Montessori education is so much more than materials and presentations! KHT Montessori includes a study of Montessori principles and background along with the curriculum in their courses. The background information includes a number of book studies. Today, I have a free 19-page book study from KHT Montessori for the book Understanding the Montessori Approach by Barbara Isaacs.
Free 19-Page Book Study for Understanding the Montessori Approach: Early Years Education in Practice from KHT Montessori
To see how the book fits into the KHT Montessori course, you can download the 12-month KHT Montessori Online Course Syllabus here.
Note: You don’t need to buy the book to enjoy the book study. But the book is definitely worth having.

KHT Montessori Course Schedule for 2021
In case you’re not familiar with our homeschool background, my daughter, Chrissy, was a Montessori child. I homeschooled Chrissy and her older brother, Will, through high school. Chrissy and her husband are homeschooling their 3-year-old son, Caleb. Chrissy started the July 2020 class of KHT Montessori. She loves it!

The Structure of the KHT Montessori Online Course with Class Forum Example and 12-Month Syllabus
If you wonder about how the course is structured, check out this information by Karen Tyler about the forum based classroom: “Let’s be honest here, most of us are very busy with family, outside jobs, etc. We also all live in many different time zones. Most “virtual class rooms” require you to log in at a specific time to be part of a live webinar/class. Self-paced online programs do not offer the personal direction and discussion with a teacher nor classmates. We have created a Forum Based Classroom that can be accessed any day of the week any time day or night. You can log in on your schedule and read the lectures, ask questions, join in on the discussion and I check in daily to reply and keep the class moving forward. It is the benefits of a live classroom but on your schedule!”
You can see an example of the forum (answering the question: “Is Montessori education rigid?”) here. (Click on the forum image to see it at full size.)

“I have worked in a Montessori School for one year and have observed this method in action. It works for all children equally! I have the opportunity to be a lead teacher in the preschool classroom but I need the proper training. The lead teacher that is in the classroom now took the KHT course and loved it! I want to show the director of our school that I am serious about this position and would benefit from these course greatly. Thank you for this opportunity!”
