In this book Dr. Maria Montessori traces her path to the revolution in child pedagogy that bears her name. The Montessori method is not simply a way of teaching—it is a way of life within a school. Starting with the premise that children learn by teaching themselves, Montessori redefines a teacher’s role in the classroom as an unobtrusive scientific observer; the many classroom apparatuses designed by Montessori herself use a child’s own senses to guide learning. As the world descended into war during the first half of the twentieth century, the Montessori method spread from its origins in Rome and Maria Montessori took up the mantra, “Educate for Peace”. Today, variations on the Method are popular, but this book remains the seminal treatise on a Montessori education.
