelope the principles of this philosophy, in an attractive and digestible way.
