“There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and for the individuals within it, which comes through experience of freedom within the community.” ~ Dr Maria Montessori

The Book

Positive Discipline is designed to help young people become responsible, respectful, and resourceful members of their classroom communities. In this book, Chip DeLorenzo and Jane Nelsen
bring together Montessori and Positive Discipline for the first time,
offering a methodology for addressing behavior in the classroom
that is consistent with the core Montessori belief of respect for the child. Nelsen and DeLorenzo argue that preparing the social-
emotional environment is just as important—and as critical to normalization—as preparing the physical environment, and provide
tips for creating that environment, one that engenders cooperation,
contribution, and mutual respect.  You’ll learn how to:

• effectively set and maintain limits with children
• foster children’s self-regulation and responsibility
• encourage open communication with your students
• help children attain a sense of belonging and significance
• And much more!
