The Montessori teacher is fortunate to be working within a pedagogy that provides a stable, coherent and consistent set of practices, materials and methods. Montessori pedagogy provides a map and signposts along with a shared language that has a strong explanatory power. Nevertheless aspects of classroom work such as spelling, grammar, reading and writing can, at times, become sources of anxiety for Montessori teachers and for children. During this workshop Peter invites the Montessori 6-12 teacher to take a closer look at spelling with the aim of assisting teachers to renew the connection between language exploration in Cosmic Education and the communal and cultural contexts that support it.
