Abstract/Notes: Chapter two presents a biography of Maria Montessori and describes the key elements in her method when George, Naumburg, Pyle, and Parkhurst were students in her training courses. By 1910, Montessori had constructed the core features of her educational theory, known as the Montessori Method. Her educational theory was based on her medical education at the University of Rome, her work with children with mental disabilities, her intensive reading of the pioneer special education educators, Itard and Sequin, pedagogical anthropology and her first school, the Casa dei Bambini, in 1908, in Rome’s impoverished San Lorenzo district. Montessori’s view of the child holistically encompassed physical, sensory, muscular, social, intellectual, and moral development. All children, she believed, like all people, shared a universal human nature which led to common modes of development. Focusing on early childhood education, ages three to six, Montessori’s key principles were: children need liberty to fulfill their inner need to develop fully through their own self-, or auto-education; their self-education is optimal in a prepared structured learning environment with accessible didactic apparatus and material which they are free to choose and work out their own self- development; the first level of instruction develops sensory, muscular, and practical skills which lead to higher level cognitive, cultural, and literary skills. Montessori was recognized as an educational innovator in Europe but not widely known in the United States. George, Naumburg, Pyle, and Parkhurst played significant roles in introducing Montessori to Americans and in implementing the Montessori Method in the United States.
