An essential resource for all students and scholars of early childhood education, this book offers a rich array of material about Maria Montessori and the Montessori Method. Distinguished education scholar Gerald Gutek begins with an in-depth biography of Montessori, exploring how a determined young woman overcame the obstacles that blocked her educational and career opportunities in Italy during the late Victorian age. The author then analyzes the sources and influences that shaped the Montessori philosophy of education. After laying the foundation for Montessori's development, Gutek presents an annotated and abridged edition of The Montessori Method (1912), the seminal work that introduced her educational innovations to a U.S. audience. The book concludes with key historical documents, including disciple Anne E. George's notes on the Montessori lectures and William H. Kilpatrick's critique of the Montessori method. Preserving the historical context of Montessori's contribution, Gutek also shows the continuing relevance of her thought to educational reform in the twenty-first century.

In "The Montessori Method," Maria Montessori introduces a scientific approach to pedagogy. The Montessori schools which she established and developed are intended for children three to seven years of age. The children are allowed as much freedom as possible and are provided with "didactic materials" which are various artifacts which they can use to educate themselves. They are supervised by a single directress whose primary task is to observe the children and direct their efforts by explaining to them how various didactic materials are used (it's very simple, but nothing is obvious to a young child). This book offers some valuable concrete advice, but its primary use to me was as an introduction to the approach of scientific pedagogy. The basic premises of the Montessori Method are that (1) children have a natural desire to learn and (2) one can learn how to live in freedom only by being free. These premises are fully supported and fleshed out in the book. The Montessori method achieved startling results, with four year old children (on average) learning to be masters of themselves, disciplined, benevolent, self-confident, and capable of reading and writing. Every educator should be familiar with Maria Montessori's work. This particular edition includes the illustrations from an early printing.

The Montessori Method represents an explicit idealism and turn away from war and violence toward peace and reconstruction. It is built on coherent visions of how to improve human society by helping children realize their full potential as intelligent, creative, whole persons. In the Montessori Method, children are viewed as active authors of their own development, strongly influenced by natural, dynamic, self-righting forces within themselves, opening the way toward growth and learning. Teachers depend for their work with children on carefully prepared, aesthetically pleasing environments that serve as a pedagogical tool and provide strong messages about the curriculum and about respect for children. Partnering with parents is highly valued in the Montessori Method, and children are evaluated by means other than traditional tests and grades.

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. This volume features the following chapters: - How the Lesson Should be Given - Exercises of Practical Life - Nature in Education - Education of the Senses - Intellectual Education - Method for the Teaching of Reading and Writing - Teaching of Numeration: Introduction to Arithmetic
