OBSERVATION

 

Observation skills are essential to the Montessori classroom teacher.  The student will receive an overview of observation and documentation techniques.  The student will do a number of documented observations in different settings.  Observation opportunities are designed for the student to focus on various elements of the classroom and to develop the ability to observe the developmental processes within individual children and to assess their needs according to Montessori principles.  As a Montessori teacher, one of the most basic skills must be the objective, careful observation of each child.   The observations include not only the materials used by the children, but the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of each individual child.
