To become a confident and articulate writer a child must first become a confident and articulate speaker.  Montessori educators at all levels have the opportunity to develop the power of language and light the flame of imagination in children.  From rhymes, songs, poetry, and finger plays, to dramatic recitation, speeches, and debates, foundations in speech lead to artfully crafted writing, and appreciation for the power and beauty of words.  Led by Montessori trainers Janet McDonell and Carla Foster, and enhanced by Maryanne Wolf’s  work on the neurological underpinnings of reading, language, and dyslexia this conference offers a full overview of oral and written language supporting development from childhood to adolescence.
