The Montessori Method is an all-encompassing introduction to Dr. Montessori’s popular alternative approach to educating and nurturing children as they develop, written by the Italian physician.
The Montessori teaching method focuses on a child’s natural abilities and interests, and encourages hands-on learning. Removing the formality of traditional elements of education, such as examinations, Dr. Montessori’s approach to teaching gives children the opportunity to learn from their mistakes and develop at their own pace. First published in 1912 and featuring original illustrations, this introduction to the method is clear and simple, making it an ideal read for teachers and parents alike.
