Principles to Practice [P2P]

Classroom Management Video Library (Elementary)


helping teachers translate Montessori principles into practice in the classroom

For Montessori Elementary Guides (Ages 6-12)

The Principles to Practice (p2p) video library covers common classroom management issues faced by Montessori teachers.

Motivation
Class Meetings
Co-Teaching
Disruptive Behavior



Managing Socializing


Working with IEPs


Formative Assessment


Meeting Standards



..and more!


How do you find time to teach everything?


How do you balance individual needs with academic expectations?


Why are the children having trouble cooperating?


How do I get the children to listen to me?


How do I balance small group and large group lessons?

How do I help children who need constant attention?


Why am I so stressed at the end of the day?


We created this program because over the years in our work with Montessori professionals, we have heard variations of these questions over and over again.

Transform your classroom practice

"I think I'm doing everything they taught me in training but something seems to be missing."


We believe the missing ingredient is experience, and that is what we hope to offer here. 


In p2p you can tap into the experience of Montessori professionals who have walked this path and figured out a few things. Learn the strategies, firmly rooted in Montessori principles, that have been tried and tested in the classroom environment.


We will dig in to the nuances of your classroom management questions. You will learn how an experienced Montessorian might tackle a particular scenario.


As we revisit basic Montessori principles and illustrate how they can be applied in different real classroom scenarios, you will leapfrog to new levels of understanding and begin to fill in the gaps in your application of the principles.  

These videos are a must for every elementary guide!

-Bethany Sparling

When you went through Montessori training, you received the tools you needed to be successful as a Montessori guide.


In p2p you will learn how to master the use of those tools.

It's wonderful to have a video of an experienced, friendly teaching mentor providing great advice and suggestions whenever I get a chance to watch. It's well worth the small fee. I haven't had a chance to watch every month but I look forward to those vacation days when I can expand my knowledge and get recharged. Thank you. -Faatimah Yanes

Will you add new videos to the library?
We do not have plans to add new videos to the library at this time, but this may change.

Will the certificate count towards the AMS Continuing Education requirement?
While we do not guarantee that our certificates will be accepted by any particular agency, thousands of Montessori educators have received Trillium certificates over the past few years and we have not heard any feedback that the certificates were rejected. If you are counting on having the certificates approved, we recommend contacting your agency of choice before you sign up.

Will you show us how to present Montessori materials?
No. We will not cover material presentations or discuss curriculum. We expect that members will already be familiar with how Montessori materials are used and presented.

I am a homeschooler. Will this help me?
The strategies offered are applicable to a Montessori classroom setting with multiple children. However, many of the principles we discuss can be applied to a home setting as well. Homeschoolers will need to adapt the advice for their own specific situations.
