The overview presented in Montessori Today – A Comprehensive Approach to Education, states that this book is an invaluable guide to parents who want to know, “and what now?” after preschool.
Most parents are familiar with Montessori preschools and their unique approach to the education of young children. But what happens after the primary years? Montessori elementary and middle schools have sprung up all over the country and Paula Polk Lillard provides a clear and cogent introduction to the Montessori program for these schools.
In detailed accounts of both the theory and the practice of Montessori methods, Lillard shows how children acquire the skills to answer their own questions, learn to manage freedom with responsibility, maintain a high level of intellectual curiosity and become active rather than passive learners at all levels.
Ideal for parents, teachers and all those who are concerned about education today.
