An insightful guide to this philosophy of education, covering its origins, features and practices.
Marion O'Donnell is a Montessori World Educational Institute (Australia) Workshop Lecturer, Examiner and Tutor. She has worked as a teacher all over the world, including in the UK, Canada and Australia. She has also lectured at the Queensland University of Technology, Australia, and been a researcher at the University of Queensland, Australia.
This comprehensive critique provides enduring insights into the social and scientific pedagogy bequeathed to us by the late, great Dottoressa. O'Donnell writes with great perception about the universal natural laws of child development which underpin all of Maria Montessori's objective, analytical, clinical observations. She has not shirked from setting out Montessori philosophy within historical debates about 'naturalist' education research. Montessori's years of observations of children's activities in the early Casa dei Bambini informed her emergent theories and resulted in the ethnography which is The Montessori Method. In the words of the Dottoressa herself, 'teach little and observe much'. * Wendy Fidler, Academic Director, Montessori Education for Autism (MEfA), UK *
