What is Montessori Method?
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. It's helpful for conceptual purposes to think of teachers as conductors of an intricate orchestra of students and young minds, rather than drill sergeants of unruly young children.
The Montessori method, essentially divides up the curriculum into five more focused genres;
Teachers guide their students through a prepared environment, which is the classroom, among lessons and activities, which both tease a child's interest or curiosity and are skill/development appropriate for each unique child.
Children accomplish lessons and activities that interest them. As a result, they learn exponentially quicker, prior and more efficiently than by traditional methods.
Montessori Method History
The method was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian Doctor of Medicine that looked at education from a scientific level, who designed materials and techniques that promote a natural growth of students' learning.
