          If we decided that the purpose of education should be to help every child’s brain reach it’s highest developmental potential, we would have to radically rethink school. The task seems insurmountable, yet this work has already been done. In fact, it was done over a hundred years ago. When examined through the lens of environmental enrichment and brain development, Montessori education presents a radically different–and radically effective–educational approach that may be the best method we’ve got to ensure the optimal cognitive, social, and emotional development of ever child.

            Presented at the American Montessori Society conference in Orlando, FL, on March 14, 2013. Download a PDF of the slides from http://tinyurl.com/HughesAMS2013TES. One of the most important tasks for a Montessori teacher educator is to create a learning environment that allows an adult to have the experience of peace, safety, and freedom that characterizes a strong Montessori classroom. Maria Montessori writes of the need to offer the child a transformed adult. How does one create a transformed adult? Where does the process begin? How does an adult educator maintain a transformative culture in his or her course? Based on a distillation of research on developmental environments and effective school management from the past 30 years, this presentation will lay out a general framework that can assist the Montessori teacher educator in examining his or her own style, and offer insights to guide future teachers in creating cultures of growth and excellence.

                      In this highly visual, rapid-paced and entertaining talk, Dr. Hughes describes how Maria Montessori's brain-based approach to education provides an unparalleled foundation for the development of academic, social, and executive functions critical for advanced problem solving and lifetime success. He shows how Montessori education parallels what we now know about brain development and fosters the development of advanced cognitive functions, social cognition, and such higher-order competencies as empathy and leadership.
