      • AZTECA - Grand Lake Montessori Performing Arts Camp 2014


        from Helen Campbell Added 51 1 0

        The Performing Arts Week was first started in 1981 when the composer of our first children’s operas, Sanford Jones, came to Oakland to train Montessori teachers in music experiences for children. Teachers and students came from Concord, Walnut Creek, Marin County, San Francisco and Oakland for a 2-week seminar hosted by Grand Lake Montessori (formerly known as Casa dei Bambini). Teachers performed two operas written for children’s voices, “Persephone” based on the Greek myth and “The Happy Prince” based on a story by Oscar Wilde. The casts were a mixture of GLM staff, Bay Area students and Montessori teachers. Ten years passed and GLM grew from one classroom to five, and started an elementary class. In 1991 GLM was invited to do a children’s opera with another Montessori school in San Luis Obispo. The parents of the San Luis Obispo school hosted Casa elementary children in their homes for a week, and our joint production of “Pearl” was a great success. In 1992 GLM hosted “Opera Week” in Oakland. We invited students from Park Day, Berkeley Montessori and other schools to join us. Each year the word-of-mouth of the amazing Children’s Performing Arts Week has grown. What is truly remarkable is the elasticity and absorbent capabilities of children 6 to 12 year olds. The entire opera libretto, words and music, plus dance solos and acting are given to the children in two weeks. The children are immersed in the theater experience and learn because of the extraordinary teaching of our team of professionals. The parents work in the months ahead on costumes and scenery. GLM welcomes new opera participants as well as returning alumni. The Camp is open to any child 6 to 12 and there are special roles for GLM 5 year olds (students at GLM only) who are signed up for the camp during opera week.

            • Fueling the Flame Within: Montessori Education and the Development of the Self


              from Steve Hughes Added 2,067 5 0

              Keynote presentation at the 2013 American Montessori Society Conference. Download a PDF of the slides from http://tinyurl.com/HughesAMS2013Keynote. Beginning as a tiny spark, the light that shines within a child will, over time, grow to become a steady, strong flame if he or she experiences an environment that recognizes, respects, and fuels it. What are the requisite features of such an environment? What makes Montessori education so effective in "fueling the flame" of each child's unique identity? Part of Dr. Montessori's genius was her understanding that human development requires different experiences at different stages of development. In this lecture, Dr. Steve Hughes will explore how the environments provided at each plane of Montessori education support the formation of essential aspects of cognitive capabilities known as "executive functions." These capabilities are necessary for the creation of curious, creative, moral, inspired, and inspiring adults—people in whom the light of identity burns bright and warm.

                    from Steve Hughes Added 1,023 3 0

                    Presented at the Montessori in Asia conference on Sunday, August 10, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan. PDF of slides available at http://tinyurl.com/HughesLectureResources. As Montessori showed us, the conditions necessary to meet the challenges of a growing mind (and body) require distinctly different conditions across the planes of development. In the first plane, the child constructs an advanced "central processor" through distinctly cognitive-developmental experiences. During the second plane, his or her mind learns to solve more complex problems and engage in further self-guided discovery of the wider world around them. The Montessori child entering an adolescent community has an entirely new set of emotional, social (and continuing cognitive!) tasks ahead. This lectures reviews the developmental tasks of adolescence, and shows how the Montessori adolescent community both continues and expands the work done in earlier planes, as he or she refines core values and unique contribution to the world.
