    This is the start of the application process for Montessori School Verification. 

    • Once you have registered for the process you will be automatically emailed a digital copy of the Self-Study Manual and Form. Be sure to check your junk if you do not see this email soon.
    • Follow the instructions for completing and submitting the form and required documents.
    • You will be contacted to schedule a Verifier visit after your self-study and required documents have been reviewed by the Verification Chair. If your school is AMS accredited or AMI/USA recognized, you only need to complete the self-study and not have a visit from a verifier. 
    • After the visit the Verifier will submit a report to the Verification Committee for review and approval at the next (monthly) PNMA board meeting.

    How can I support my students to become more self-directed?

    This two-part series will share research insights and include practical discussion on how to implement and support self-directed learning skills.

    Across two sessions, we will clarify how self-directed learning is defined and discuss what we already know about how skills develop across childhood and adolescence.  Findings from a research study on self-directed learning will be shared and practical implications discussed.  We will also  cover how research insights become practical strategies.

    Elyse Postlewaite - Postdoctoral Researcher - Montclair State ...

    Elyse L. Postlewaite, Ph. D., is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Research on Youth Thriving and Evaluation at Montclair State University. She studies child and adolescent thriving and optimal development in formal and informal education settings. Her research is predicated on the belief in the capacities of every individual and that the goals of optimal development, self-determination, and fulfillment are unique to every individual. Therefore, of particular interest to her research are self-directed learning skills, which can empower individuals to meaningfully guide their personal developmental trajectories, which can ultimately lead to outcomes that are of personal consequence. As a former Montessori student, Dr. Postlewaite is also passionate about promoting a deeper understanding of Montessori through research.
