An Emphasis on Peace
Peace education is implicit in the Montessori curriculum and its materials. An emphasis on peace is cultivated in the classrooms by combining the actual experience of peace with hands-on peace-making skills, exercises in mindfulness and intellectual academic activities leading to the understanding of peace. Lessons in grace and courtesy, use of a Peace Table in Children’s House and conflict resolution tactics in the Elementary grades give children concrete ways to practice and model peace among themselves. Can we make a better world? You betcha!
