for an online view of the 2013 Refresher Course and Workshops Brochure
Ready to jumpstart your Montessori career? The 2013 refresher course and workshops will celebrate our rich history, unique communities, teams of our schools along with their strength and resilience as we move forward to offer Montessori to all children.
Join more than 700 school leaders, teachers, assistants and parents at the annual refresher course in Tampa. Together we will look at Montessori’s approach in a deeper way across all planes of development from infant and toddler through the adolescent years, hear outside speakers and how Montessori resonates with current trends and in doing so we will build a stronger presence for Montessori as leaders in education.
This year’s title, Guiding the Universal Child to Maturity: The Formative Roles of Family, School, Community, and Culture places the child in the center and addresses the influences of the myriad environments he comes in contact with every day—the experience of the world, the family, the prepared environment; the surrounding community with its diversity, challenges, demographics, history; and the surrounding global culture with its dynamics and trends.
All of these forces interact with one another and all impinge on the child’s experience of growing up, of self-construction.
