2013 Refresher Course and Workshops
Ready to jumpstart your Montessori career? Join more than 600 international conference attendees comprised of educators, policy makers, teachers, heads of school, assistants, and parents for the 2013 Refresher Course and Workshops, February 15-18, in Tampa, Florida. This conference, the largest annual AMI gathering, reinvigorates participants as well as the AMI movement.
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.
Prof. Tim Kasser of Knox College will set the stage with a keynote based on his work researching the effects of consumerism on happiness or satisfaction with life.
The speakers for the Adolescent Workshop are yet to be determined.
Check back soon for more conference details.
