Abstract

[Anne George, Adelia Pyle, Margaret Naumburg and Helen Parkhurst were all trained as directresses by Maria Montessori. George, Montessori’s first American student, took the course in 1910; Pyle and Naumburg were among the ninety students in Montessori’s First International Training Course in 1913; Parkhurst, one of eighty students, completed the Second International Training Course in 1914. Their training established their credentials in American Montessori education. Their role in the early history of the Montessori movement is largely an extension of and implementation of what they learned in the course. The training course consisted of lectures and clinical observations of Montessori classes. Montessori lectured on: (1) applying science to education; (2) the correct method of observing children; (3) using empirical techniques to render anthropological and clinical information into replicable and usable educational practices; (4) designing and using didactic apparatus and materials to develop children’s skills and abilities at crucial sensitive periods in their development. And (5) replicating the Montessori classroom, the prepared educational environment. After completing the course, George, Parkhurst and Naumburg faced the challenge of transporting and recreating the Montessori Method in the United States.]
