Learning Zone Express (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
A century ago, Maria Montessori, Italy's first female physician, inspired an educational movement. Through what has come to be known as the Montessori method, children essentially teach themselves through sensory-rich and hands-on activities facilitated by instructors who focus on nurturing their students' efforts. Useful to childcare providers as well as teachers in training, this program presents levels of Montessori education ranging from infant to elementary and explains how each level makes use of the Montessori method.
