Rene’ Steinkamp and Dr. Laura Saylor presented at the American Montessori Society Conference
Rene’ Steinkamp (Upper Elementary Teacher) and Dr. Laura Saylor (previous CMA head of school) on Saturday, March 14th presented at the American Montessori Society Conference. It was a great honor to be accepted to speak at this national conference. They presented on Speaking the Language; Understanding and Communicating with the Non-Montessori Educational Community. It is so interesting that the buzz words used in traditional education so easily relate to Montessori principles. During the presentation you can also analyze how the Common Core Standards relate to Montessori principles, especially in getting children to think critically and problem solve on their own. Take some time to look at Rene and Laura’s presentation and get a better understanding of Montessori. Click here to view PowerPoint.
