The Montessori Brainstorming Tour
Join us for a special event on November 1, from 6-8 pm, with guest speakers Dr. Laura Flores Shaw, lead editor, writer, and founder of White Paper Press, and Dr. Steven Hughes, pediatric neuropsychologist and Director of the Center for Research on Developmental Education. They will discuss Montessori for All Brain Types and Surviving School Testing: Montessori’s Unique Outcomes. To help children develop the wide range of human capabilities necessary for a successful and happy life in a rapidly changing society and economy, schools cannot solely focus on “thinking” about content. Instead, schools need a different educational framework—one that is embodied and based on how the brain actually develops. The Brainstorming Tour presents such a framework and the research that indirectly supports it. Visit RSVP.tmaoc.com for more information and to sign up. Spots are limited!
