Montessori Language and the Sensitive Period for the Imagination and Culture.
McKenzie, Ginger Kelley
Montessori Life, v7 n3 p38-39 Sum 1995
Proposes ways to create a language curriculum based on children's "sensitive periods" as described by Montessori. Suggests that ages 6 through 12 are a sensitive period for using imagination. Creative expression should be an integral part of the entire curriculum, and creative expression can be stimulated through many sources of writing experiences such as creative writing, poetry, research, editorials, and myths.
