Short Session Description (one line): Montessori might be over one hundred years old, but it still has plenty for modern reformers to learn from- and it could, still, change the world!

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Montessori is a pedagogy and curriculum that naturally creates classroom environments where students experience learning first-hand, with their own hands, as well as learn about peace, social justice and environmental education.  As collaborative and cooperative learning environments Montessori students actively practice respect for each other, the classroom environment and the larger world on a daily basis.  There are many components of a Montessori setting that could be incorporated into other learning environments- both in the classroom and out of the classroom- that would allow learners to gain a deeper understanding of our interdependencies with each other and the planet that inherently leads to positive changes in attitudes and behaviors.  As an educational system set up for infancy through adolescence, Montessori has much to share.
