Educa invites you to its webinar

Montessori Theory of Human Tendencies by Cathy Wilson, MANZ

About this webinar

In the previous Montessori webinar Cathy Wilson, Executive Officer for Montessori Aotearoa New Zealand (MANZ), covered two very important theory aspects of the Montessori philosophy - the Absorbent Mind and Sensitive Periods.

In this webinar Cathy will cover another Montessori theory aspect - Human Tendencies, explaining what they are and how they work with the Absorbent Mind and Sensitive Periods.

After years of careful observation, Maria Montessori was able to identify eleven important tendencies, such as exploration, orientation and order. These are called Human Tendencies and they compel human beings to construct and refine the world around them.

Cathy will run through the 11 human tendencies -- orientation, order, exploration, repetition, work, activity, communication, manipulation, exactness, perfection and abstraction. And she will describe a prepared environment, i.e., the Montessori classroom with its carefully chosen and beautifully arranged materials that is built around these tendencies. 

Note, this follows on from Cathy's webinar last year on two important theory aspects of the Montessori philosophy - the Absorbent Mind and Sensitive Periods.
