The Hungry Mind: From the Casa dei Bambini to Cosmic Education
Grazzini, Baiba Krumins
NAMTA Journal, v41 n1 p91-103 Win 2016
Baiba Krumins Grazzini has generously transformed her lecture, delivered at the AMI-USA Refresher Course in 2014, into a legacy article. This article establishes the role of storytelling in Cosmic Education while capturing both the whole and the detailed parts of Montessori Cosmic Education. Working from the early childhood transition into the elementary years, she frames the second plane as more than a successive stage of development but, more importantly, as a continuation of growth through the work of imagination. She has given the presentation "life, not theories" by adding her authentic perspective to the dynamics of the crowning movement of stages that is the first to second plane. A bibliography is included.
