Lillard, Angeline S. – Early Child Development and Care, 2021
Montessori education was developed over 100 years ago, and persists as a marginal 'niche reform' of the standard model.

I explain how Montessori collapses and thereby resolves the dichotomies, and does so…

Montessori, Maria – NAMTA Journal, 2016
Followers of Maria Montessori become accustomed to the oft-repeated stories that drive home a point, but here is a new treasure.

Montessori, Maria – NAMTA Journal, 2016
Montessori discusses the importance of the calm inner life (the soul) of the very young child. She stresses the importance of the soul's self-management, the child knowing what he needs to do, and of course, being allowed to do what he needs to do. The child can repeat the exercise or move ahead according to minimal clear and precise guidance from…
