    Dive into ecoliteracy and its relationship to the Cosmic Curriculum with Kelly Johnson and learn fun ways to weave more nature and creativity into your classroom.

    1.5 CPDs, Run time: 40:59

    As Montessori teachers, we know firsthand in a hyper-stimulated, instantly gratified world, guiding an elementary age child toward their Cosmic Task can seem overwhelming on the best days. Nevertheless, by drawing on humans’ innate possibilities of creativity, along with our biological desire for connection and love of our natural world, the Montessori Cosmic Curriculum provides our students (and us) a map for the journey.

    In this workshop, beyond clarifying what terms like ecoliteracy mean, you’ll learn how, and why, intentionally amplifying aspects of ecoliteracy, mindful focus, creativity, and nature connection – already inherent within the Cosmic Curriculum – is fun, plus helps students (and us) embrace our cosmic tasks and build an equitable future for life on Earth. You’ll come away with a glimpse into the exciting science behind ecological intelligence and creativity and gain a practical understanding of fun ways to apply these concepts.

    Never fear, you don’t need an existing green thumb to joyfully teach for ecoliteracy - with just a few accents, it’s easy to weave more nature and creativity into your classroom!

    Presented by Kelly Johnson, BFA, MA, AMS 6-9, she/her, Timucuan lands, Neptune Beach Florida; Tuscarora, Monacan, and Powhatan lands, Nelson and Richmond, Virginia. Kelly seeks to guide humans of all ages to reconnect with their natural world. An artist, author, nature journaling guide, Montessorian, and children's garden facilitator, Kelly brings a lifetime of artistic expression, academic exploration, and hands-on gardening experience to each of her endeavors.

    Presented by Biff Maier, this video will explore how to kindle students’ imaginations, stimulating their capacity for investigation, work, and conceptual understanding.

    1.5 CPDs, Run time: 44:11

    Dr. Montessori envisioned schools where learning was so compelling children would use it to build their souls. However, in our search for excellence, rigor, and accountability, we sometimes forget that learning should be fun. This workshop will explore how to kindle students’ imaginations, stimulating their capacity for investigation, work, and conceptual understanding. You will be guided to examine the nature of children’s humor, find playful, silly ways to capture their attention, and, as a result, be able to affect serious, deliberate learning.

    In this workshop, hear from 3 Montessorians who support families through pregnancy, birth, and newborn symbiosis. Learn techniques for offering support, not only within our current communities, but also to those without access to high-quality support.

    1.5 CPDs, Run time: 1:15:01

    Long before there were Infant & Toddler programs, Montessori infant specialists went into homes to support mothers before and after they gave birth. Just as the work of an older child is respected in a Montessori environment, the work of the mother and baby is to also be observed, understood, and respected. Through observation, unnecessary intervention and interruption can be avoided, and the best possible environment can be provided. In this workshop, hear from 3 Montessorians who support families through pregnancy, birth, and newborn symbiosis. Learn techniques for offering support, not only within our current communities, but also to those without access to high-quality support.

    1.5 CPDs, Run time 51:07

    The new story of the universe has the power to transform adolescents and the world they will soon inherit.  While we know that Montessori had a cosmic vision for education, others like Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, and David Christian have also recognized the singular power of the universe story to orient adolescents (and adults) to the world in which they live.  In this video presentation, learn how to build the secondary curriculum around the new story of the universe to generate interest, provide meaningful context for every academic discipline, and serve the ultimate aim of Montessori education: a New World for a New Human.
