Yes, You Can Teach It All: Managing the Elementary Montessori Curriculum

This will be the tenth cohort of this course, which seems to meet a real need for many elementary guides. We will begin on January 10th, 2021.

There is no one time when you must be online live. The work will unfold week-by-week. Optional discussions will be offered a few times during the course.

To many elementary Montessori guides, the instructional process is intimidating, even baffling. The curriculum seems daunting and intellectually challenging, even for the adult. This course will help you to address these challenges and gain new confidence.
