Montessori and Constructivism.
Elkind, David
Montessori Life, v15 n1 p26-29 Win 2003
Presents three basic epistemological positions (empiricism, nativism, and constructivism) and argues that Maria Montessori's educational practice reflected all three positions. Describes how the constructivist position is reflected in the High/Scope program, and compares and contrasts this position with that of Montessori. Asserts that although Montessori and constructivists have taken different routes to educational practice, both programs are age-appropriate and emphasize observing the child to determine the best educational intervention.
