Montessori Elementary: Three Essential Tools

Straight from AMI Training:

The three tools Dr. Montessori suggested we use to develop freedom and responsibility in the elementary children are:
1.       The public school curriculum,
2.      Individual work journals,
3.       Individual weekly meetings between the teacher and each child <------ THIS is the work plan!!!! Not a checklist ;)
