Example text

Innovations are, to be sure, happening in traditional schooling. Some people will read the chapters to come and respond that their own children’s schools are incorporating evidence-based changes, making them more like Montessori schools — eliminating grades, combining ages, using a lot of group work, and so on. One could take the view that over the years, traditional schooling has gradually been discovering and incorporating many of the principles that Dr. Montessori discovered in the first half of the 20th century.

Indeed, Dr. Montessori used two years to teach the Elementary curriculum to teachers, whereas the longest-running Elementary training courses today teach it in a year. After learning to trace the Metal Insets, children learn to draw a series of connected parallel straight lines inside of the frame, which teaches children to control the hand and pencil in the natural flowing motion of writing. Dr. Montessori saw this flowing motion to be easier for children than stopping and lifting the pencil frequently, so she had children learn cursive writing before learning to print.

When progressive schools fail, it may sometimes be because they trade the authoritarian teacher-centered features of many traditional schools for their opposite: permissive, overly child-centered ones. As described in chapter 8, Dr. Montessori prescribed a third style, one consistent with what is called authoritative parenting and known to be associated with the most optimal child outcomes. Her advice to teachers is reminiscent of the adult styles associated with positive child outcomes in other domains as well.
