COURSE DESCRIPTION

Teacher training for Fostering Relationship Intelligence: A Peacemaking Curriculum for Montessori Education

In full support of Maria Montessori’s belief that "establishing peace is the work of education" we invite you to join us in an exploration of HOW TO:
Embracing a uniquely Montessori approach to "classroom management", you can see your students’ daily frustrations, tiffs, and clashes as the “materials” for the most powerful and practical learning you can model and provide for them.

Relationship Intelligence is a natural capacity we all have to engage power with each other for mutual well-being. It comprises a set of capacities that we are born with but that are rarely developed to the level of competencies. You can activate and foster Relationship IQ at the same time you foster their intellectual curiosity and academic achievement.
With the Relationship Intelligence skills that you can provide them, your students will:
YOU CAN develop your own capacity for creating peaceful relationships and a peaceful world, within yourself and in the world, while you do the same for your students.
