The Montessori Way, published in 2003, is an essential addition to any Montessori bookshelf.
The wealth of color photographs and magazine-article style chapters make the content accessible to the layman while providing detailed information for students of education or staff of Montessori schools. The first section gives an overview of the approach, covering those aspects which define good practice in Montessori schools. The second section examines and explains the concept of “Planes of Development”, clearly outlining how the different stages require a different style of education and how the prepared environments cater for the various age groups. The last two sections answer many questions parents raise regarding the benefits of Montessori for their children, and give valuable guidelines on choosing a school.
This book provides such a comprehensive treatment of Montessori that schools would benefit from making copies available to prospective parents. The book also boasts a list of resources and a comprehensive bibliography, along with a reliable index, which make it an invaluable reference source for schools.
