Event description
Fellow Interintellect Matt Bateman leads an exploration of the principles of the Montessori pedagogy and its history as a movement.

About this Event

"Montessori schools are an omnipresent, global, and somewhat perplexing phenomenon.

Montessori is at once:

  • A minority view on schooling, even in early childhood, representing somewhere between 1% and 3% of schools worldwide
  • Still controversial, particularly in the US, where it is viewed alternately both as giving children too much freedom and as being too rigid
  • One of the oldest distinctly recognizable pedagogies, having stayed relatively constant since the early 1900s
  • Growing organically at an accelerating clip
  • Almost entirely grass roots, existing outside of the normal channels for professional education training and developmental research

In this Interintellect Salon, we'll introduce, explore, and ask probing questions about what the Montessori approach to education. The notion of independence is at the heart of Montessori education—but what exactly does that mean, in theory and in practice? What makes the Montessori philosophy distinctive, as compared to traditional education, progressive education, and other developmental approaches? In what sense does Montessori represent a pedagogy that applies beyond early childhood? Why has it always been so grass roots—and why it has had such staying power? What promise does it hold for solving some of the perennial problems in education?

Attendees will be invited to relate their experiences in education and parenting.

The discussion will be facilitated by Matt Bateman, the Vice President of Pedagogy at Higher Ground Education, a Montessori organization that comprised of dozens of Montessori schools, thousands of children and families, and that trains hundreds of Montessori teachers per year." - Salon Host Matt Bateman, PhD
