    Professional Development ~ From Chaos to Calm: Normalization

    In Montessori’s day, in the field of cultural anthropology, “normalization” meant becoming a contributing member of society.

    Normalization is something that spontaneously happens when children are given meaningful work to do, especially individualized work that’s freely chosen and meets their developmental needs through engaging, hands-on activities. When a child becomes what we call “normalized,” we begin to see beneficial changes leading to several major characteristics:

  • Love of work
  • Concentration
  • Self-discipline
  • Calm, joyful friendliness
  • Genuine interest in learning

    Central to Maria Montessori’s discoveries is the process of self-construction within the young child. As she humbly observed and learned about these largely unrecognized qualities, she understood that education is not about what the teacher says or does, it is about the activity of the child.

    These qualities reveal themselves when we prepare the environment and provide freedom of choice. No teacher “makes” the child work. Children love the work that corresponds to their internal development, and it is our job to provide that environment.

    The role of education is to interest the child profoundly in an external activity to which he will give all his potential.
