Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian physician, anthropologist, and educator known around the world for her educational philosophy and pedagogy. Her work encourages educational environments tailored to the child where autonomy and independence are encouraged in the contexts of building community and peace education. The Bloomsbury Handbook of Montessori Education showcases the history, pedagogy, global nature of Montessori and current cutting-edge work in the field of Montessori education. Divided into six sections, the Handbook covers the foundations and evolution of the field; Montessori’s key writings; implications for pedagogy; key themes and scientific research; the global reach of Montessori; and contemporary considerations such gender, inclusive education, race and multilingualism. Written by scholars and practitioners based in over 20 countries including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, Kenya, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, the UK and the USA, this the go-to reference work for anyone interested in Montessori education.
