Synopsis

One hundred years ago Maria Montessori the first female physician in Italy devised a very different method of educating children based on her observations of how they naturally learn. In Montessori Angeline Stoll Lillard shows that science has finally caught up with Maria Montessori. Lillard presents the research behind eight insights that are foundations of Montessori education describing how each of these insights is applied in the Montessori classroom. In reading this book parents and teachers alike will develop a clear understanding of what happens in a Montessori classroom and more important why it happens and why it works. Lillard however does much more than explain the scientific basis for Montessori's system: Amid the clamor for evidence-based education she presents the studies that show how children learn best makes clear why many traditional practices come up short and describes an ingenious alternative that works. Now with a foreword by Renilde Montessori the youngest grandchild of Maria Montessori Montessori offers a wealth of insights for anyone interested in education.

Montessori : The Science Behind the Genius
Average rating
5 / 5
October 4th, 2013
She not only points out the importance of teaching children but methods not even seen let alone recognized by most authorities on the subject. She does so completely without offense! That alone assures this books importance, as well as it it's popularity.
