Với những ai có quan tâm một chút về giáo dục sẽ không xa lạ khi nghe tên Montessori. Một trường mẫu giáo nào gắn nhãn Montessori đều nhận được sự quan tâm của nhiều phụ huynh và giáo viên (còn tổ chức, giáo dục có đúng như Montessori thật hay không thì không ai kiểm chứng). Mình cũng không là ngoại lệ.
Những quyển sách viết về phương pháp giáo dục Montessori bán khá nhiều ở Việt Nam. Tuy nhiên, từ kinh nghiệm đọc sách, mình ưu tiên chỉ đọc những quyển sách nào do chính bà Maria Montessori viết.

La pedagogía Montessori debería ser, de conocimiento general. Este libro deje con una gran reflexión hacía como vemos, tratamos y concebimos a los niños. Y su desarrollo. Los niños son tan capaces, pero el adulto interfiere sin darse cuenta en este proceso. Siempre he Sido una defensora de los niños. Me alegra haber conocido este libro y la filosofía Montessori, porque ahora entiendo muchas más cosas hacerca de la infancia y el desarrollo de los niños; como uno de adulto puede guiarlos, y eso si ...more

أجزم أنه الكتاب الأول غير الأكاديمي الذي اقرأه في مجال التربية والطفولة بعد سنوات من دراستي الجامعية والتي درست فيها عدد لا يأس به من مواد علم النفس والتربية، ولذلك شعرت أنّ الكتاب يحوي نظريات تربوية مُهمة بأسلوب مُختصر جداً ويحتاج لبعض التفصيل. عموماً أعتبره مرجع جيد للآباء والأمهات والعاملين في قطاع التعليم.

"The will of man is not expressed in disorder or violence; that is the mark of suffering." Marshal Rosenberg would totally agree.

"If a child carries out the will of a teacher because he is afraid or because his affection is exploited, he has no will, and obedience that is secured by suppression of the will is truly oppression."

"The real aim of all children was revealed as constancy in work and spontaneity in choice of work, without guidance of teachers. Following some inner guide, they occupied

Education For A New World
This is the book which has introduced me to the world of Dr. Montessori's writings. Every parent and teacher, for that matter every individual should read this book so as to understand how human psychology is built right from the formative years. This book especially discusses about a child's mental and physical growth in the first 6 years of life. It even discusses the embryonic development that takes place before the child comes out to this world.

This book gives an overview of the expectations, capabilities and a possible method that helps the children achieve the potentialities of children through the first six years of their life. The book is easy to read and Dr. Montessori talks about her own method which she evolved through observation. The amount of thought and analysis that she went through to evolve the method is mind-blowing. She stumbled upon the field of Education - thanks to discriminations in the Science and medical field - a ...more

E' un libro illuminante specialmente negli ultimi capitoli, ma non c'è uno straccio di bibliografia, nemmeno per i suoi colleghi belghi che non nomina neanche, e dice cose strampalate ed errate sulla teoria dell'evoluzione di Darwin. ...more

This book, written later in Montessori's life, reads like a grand synopsis of her life's work. It highlights much of the stronger material from previous books, the overarching ideas that give glue to her philosophy of education. I love that she got all Cosmic after her time in India; it's such a perfect way to tie all of her thoughts and methods to a truly holy cause--the cause of humanity and world peace.

The idea of "evolution" plays a strong role in the philosophy of this book. Evolution, and

“Scientific observation then has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.” 42 likes
