Troubleshoot issues through observation

In your career, you will run across children that seem to defy understanding. However, it is your calling and responsibility to seek that understanding and help the child forward on his path to development. Observation will be the key methodology that you will use on this quest. In this session, we will learn how observation is at the heart of the Montessori pedagogy and how it can be used to troubleshoot many individual issues that will arise in your classroom daily.
