The Montessori method is a child-centered alternative educational method for children, based on theories of child development originated by Italian educator Maria Montessori (1870-1952) in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is applied primarily in preschool and elementary school settings although some Montessori high schools exist.
The Montessori method is characterized by an emphasis on self-directed activity on the part of the child and clinical observation on the part of the teacher (often called a director, directress, or guide). It stresses the importance of adapting the child's learning environment to his or her developmental level, and of the role of physical activity in absorbing abstract concepts and practical skills. It is also characterized by the use of autodidactic (self-correcting) equipment for introduction and learning of various concepts.
The Montessori method teaches reading via phonics and whole language, the comparative benefits of which are presently being recognized. While the Montessori name has achieved some attention, it is not a trademark and is associated with more than one organization. There are schools 'influenced' by Montessori which bear little resemblance to (and have received substantial criticism from) other institutions with closer lineage to Montessori's work.
