Networking: Faith-Based Montessori Environments
Friday, March 13 | 08:30 AM - 09:30 AM
Guided Networking Session
Some Montessori environments that integrate religious traditions into their curriculum and congregations that use the Montessori Method for religious formation can share similar challenges, like developing appropriate materials to represent traditions, integrating materials from a religious tradition into classrooms, or exploring various world religions. This is an opportunity to share challenges and solutions, find new resources, and meet one another. All are welcome, with or without experience in faith-based Montessori environments. Bring your questions—and your coffee!
