* Recheck/refresh this schedule on Saturday morning to see what rooms your desired sessions are in. We continue to change room assignments based on the level of interest in each session.

* Use one seat and move to the middle. Every seat will be used in the auditorium and likely in many breakout sessions as well. Please allow as many to sit as possible by using one seat and moving to the middle of a row of seats so others may sit down without climbing over you.

* Be patient. No matter how hard we try, history tells us that some breakout sessions will end up being standing room only for fill up completely.  Please understand that we are trying our very best to make this a productive and enjoyable learning opportunity for you and as many of your fellow Montessorians as possible. Your patience will help the most people receive the most benefit from this conference.

Moral Progress through Competition

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This presentation will consider the importance of competition, its impact on children, and the role of the adult. Competition is aligned with the social development happening with elementary children and it can be their focus. We must teach them to compete with grace and courtesy. When we improve how children compete then we will improve our future.
