Dear group I have an interview with a Montessori school as an art
consultant/teacher. I am not sure exactly what the position is but
do know they are looking at the art aspect of my lessons. I want to
know if
any of you are familiar with teaching art in a Montessori school. I
know someone in the group wrote about this awhile ago, but I can't
remember who. Any tips, advice, etc. would be appreciated. I do have
a Montessori
web site and also remember reading about Maria Montessori in school,
I have also been researching the info. about "Reggio Emilia", and
wonder if anyone else would like to converse with me on that,
privately. I have found quite a lot about it including articles and
web sites.
Specifically is Montessori art all/only process oriented? I don't
want to go in and bring the wrong thing, I know it is through the
child's own development and self discovery.
