Members of the International Montessori Council receive Montessori Leadership, a quarterly journal, aimed at Montessori educators, administrators, teacher trainers, board members, and parent leaders. It has been praised as the most useful journal of its kind in the Montessori community.
Montessori Leadership focuses on current "best practices" in Montessori curriculum and instruction, classroom management, the prepared environment, organizational leadership, school development, and teacher training. Articles are well researched, yet easily readable. The emphasis is on practical applications of things that are working in classrooms and schools around the world. New ideas will be examined in relation to the fundamentals of Montessori practice.
Each issue explores a wide-range of topics, such as retaining your kindergarten and elementary students; peace education and character development; techniques for daily renewal; prepared environments that foster calmness, concentration, and cooperation; board development; the science of school expansion; fund raising; working with challenging children, parents, teachers, and boards; reestablishing harmony, trust, and teamwork; curriculum development; children and computers; and specific exploration of ideas such as new Practical Life and Sensorial exercises for 21st Century children.
A number of issues are open for public view. IMC Members can access more past issues and articles by logging in with their member username and password.
