In November of 2010, The Association Montessori Internationale agreed to an evolving relationship with the NAMTA Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies. Together with the Scientific Pedagogical Group (formally Committee), NAMTA will contribute selectively to the AMI body of Montessori pedagogy, allowing for the preservation and propagation of adolescent research and practice within the context of AMI-approved teacher education. The NAMTA Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies will be renamed The AMI Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies, recognizing NAMTA’s program as the current AMI adolescent pedagogical offering. 

 

The AMI Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies builds an integrated holistic view of the Montessori adolescent in relation to Montessori psychology, methodology, and philosophy.  Content is presented within the context of Montessori’s educational syllabus. Participants can shape their specialized backgrounds (in math, science, humanities) as part of a total Montessori vision, allowing them to design an adolescent program that addresses their unique combinations of students, faculty, site, and administration at their schools. AMI Montessori training in early childhood or elementary levels will enhance the orientation experience, but is not a prerequisite.
