At Endeavor Montessori, we encourage the natural curiosity within each child to prepare students who will become the best critical thinkers of their generation.
To find out more about how we’re developing critical thinkers at Endeavor Montessori School, please call to schedule your private tour!
These courses introduce a substantive conception of critical thinking and how to infuse this conception throughout your work and life.
Classes begin August 23, so those interested need to register now.
Furthermore, the Fellows Academy will provide facilitator’s training to those attendees who have already met certification prerequisites.
Space is limited due to the intimate nature of the academy, so you won’t want to wait to register.We are also pleased to offer two online courses this fall semester, both of which count toward certification in our approach.‘CT700: How to Infuse Critical Thinking into Instruction’ is our instructor’s course (credit options available), while ‘CT800: Tools for Taking Charge of Your Learning and Your Life’ is for students and others interested in learning the foundations of critical thinking.When you think critically about an issue or a problem, it means that you can evaluate, be open-minded, and consider different ways of looking at possible solutions.As children grow up, their critical thinking skills become essential to helping them make judgments independently of their parents. The art of critical thinking begins to form in childhood!One thing that most child development experts agree upon is the importance of helping children build critical thinking skills.A Montessori education, as offered at Endeavor Montessori, is designed to foster the critical thinking skills that are vital to success in school and in life. Critical thinking includes different skills that help us learn to make our own decisions.Our Montessori-trained teachers ask open-ended questions that require your child to think, such as “What would happen if…?” instead of asking them to simply repeat information they’ve memorized.Endeavor Montessori offers a unique approach to learning.Unlike many traditional preschools and elementary schools which focus on memorizing then moving on, we encourage children to soar beyond memorization to a higher goal of active critical thinking and creative problem solving.
