Diversity Series: How the Montessori Approach enriches learning

Find a list of schools

As part of our Dialogue Diversity Series, we've been highlighting how schools and classrooms approach and encourage diversity. Here Pat Gere delves into the reasons why the Montessori pedagogy provides a platform for students of many ages to explore and learn about diversity in the world in and outside of their classroom.


Diversity and Montessori

Illustration by Dave Cutler

Many aspects of Montessori pedagogy support diversity within the classroom and respect for diversity beyond the class.

The Benefits of Multi-Age Classes 

Multi-age classes are a beginning. Most Montessori classes have three ages or grades grouped together within an environment that contains activities and materials that will meet the needs of the youngest to the oldest (Six to nine-year-olds are together in one class, nine to 12-year-olds in another, etc.). One-third of the class is new to the class each year; one-third has had a year's experience and the third-year students are experienced veterans. This age range automatically creates a diverse community since different ages, ability levels and years of experience are always present. Older more experienced students have the opportunity to assist and mentor younger students. Younger students learn from their older, more experienced classmates. Everyone is more comfortable with being who they are, since it is clear everyone is different. When students stay in the class for three years, they also have the experience of growing into their leadership roles and recognize that they are on a journey, as is everyone else; there is no status quo.

How Montessori Students Are Taught and Encouraged to Learn Diversity in the Classroom

Learning in a Montessori class occurs by individual students or small groups using materials that allow them to work independently of the teacher. The exercises are chosen not only for curriculum reasons but for their ability to engage the students. Students may choose what to work on at any given time (within reason) and are therefore more likely to become engaged in that activity (to be in "flow," to reference Dr. Csikszentmihalyi). Since they work independently of the teacher, there is a great diversity of work going on at any one time.

The teacher guides a student's work by giving presentations that demonstrate how to use the activities. The student's learning takes place by doing the activity and the teacher assesses the work by observing the student's activity. Students naturally choose work that meets their individual ability level and their human desire to be challenged. Thus, a broad spectrum of academic abilities can be taught together in the same class, from the academically gifted to those with significant learning challenges. The broad range of activities that take place increase each student's experience of, and respect for, diversity.

Exploring Diversity By Focusing on the Whole World

The elementary Montessori curriculum also supports an understanding of the diversity of the world, both natural and human. Instead of beginning with a particular case, such as a student's hometown, the curriculum builds on elementary students' natural imaginative powers and begins with stories that explore how our world and its diversity have developed and are continuing to develop. These stories create a framework of information onto which students add further, more detailed information garnered from more specific lessons and from their own individual explorations and research.

Students explore the diversity of the physical world through the story of the development of the universe leading to studies of galaxies, stars, our solar system and finally our planet Earth. This leads to explorations of the work of heat, wind, water, etc. in creating the diversity of environments on the earth. Students study the story of the development of life on the Earth through geologic timelines which lead to an understanding of the diversity of life on Earth. Thus introduced to the five kingdoms of living organisms, they can explore the development of the internal systems of respiration, reproduction, etc. Students study the development of human life, from early humans through the great civilizations to the cultures that populate our world today. They use an exercise called the "Fundamental Needs of Humans," which identifies our physical and spiritual needs, as a lens to look at different cultures. This leads to an understanding that the great diversity of human experience and expression has a common origin: our human needs.

Discovering the Roots of Diversity in a Montessori Curriculum

This type of curriculum, one that begins with the overall picture and delves down into the details, helps students understand that diversity underpins our existence. To truly respect and value diversity, students must not only explore it through their academic studies but live with it in their everyday, classroom social interactions. Students who live with diversity are better able to see themselves as an acceptable part of that diversity, and are likely to be intrigued rather than threatened by that which they do not yet understand.
