|Montessori teachers help challenging students develop their confidence |
by giving them responsibilities in the classroom.
My most challenging Montessori student was a little boy who was not interested in doing anything. He enjoyed coming to school each day, but when it came to work time, he would happily walk around the classroom with his hands in his pockets. We encouraged him to work with all sorts of Montessori materials but nothing sparked his interest. We were very concerned that this little boy was going to not learn anything.
As much as possible, NAMC’s web blog reflects the Montessori curriculum as provided in its teacher training programs. We realize and respect that Montessori schools are unique and may vary their schedules and offerings in accordance with the needs of their individual communities. We hope that our readers will find our articles useful and inspiring as a contribution to the global Montessori community. © the North American Montessori Center - originally posted in its entirety at Montessori Teacher Training on Monday, July 30, 2012.
