Montessori teaching method

Montessori schools have an unusual and progressive approach to teaching. Teachers rarely stand at the front of the classroom or deliver lectures to the whole class. Instead, they mostly roam around the classroom, observe students, and provide guidance when necessary.

The role of the teacher is to be more of a guide or mentor than an instructor. Sometimes teachers provide short lessons to individual or small groups of students. They also help them connect them with meaningful work.

Teachers try, though, to minimize intervention. It’s thought to be counter-productive to interrupt students who are in the middle of an engaging task. It’s also believed that students learn more effectively from each other than from teachers. And in fact, there is research to support this.
