Summary from the back of the book:
“Even in teaching the older child, ages seven to eleven, Maria Montessori believed in the need to create intellectually stimulating materials to engage the mind of the growing child. Designed to “educate the senses,” the Montessori materials emphasize intrinsic motivation and harness the child’s powers of observation and judgment and his or her ability to think creatively.
The Advanced Montessori Method, Volume 2, formerly known as The Montessori Elementary Material, introduces the reader to the materials and techniques Dr. Montessori devised for teaching older children. In seven separate sections she applies her unique materials to the teaching of grammar, reading, arithmetic, geometry, art, music, and poetic metrics. Among the materials illustrated are her designs for indicating the intervals of the musical scale, her hollow geometric solids, her bead number cubes built into a tower, and her grammar boxes. The book shows how these materials speak directly to the child’s curiosity and lead her or him step by step to self-mastery of the fundamentals of elementary school learning.”
