This podcast is all about the Montessori method.  I share my findings on the method, plus a video clip I shared a while back.

1.) responsibility (which is basically the kids learning self-discipline, caring for people around them, and engaging in social context),

2.) self-discipline, and

3.) concentration  (where kids have lengthy periods of study and exploration)

Benefits of the Montessori Method

  1. Students are part of a close, caring community.
  2. Montessori students develop order, concentration, independence, and coordination.  Self regulation is  a plus.
  3. Each child is valued and a unique individual.
  4. Children have freedom to discover and explore within limits.
  5. Students are supported in becoming a seeker of knowledge.
  6. Self correction and self assessment.
