Guides at different levels must stay informed and in dialogue with one another in order to understand the contributions and needs of the two different planes. Our responsibility is to aid and support the children and each other in this transition. The Montessori school environments can overlap to assist children who straddle both planes in the context of meaningful work and to inspire maximum interest as these children move from one plane to the next.


This course will explore the pedagogical guidelines and pragmatic points for helping the child transition from the second plane to the third plane, from the elementary years into adolescence. Approaches to knowledge in giving presentations, in offering keys, and in preparing the environment will be presented in different contexts.
