Synopsis

Synopsis

Charting the progress of twelve children in a real Texas classroom, educator Donna Goertz shows how positive change can occur given the proper environment. In each case she describes a child's transformation from destructive troublemaker to responsible citizen of the classroom community. Readers will learn how to apply Montessori methods to virtually any early elementary environment.

"When children's bullying and ostracizing behavior threatens a school community, we must confront its source. But schools must also nurture variety in personalities, learning styles and personal histories...Cautioning educators on quick-time diagnosis, labeling, medication, and tutoring, Goertz weaves enthralling stories to help school communities accept and embrace all members."
—Patricia Oriti, Montessori Educator & Consultant

"In Donna Goertz's classroom the "problem" child is given value with a candor which continually falls back on positive community values. Engaging work is a catalyst for academic and emotional growth. This is an inspiring vision of challenging classroom dilemmas."
—Debbie McKee Gorence, Behavior Specialist

"Master Montessori teacher Donna Bryant Goertz teaches children compassion, generosity, cooperation, and collaboration by letting life be the curriculum. These stories show how they slowly learn to work and play with each other peacefully. If you have ever loved a child, you will treasure this book."
—Terry Masters, former public school teacher

"Goertz's children embrace two ideas: that serving others in need is paramount, and that needing and accepting help is a gift one child can give to another. This book captures the community of compassion and cooperation at the heart of Montessori education."
—David Kahn, Executive Director, North American Montessori Teachers' Association
