This is a great video, from the perspective of a Montessori Parent. It compares conventional school with Montessori, beginning with the spirit of the child. A friend of mine posted this video asking, what are we doing to light the eyes of the conventionally schooled child? Well, for me- that's what I'm doing here. My children are conventionally schooled, and I use Montessori Materials and Philosophy in our home. They are inquisitive, empathetic, and imaginative children. As Mothers of conventionally schooled children, our job is to help them by following the child.
