What is Montessori Education ?
Montessori schools are built on the teachings of an early twentieth century psychologist by the name of Montessori. Ms. Montessori opened her first school in 1906 and based her form of education on her work with and observations of needy children. Today, Montessori is popular world wide. Montessori schools are different in many ways from traditional schools. These differences are many but, so are the benefits.

Traditional schools adhere to rules and regulations. Traditional schools have schedules and there is a set time for everything: eating, playing, math, and reading. Children are not given any choice on when and how long they can participate in an activity. Montessori schools believe in allowing the students to choose in how long it takes to explore and learn from an activity. The schedule is fluid with some activities taking longer on some days and shorter amounts of time on another day; depending on the mood and energy of the children in the classroom.

The teacher rules in traditional school settings. The teacher teaches her class and the children sit and listen intently. Children are not allowed to move or talk without first getting the permission of the teacher. The Montessori teacher takes a silent presence in the classroom. The goal here is to present the information to the class and then allow the children to explore the new concept while moving around the room and talking.

Being outdoors is essential in a Montessori school. It is believed that all children need time to play and explore the earth. The Montessori philosophy on this is that, through out doors play, children learn to appreciate the planet while feeding their natural curiosity. This appreciation and curiosity leads to wanting to learn about science and conservation. The fresh air and exercise is vital to a healthy body which lends itself to the…...

...and female education and of male and female schools. To throw obstacles in the way of a complete education is like putting out the eyes, yet women in my time are not given a full chance to reach their potential and obtain a proper education (Ginzberg (2009)). Barnett: As you may know, I was a teacher before I became an activist for Afro-American rights. My life was difficult but I was happy to be educating my people who were so in need. I came home every Friday afternoon, riding the six miles on the back of a big mule. I spent Saturday and Sunday washing and ironing and cooking for the children and went back to my country school on Sunday afternoon (Brainy Quotes (2013)) But then I realized that somebody must show that the Afro-American race is more sinned against than sinning, and it seems to have fallen upon me to do so (Brainy Quotes(2013)). That’s when got into journalism. Walters: Both of you were keenly aware of the oppression against women in your time, though you had different views on class, race relations, and oppression. Can you each say a little bit about your views on this? Barnett: My platform was my anti-lynching campaign which showed that sexism, racism and other forms of oppression were mutually constitutive and reliant. The main reason I had to run from the south and move to New York City was because I wrote a scathing editorial about three Afro-American business men (all three were friends of mine) who were lynched. It was to white Southern men, after......

...[pic] Management consulting To the brainy, the spoils As the world grows more confusing, demand for clever consultants is booming May 11th 2013 | NEW YORK |From the print edition [pic] ELITE management consultancies shun the spotlight. They hardly advertise: everyone who might hire them already knows their names. The Manhattan office that houses McKinsey & Company does not trumpet the fact in its lobby. At Bain & Company’s recent partner meeting at a Maryland hotel, signs and name-tags carried a discreet logo, but no mention of Bain. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), which announced growing revenues in a quiet press release in April, counts as the braggart of the bunch. [pic] Consultants have a lot to smile about (see table). The leading three strategy consultancies have seen years of double-digit growth despite global economic gloom. In 2011, the last year for which Kennedy Information, a consulting-research group, has comparable revenue numbers, Bain grew by 17.3%, BCG by 14.5% and McKinsey by 12.4%. All three are opening new offices. Big trends that befuddle clients mean big money for clever consultants. Barack Obama’s gazillion-page health reform has boosted health-care consulting; firms would rather pay up than read the blasted thing.

The Self

...The Self Judith James University of Phoenix Social Psychology/PSYCH 555 Glorivy Arce April 10, 2014 The Self “Identity is part of drama to me. Who am I, why am I behaving this way, and am I aware of it?”- American writer, Matthew Weiner (Brainy Quotes, n.d.). Most people are like Weiner, we ask ourselves “Who am I?” and our reply will usually be a description of our outside self, our personality traits, and the role we have in life. “The term self-concept is a general term used to refer to how someone thinks about or perceives themselves” (McLeod, 2008, para. 1). However, there is more to the concept of self, and how an individual develops the concept of self. Included in the aspect of self is the relationship between the person and his or her emotions, which affect a person’s self-esteem. How one presents themselves to others involves the relationship between the self and his or her behavior; a certain degree of a person’s self-presentation will also affect one’s concept of self. “A conceptual definition of the self includes the body, the inner self, the interpersonal self, and the collective self” (Fiske, 2010, p. 185). While the concept of self develops from the time of birth, it is a slow process simply because as a child one is concerned about how he or she fits into the world around them. A child will develop self through learning what he or she likes, or does not like; such as enjoying being outside, or preferring to be naked instead of......

