Reading, Writing, and Mathematics: Explored and Discovered Rather than Taught.
Haines, Annette M.
NAMTA Journal, v28 n1 p43-55 Win 2003
Examines reading, writing, and mathematics for older primary children within the Montessori setting. Emphasizes normalization and engaging links with the prepared environment, focusing on how discovery moments in reading and contexts for learning around culture create natural conditions for learning. Asserts that the guided discovery approach means careful planning and direction for the child and that adults must know the passages and meaning of each activity the child chooses. (Author/KB)
