More Montessori in Practice
This second volume of articles by Montessori sage Lakshmi Kripalani presents more timely topics for today's Montessorians. What did Maria Montessori expect of her followers? How important are multi-age groupings? Do Montessori's writings offer today's teachers any insights into testing requirements? You'll find answers to these and other contemporary questions, enlivened by real-life stories and personal insights. This collection of Kripalani's articles from the Public School Montessorian (1999-2009) illuminates the maturing of the U.S. Montessori movement (with an account of the AMS-AMI split in 1962), speaks frankly of the challenges faced by today's Montessori teachers, and celebrates the unlimited potential of children. Kripalani was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement award from AMS in 2010. Paperback, 185 pages. Teacher, Montessori directress and teacher-trainer, consultant, lecturer, columnist, lifetime MENSA member, and poet, Lakshmi Kripalani's unique experience with Montessori education in a variety of settings and her work with Dr. Montessori (and Montessori's son Mario) led Kripalani to open the Montessori Center of New Jersey teacher-training center in 1966. A member of AMI, AMS, and NAMTA, Kripalani received a Lifetime Achievement award from AMS in 2010, the most recent of many recognitions for her work within and for the Montessori community.