Visual and Performance Art Defined

...visual art can be defined as, " types of art in which you make something for people to look at, for example painting, drawing, and photography (visual arts). Visual art is everywhere you look. It can be found in your home, office, even on city walls. Some might not find graffiti on the walls of their city pieces of visual art. McNichols (2006), "Depending on its content, it may be designed to elicit shock, anger, amusement, joy, desire, or introspection. But graffiti art was written or drawn on-site by someone, often displaying great skill with spray paint or imagination in setting an incongruous scene into your environment” (Visualizing Dissent: Graffiti As Art). As stated by Author H.G. Wells, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", ("Brainy Quote", 2001-2014). This means that what one person deems as art or beauty another may not find as visually stimulating. Visual Art can be a drawing made by a child to occupy their time. It is done out of creativity and for expression. Not all paintings and pictures need to be in a gallery to be recognized as a visual art. A decorated wedding cake is beautiful to a bride and groom. It is their vision and the decorator brought it to life for them. Visual art is everywhere and created by anyone. When we attend the Kenny Chesney (or any other artist) concerts of the world there are many things to take into account; how do we the audience relate and interpret the lyrics to the songs, music and the artists performance, how do the songs,......

It is my ardent belief that love and interest in one’s work is the driving force in becoming a successful leader. I could have progressed in the Army to higher positions of leadership, however the desire was not there after eight years of service. Foremost to becoming a leader in a company will involve finding an industry where I can thrive. The search thus far has yet to produce any concrete results so this issue is on the backburner for now. It is best to start by fostering currently possessed strengths. My mentor said two of my best strengths are persistence and a desire to learn. Franklin would approve as expressed in a quote of his from Brainy Quotes (2001), “Energy and persistence conquer all things” (para. 3). Multiple-linkage Model Franklin involved himself in manifold industries and pursuits. The web contains thousands of sites that document Franklin’s accomplishments but little relay how he led others. The leadership style in running a print shop may not have worked in dealing with other Founding Fathers as they drafted the Constitution. Franklin displays traits of the multiple-linkage model. The requirements of multiple-linkage model for leadership behavior, situational variables and mediating variables are listed as “many” (Yukl, 2013, p. 176).

Parenting Tips

...Good morning ladies and gentleman. It gives me a great pleasure to welcome all of you to this open day of Brainy Montessori in this morning. I’m ----------------- the founder of Brainy Montessori. I’m here to talk about “What does it take to be a good parent?” Before we go further, let me explain a bit what Brainy Montessori is. Brainy Montessori has been designed to teach children count, writing and reading and so on. The Montessori method of education is developed by Dr. Maria Montessori is a child centered education approach based on observation from birth to adult. It is being tested 100 years ago. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, parent defines as a person who is a father or mother or a person who has a child. Parent also defines as to be or act as a parent to someone. Another definition is any organism that produces or generate another like parent cell or parent DNA. While, according oxford dictionary parent define as an animal or plant which new ones are derived. But, for me parent defines as a person who love their children unconditionally, always be by the children’s sides, understand their children. Someone who stands for them when they need someone, someone who will help them to solve problems. Someone who will teach or show them right or wrong, correct their mistakes. Back to the topic, raising kids is one of the toughest and most fulfilling jobs in the world. Most of the parents want to do the best in raising and teaching their children. Being......

...is more of a longer process which includes high quality. RAD is a shorter process that sacrifices quality for time. In result, the advantages and disadvantages of each methodology are greatly impacted by project visions and goals. I recommend applying JAD when possible and used RAD as a second resort. I would only sacrifice quality for less time as needed; not as a primary development. JAD is more useful when time is not of the essence while RAD is. RAD is more useful when money is an issue while JAD is not. Is it worth giving up quality to save time; is it worth giving up quality to save money? Is quality not a money maker? “Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.” – John Ruskin (Brainy Quote, 2014).   Reference Brainy Quote.

