We’re pleased to be able to offer this five-page downloadable study guide for your personal use or for use with a book study or discussion group. Besides offering over 50 questions to spark thought and comments, the study guide contains color photos of children working in Montessori classrooms around the world.


Some sample questions follow:


From Chapter 1: So You Keep Hearing About Montessori

The three-hour work cycle in a Montessori classroom is a vital factor in children’s learning success. How have you experienced the “learn-do-commit” process of a success cycle?

From Chapter 3: Montessori Principles: More Than Teaching

If a child is failing it is never the child’s fault. How do Montessori teaching principles address this idea?

From Chapter 5: What? No Grades?

What do you think are the most important things for your children to learn in life?

From Chapter 7: Visiting A Montessori School

What might you expect if you visited a Montessori school? What qualities do you think should be physically present? Consider pedagogical principles (page 35) and human tendencies (page 32) in your thinking process.
