For more than a century, Montessori educators, parents of Montessori children and Montessori children themselves have asserted that, “Montessori works!” However, why Montessori works and what it does (and whether it fully lives up to its billing) remain something of a mystery for many. Steve Hughes explains why there need be no mystery: Using the back drop of neuroscience, Dr. Hughes illustrates how Montessori environments-- and student activity within those environments -- foster the development of complex neural pathways, literally building the architecture of the brain.
Light refreshments and tours of Crossway’s Montessori environments will take place at 6:00 p.m. Questions about this event: Call Crossway Community at (301) 929-2505
