Montessori Researchby ricocarell
Now accepted as as a scientifically supported approach to learning, Montessori research and enhancement programs have been effective in revamping the perception of the Montessori way. What used to be quirky and strange is now backed by educators, scientists, and parents, proving it to be one of the fastest growing strategies in the country.
The process of changing Montessoriâ€™s image has by no means been easy. Known for its lack of structure and reputation for giving children a free reign in choosing their own activities, Montessori was regarded as not just progressive, but radical by those adhering to traditional learning methods.
Montessori research and development programs approached these views directly. With comprehensive research done by experts in the fields of education and child development, the organization has been successful in breaking away from the Montessori image of old. Montessori is now affiliated with creative and scientific approaches to learning.
With results and findings being shared with the public, there has been a demand for access to Montessori ideas and methods. No longer exclusive to private schools, some teaching approaches are now utilized in public school settings. It is predicted that Montessori teachings will continue to be successful in the world of mainstream education.
