About this webinar
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.
In this free webinar, Cathy Wilson, Executive Officer for Montessori Aotearoa New Zealand will cover this aspect of Montessori theory, namely Human Tendencies.
In Montessori philosophy, they are the key to understanding how and why a Montessori classroom calls out to the very soul of the child.
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.
