The Listening Project
Donahoe, Marta
Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, v21 n1 p42-45 2009
Montessori teachers know that no matter how many books they read on child development and brain research, there is no substitute for observing children, seeing them, noticing them, and especially, in the case of the adolescent, being quiet long enough for them to talk. Wanting to know more about the hidden depths of the adolescent soul, the author created, with another teacher, a course they called The Listening Project. In this article, the author describes and discusses The Listening Project which was designed as a 10-day, 2-week immersion course to give students various opportunities to develop better listening skills and to help them understand more about the enlivening quality and healing potential of listening to others.
