Montessori DVDs for Staff Training
Elementary 2 Math Demonstrations is a set of four DVDs that provide step-by-step demonstrations of over 130 upper elementary math presentations. Designed to provide a refresher when you have not presented a material recently or are teaching math after an absence. These DVDs are produced by Paulyne Holten-Sinder, former AMS president and head-of-school for over 25 years during which she taught 9-12 classes.
The below list is of all the demonstrations currently completed. The numbers are drawn from the AMS list created for the AMS/MRX research project.
Montessori Leadership, Visions and Strategies was created with the intention of offering Montessori school administrators information and resources which will support effective leadership of schools from infant-toddler through high school, both public and private. Sixty short videos featuring leading Montessorians including Anna Perry of the Seton Montessori Institute and Marta Donahoe of the Cincinnati Montessori Secondary Teacher Education Program offer wisdom drawn from many years leading Montessori programs. The kit’s contents include many tools for staff development, some perspectives on how to approach some of the key issues administrator’s face and dozens of forms, handbooks, legal issues, mission statements, and other samples of documents every administrator must have and understand.
This program does not replace a certified Montessori leadership training program.
The High Performance Montessori Assistant Multimedia Training Package provides you with a comprehensive self teaching program that covers everything a new assistant needs to know. The package includes two DVDs (Becoming a High Performance Montessori Assistant and An Introduction to Montessori Philosophy and Materials - also sold separately), and the Assistant’s Notes CD that allows you to print out specialized forms that serve both as a note-taking tool for the new assistant and an evaluation tool for you.
In use by over 600 schools!
