Perhaps your place loves having you there. It misses you when you are away and in its secret way rejoices when you return. Could it be possible that a landscape might have a deep friendship with you? That it could sense your presence and feel the care you extend toward it?
We offer you the opportunity to . . .
Learn the Way You Teach
Successful athletes and artists know it: the most effective preparation has you practice just as you plan to perform!
Teaching with these materials is different! It requires more of the teacher than merely having an abstract understanding of the underlying academic principle. The teacher must fully understand the concrete experience and how it contributes to the child’s overall understanding. Nothing better prepares the teacher than manipulating these didactic materials himself as he practices delivering lessons to students.
“Brick and Mortar” training allows adult students to experience the materials just as their children will in the classroom, under the watchful eye of a Master Montessorian.
Discover through Multi-Sensorial Experiences
Your brain knows it: the more senses that are involved in an experience, the more memorable it is!
“Brick and Mortar” training is a multi-sensory experience. It is a social, physiological encounter utilizing, not only manipulative materials, but also movement, discussion, collaboration, and creation. It engages both focused attention and peripheral perception of lessons and peers, as well as tactile (touch) and sometimes gustatory (taste) experience! These rich encounters enhance the learning experience as much for adults as for children.
Gain Immediate Feedback from Instructors and Peers
Your head knows it: almost nothing beats immediate feedback from caring, knowledgeable mentors.
Most things in life are not self-correcting; learning effective teaching techniques is among those that benefit from repeated cycles of instruction, experimentation and practice, and feedback.
“Brick and Mortar” training places you in a collaborative learning environment with highly trained, caring instructors. This allows you to give and receive immediate feedback from peers and from Master Montessori Educators, shaping your lesson delivery as well as your paradigms about how children learn.
Create Community: Life-long Relationships and Networks
Your heart knows it: shared experiences bond us to one another.
