Each week, the Montessori Foundation’s Montessori Leadership Institute hosts live sessions focusing on Montessori outcomes for success and the importance of Montessori education. Sessions are led by Montessori Foundation experts or guest speakers.
This Wednesday’s session [1:00 PM Eastern Time in the USA (GMT -4)] will be hosted by Dr. Katie Brown, DC Regional Coordinator for The National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS). She will be discussing the DERS, a NCMPS developed Environment Rating Scale designed for Montessori and other education models to support development of executive function, linguistic, cultural fluency, social fluency, and emotional flexibility skills.
The DERS is a classroom observation tool that helps teachers support their student’s development by focusing on the outcome that matters most for children. It is designed to measure qualities such as patience and persistence, precision and clarity in lessons, and order in the environment.
