Montessori : The Science Behind The Genius NEW!



One hundred and ten years ago, Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy, devised a very different method of educating children, based on her observations of how they naturally learn. In Montessori, Angeline Stoll Lillard shows that science has finally caught up with Maria Montessori. Lillard presents the research behind nine insights that are foundations of Montessori education, describing how each of these insights is applied in the Montessori classroom. In reading this book, parents and teachers alike will develop a clear understanding of what happens in a Montessori classroom and, more important, why it happens and why it works. Lillard explains the scientific basis for Montessori's system and the distinctions between practices in traditional, "Montessomething," and authentic Montessori education. Furthermore, in this new edition, she presents recent studies showing evidence that this alternative to traditional schooling does indeed make a difference. Montessori is indispensable reading for anyone interested in teaching, training, or considering Montessori schooling, in developmental psychology, or in understanding about human learning and education overall.

In Montessori, Angeline Stoll Lillard shows that science has finally caught up with Maria Montessori. Lillard presents the research behind eight insights that are foundations of Montessori education, describing how each of these insights is applied in the Montessori classroom. In reading this book, parents and teachers alike will develop a clear understanding of what happens in a Montessori classroom and, more important, why it happens and why it works. Lillard, however, does much more than explain the scientific basis for Montessori's system: Amid the clamor for evidence-based education, she presents the studies that show how children learn best, makes clear why many traditional practices come up short, and describes an ingenious alternative that works. Now with a foreword by Renilde Montessori, the youngest grandchild of Maria Montessori, Montessori offers a wealth of insights for anyone interested in education.(Publisher). Very good / very good.

The Montessori, the science behind the genius book written by Angeline Stoll Lillard and published by Oxford University Press features research supporting the eight insights that are the foundation of Montessori education.


There are two primary, and we should mention ambitious, purposes of the book, which are scoped out from the start. First, to make Montessori accessible to researchers. Second, to make psychology research accessible to parents and teachers. These two threads are of vital importance to the development of the narrative, as they work to offer an approachable, meaningful context in which to examine the science behind Montessori.


For anyone interested in the science behind Montessori, we highly recommend this wonderful and tightly-packed (which is not to say unexpectedly arduous) read. Everyone at Baan Dek thoroughly enjoyed learning more about how the intuitions Maria Montessori discovered over one-hundred-years ago, were scientifically relevant, if not, still-more-advanced, than current educational practices. 041b061a72
