Course Description

This first of two curriculum courses provides instruction in the planning, design, and implementation of the beginning curriculum areas of Montessori settings for ages 0-6 years old. Strategies for socialization of children group settings through developmentally appropriate practice and curriculum are studied and applied through practical experience. This also provides insight for traditional early childhood education teachers for integration of these methods into their classrooms. The class teaches strategies for teaching young children in the areas of practical life (everyday living), sensory education, art, music and movement. Various methods for individualizing learning and classroom management are stressed.

Prerequisite: Education X321.21, Montessori Philosophy and Pedagogy, or consent of instructor. Additional Thursday evening and Saturday meetings are only required of students pursuing one of the Montessori Certificates. Internet access is required.
