Fostering Montessori Preparedness for Global Citizenship
November 13-16, 2014, Hotel Deca, Seattle, WA
A global citizen identifies as being part of an emerging world community and contributes to building that world community. How do our Montessori communities nurture this perception and shared identity? We begin with geography in the Children’s House, go through the vastness and diversity of human culture in the elementary, and then continue with the collaborative work of the adolescent community. Lynne Lawrence will address how Montessori prepares teachers for the cultivation of global citizens and how this identity adds a layer of responsibility to help shape who we are.
