Dear Friend of Montessori,
My name is Rebecca Keith. I have been a Montessori guide for almost 40 years. I am currently Head of School at One World Montessori School and Head of The Maria Montessori Teacher Training Center, a MACTE accredited teacher training center in San Jose, California. I am currently doing research for my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership at Saint Mary’s College of California, and I would greatly appreciate your assistance in recruiting potential participants for my study.
I am interested in exploring the epistemological development of former Montessori students who were co-creators of themselves in a Montessori prepared environment for a minimum of six years, as they complete their first year of college. The participants in this study would be initially asked to complete a survey called the Learning Environment Preference (LEP) on line. Some of them would also be asked to participate in an interview, either face to face or on Skype.
The data collected for this study could add to our understanding of how the Montessori Method, with its developmentally appropriate prepared environment and approach, supports and nurtures epistemological development.
If you know of any former Montessori students who meet these criteria, could you please have them contact me at:email@example.com
Thank you so much for considering my request. With your assistance, I will have the opportunity to expand our understanding of the potential benefits of a Montessori education.
