2-Week course

Normalization in the Classroom 

Normalization is something that spontaneously happens when children are given meaningful work to do. When a child becomes what we call “normalized,” we begin to see beneficial changes leading to several major characteristics. Learn how to guide the children in your classroom to this peace.

You will learn: 

  • What Normalization means in Montessori 
  • The essential factors that lead to Normalization 
  • How to prepare an environment that leads the child to Normalization 
  • How to fine-tune your power of observation

Course Description

If you feel like you are in a constant state of reactive management in your classroom, it is very likely that the children are not reaching the state of Normalization. These qualities of Normalization reveal themselves when we prepare the environment and provide freedom of choice. No teacher “makes” the child work. Children love the work that corresponds to their internal development, and it is our job to provide that environment. Enjoy more calm in your classroom when you cultivate an environment for Normalization!
