Maria Montessori

The Montessori Method

One of the landmark books in the history of education, this volume describes a new system for educating youngsters. Based on a radical concept of liberty for the pupil and highly formal training of separate sensory, motor, and mental capacities, the system enabled youngsters to master reading, writing, and arithmetic rapidly and substantially.

    Dr. Montessori’s views of childhood are in some respects identical with those of Froebel, although in general decidedly more radical. Both defend the child’s right to be active, to explore his environment and develop his own inner resources through every form of investigation and creative effort

    Then, too, certain aspects of the system are in themselves striking and significant: it adapts to the education of normal children methods and apparatus originally used for deficients; it is based on a radical conception of liberty for the pupil; it entails a highly formal training of separate sensory, motor, and mental capacities; and it leads to rapid, easy, and substantial mastery of the elements of reading, writing, and arithmetic.
