Theory into Practice: Advancing Normalization for the Child under Three
Conklin-Moore, Alyssa
NAMTA Journal, v42 n2 p63-96 Spr 2017
Alyssa Conklin-Moore discusses normalization in the child under three from several perspectives. She takes an extensive look at the child, including orienting parents to the Montessori environment, the child's entrance into the environment, addressing the sensitive periods, and fostering independence, contribution, and community. She reminds the guide of aspects to constantly keep in mind when considering the environment, including the outdoor environment. Importantly, she reminds the practitioner to constantly self-reflect. From start to finish, she offers practical tools that are deeply rooted in a strong Montessori philosophy. [This talk was presented at the NAMTA conference titled Finding the Hook: Montessori Strategies to Support Concentration, October 6-9, 2016, in Columbia, MD.]
