4th December - Maria Montessori

Today, one of our classmates made a presentation about Maria Montessori. 

When she started the presented I had just a few ideas of who was Maria Montessori, but after listening to this presentation I could get to know better this incredible women. 

She developed a child-centred educational approach based on scientific observation of children from birth to adulthood. 

It is a view of the children as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child. 

This method was based on: 

- Mixed ages classrooms

- Students choose the activity 

- Use od special materials

- Freedom of movement within the classroom

- Uninterrupted blocks of time
