Recommended Readings

Montessori Madness! – Trevor Eissler

Dr. Lillard has made a major contribution with this scientific exploration of how the Montessori model best prepares children to succeed in school and later life. Dr. Lillard shows how ongoing brain research and studies about child development support the validity and effectiveness of the Montessori approach.

Montessori: The Science Behind The Genius

Dr. Lillard has made a major contribution with this scientific exploration of how the Montessori model best prepares children to succeed in school and later life. Dr. Lillard shows how ongoing brain research and studies about child development support the validity and effectiveness of the Montessori approach.

Montessori Today

Montessori Today is a response to the lay person’s need for clear, accurate information on the Montessori programmes for the different age groupings and the theory that underlies them. Dr. Paul Polk Lillard presents Montessori as a compelling alternative to the mainstream educational system and the malaise students often experience in today’s crisis-ridden schools.

Understanding the Human Being: The Importance of the First Three Years of Life

Dr. Montanaro addresses prenatal life, symbiosis, breastfeeding and weaning, brain development and the absorbent mind, independence, language development, and the developmental crises of the first three years.

The Tao of Montessori

Based on the Lao-tzu’s writings, collected as the Tao Te Ching. It consists of eighty-one thoughts meant to remind rather than direct, and to show the way toward natural harmony in the worlds around and within us. The Tao of Montessori is a gift from one teacher to all teachers, as well as to the parents of the children who are “the tiny miracles that unfold every day in our classrooms.”

Punished by Rewards

Drawing from hundreds of studies, Kohn demonstrates that people actually do inferior work when they are enticed with money, grades, or other incentives. Programmes that use rewards to change people’s behavior are similarly ineffective over the long run. Promising goodies to children for good behavior can never produce anything more than temporary obedience

Out of Our Minds: Learning To Be Creative

There is a paradox. Most children think they’re highly creative: most adults think they’re not. What happens to them as they grow up? Throughout the world, companies and organizations are trying to compete in a world of economic and technological change that is moving faster than ever.

Drive

Most of us believe that the best way to motivate ourselves and others is with external rewards like money—the carrot-and-stick approach. That’s a mistake. The secret to high performance and satisfaction—at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.

Whole New Mind

Lawyers. Accountants. Computer programmers. That’s what our parents encouraged us to become when we grew up. But Mom and Dad were wrong. The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind. The era of “left brain” dominance, and the Information Age that it engendered, are giving way to a new world in which “right brain” qualities-inventiveness, empathy, meaning-predominate.
