Montessori Education Versus Traditional Education

The goal of both Montessori and traditional education is the same: to provide learning experiences for the child.  The biggest differences lie in the kind of learning experiences a school provides and the methods they use to accomplish this goal. Below is the differences of a Montessori school classroom versus a Traditional school classroom.

Montessori Classroom 

Emphasis on: cognitive and social development

Teacher: has unobtrusive role in classroom

Discipline: environment and method encourage self-discipline and encouraging the “whole child”.

Method: mainly individual instruction, mixed age grouping, grouping encourages children to teach and help each other.

Child’s freedom : chooses work, discovers own ideas from self teaching tasks, works as long as they wish on a chosen project, sets own learning pace, spots own errors from Montessori material, reinforces own learning by repetition of work and internal feelings of success, encouraging child to learn respect of self, environment and their friends around them.

The classroom: multi-sensory materials for physical exploration, child size furniture so a child can have easy access to tasks without asking, child can work where they choose, move around at will without disrupting work of others.

Traditional Classroom

Emphasis on: social development

Teacher: is center of classroom

Discipline: teacher acts as primary enforcer of discipline

Method: group and individual instruction, same age grouping, most teaching done by teacher, curriculum structured for child through age

Child’s freedom: guided to ideas by teacher, generally allotted specific time for work, if work is corrected, errors usually pointed out by teacher, learning is reinforced externally by repetition and rewards

The classroom: set up with task stations, fewer material for sensory development, material brought out when being used, encourages a child to participate in groups. Classrooms students to teacher ratio is rising, which challenges each child to focus on the teachers ideas in order to learn.
