Summary from the back of the book:
“In The Advanced Montessori Method – I, previously entitled Spontaneous Activity in Education, Maria Montessori presents her educational philosophy and methods as they relate to children from the ages of seven to eleven years. Dr. Montessori asserted that nothing should be imposed on the child. Indeed, her aim throughout was to appeal to the child’s curiosity and to reveal ‘the immense potentiality of the child’ which, she argued, was a tremendous energy which had, to a large extent, been ignored. In this volume, Dr. Montessori surveys the child’s psychical health, freedom and spirit, and considers such phenomena as intelligence, attention, imagination and will.”
