This volume explores the main aspects of Maria Montessori’s theory of education, focusing primarily on the learning materials that are so critical to carrying out her philosophy. In four detailed essays and a number of short, explanatory texts, the book explores: the architectural and aesthetic importance of Montessori classrooms; the effect they had on the lives of children in pre-World War II Germany; how the Montessori method blended with the culture and politics of that era; and how it is employed in schools today. The book features a brief biography of Maria Montessori and original photographs of active children in the the first Montessori schools in Germany, Austria and America.