Varks Analysis

...Title: VARK Analysis-Awareness of Individual Learning Styles Grand Canyon University: NRS-429V-101120 01/17/2015 According to Gorge Evans “Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way” (Brainy Quote, 2015). This quote depicts that every individual possesses different learning style and strategies which help in education success. It is realized that in order to accomplish learning and teaching goals a particular learning styles and strategies must be adopted. A school of learning styles has coined many learning strategies that learners and teachers exploit to attain success. There are visual, auditory, read/write and kinesthetic (VARK) developed by Neil Fleming in 1987. The combination of these learning styles was generated for this writer, according to the VARK questionnaire ( www.education.com). Learning Style Summary A quote by Benjamin Franklin states that “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” summarizes everything about the learning style this individual possesses (Brainy Quote, 2015). The VARK analysis establishes the writers learning style as being first visual and gives it a score of twelve. A visual learner absorbs information by seeing it and committing it to memory. People with visual learning styles tend to like reading, they are detailed oriented and has intense perception of colors and shapes. The second learning style is Kinesthetic and was awarded a score of eleven (VARK,......

Demonstrative Comm

...person from how that person communicates. Psychologically, creating positive communication is important for our health and interpersonal relationships. Being able to self-talk can create a positive tone and encouragement not only to yourself, but when communicating with others. In conclusion, as Peter Drucker would say “the most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said” (Brainy Quote, 2015). I can agree with this statement because a lot can be said through ones actions even if their lips are saying something else. Demonstrative communication is so important to portray to others; it gives the receiver an imaginative description to the message. The sender needs to put his thoughts into words or actions in order for the receiver to understand the sender’s message. Communication will always be important because it creates relationships, self-growth, helps solve problems, and builds trust. An idea however brilliant and unique it is, is a waste unless and until it is communicated and shared with the world (management study guide, 2013). References Brainy Quote. (2015). BrainyQuote.

Technology and Accounting

...advancement in technology has taken the accounting profession much further than it was in the past. Technology has made it safer through requiring authorization through computer systems. The advancements in technology have now made the task of an accountant much easier. The information is more accurate and efficient thanks to the technology at people’s hands. It is possible to have real time reporting so people are up to date minute to minute instead of waiting for all the information (Simkin, Rose, & Norman, 2012, Chapter 1).

...practitioner scholar. Through observations of the outcome of the solution to the focused issue, it can be determined that there is a need for individuals to enter the field. Exhibiting and finding ways in which scholarships may be integrated into this field will be essential for finding solutions to other problems in the community. Nick Saban, the head coach of University of Alabama, who is considered as a community activist was quoted as saying: “When you invest your time, you make a goal and decision of something you want to accomplish. Whether it is making good grades in school, be a good athlete, be a good person, go down and do some community service and help someone’s who’s in need , whatever it is you are investing your time in that” (Brainy Quotes, 2015). Community Psychology is considered to be rooted from clinical psychology but there is a significant difference between the two. When one describes clinical psychology, it is considered a one on one counseling model. The field of community psychology goes further it focuses on the effect that the community has on the individuals in the community. Community psychology can be beneficial to a psychology practitioner in achieving their goals and visions that consist of making the necessary changes in a community. How one may contribute in this field and make an impact on the community is a foundation to finding practices that may help integrate scholarships and solutions to these issues.

How Do We Perceive Motion?

...September 21, 2011 In our daily lives, we have come to recognize motion in regards to ourselves and other stationary objects around ourselves. We concluded that of an object that maintains it position with respect to the immobile objects, is at rest. We also determined that all objects moving, along with the earth without changing its positions on earth surface is considered stationary objects in the earth’s frame of reference. So theoretically, “all bodies not changing position with respect to a specific observer is stationary in the frame of reference attached with the observer.”(Singhil) Hermann von Helmholtz stated, “A moving body whose motion was not retarded by any resisting force would continue to move to all eternity.”(Brainy) Helmholtz means that every single thing on earth is always constantly moving. What is motion; it is a state which indicates change of position. Motion of a body refers to the time given in a frame of reference. A frame of a reference is a method to describe space from the perception of an observer. In other words, it is a system of measurement for locating positions of the bodies in space with reverence to a viewer. These terms “reference” and “observer” are used to explain and describe motion. A frame of reference is a mathematical construct that specifies the location of a point of an object in space. The frame of reference is a coordinate system. The most common coordinate system is the Cartesian system, it......
