Cosmic Education Program for Parents
November 9, 2009Give your primary and elementary parents a program on the Cosmic Education Curriculum. Your primary parents will then better know what's up ahead if they keep their child in the school and elementary parents will better understand this curriculum that serves as the foundation for the entire elementary level.
Hi Jennifer - just forwarding this link to our Monthly e-newsletter that features a reference to your wonderful presentations here at RMS...and a photo! Thank you again for being here with us in Richmond. You were a hit. I believe your presentation to parents on Maria Montessori's contributions to science education and the young child were so helpful to put her work in education in perspective. It is often a stretch for adults to understand the Montessori focus on "cosmic education" and the reasons for mastering the universe through the great stories. You brought it to life for our students and the parents who were fortunate enough to be swept away by your storytelling!

Have a great weekend!
Decades before there were images of earth from space and scientists came to a consensus about the Big Bang model, Maria Montessori and her son Mario began to develop the Cosmic Education Curriculum for the elementary level.
At the invitation of the Theosophical Society, they were training teachers in India when WWII broke out and because they were citizens of Italy, "enemy aliens", they were put under house arrest by the British government for the duration of the War. A very productive development indeed it turned out to be because "internment" forced them into a "retirement" that enabled them to develop this curriculum which is now the foundation for the entire Montessori elementary curriculum.

I recently gave a program for parents at the Richmond Montessori school in Richmond, Virginia.
