Cosmic Education at The Cobb School, Montessori

  1. 1. COSMICEDUCATION“Let us give the children avision of the universe.” Maria Montessori
  2. 2. DOES COSMIC EDUCATION SOUND...WELL... FREAKY?(C’MON, BE HONEST.)
  3. 3. ARE YOU AFRAID TO MENTION IT TO YOURNEIGHBOR? YOUR COLLEAGUE? YOUR FRIEND?
  4. 4. DON’T BE.BECAUSE IT’S THE COOLEST THING GOING.
  5. 5. OK, OK, SO THESE IMAGES ARE A LITTLE FREAKY.BUT WE NEED TO GET YOU IN THE MOOD.
  6. 6. ARE YOU FEELIN’ IT?GOOD.
  7. 7. COSMIC EDUCATIONIS THE ANSWER TO EVERY QUESTION THEELEMENTARY CHILD COULD ASK.
  8. 8. IT IS THE KEY TO EVERYMYSTERY HE BEHOLDS,EVERY NEED SHE MUST SATISFY.
  9. 9. IT GIVES THE CHILD AVISION OF THE UNIVERSE,A VIEW OF THE BIG PICTURE.
  10. 10. AND IT APPEALS TO THEIMAGINATION,BRINGING ORDER, HARMONY & UNDERSTANDINGTO THE CHILD.
  11. 11. Does it get any better? Before you answer, let us tell you a little more.
  12. 12. THEY AREREADY.ELEMENTARY CHILDRENNEED TO VIEW THE UNIVERSEAS A WHOLE.
  13. 13. THEY HAVE MOVED BEYOND ABSORBING THEIR ENVIRONMENT & FEEDING THEIR SENSESTO A NEW STAGE. THEY NOW WANT TO UNDERSTAND THEIR WORLD & THEIR ROLE IN IT.
  14. 14. TO DO THAT THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE PARTS,INCLUDING THE TINIEST ONES.
  15. 15. AND MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL.
  16. 16. HOW IS THIS DONE?
  17. 17. Start with The Story of the Universe.Show them how elements obey their laws& play their parts.Help them discover how every particleserves its purpose.
  18. 18. NEXT, THEY WILL REVEL IN THE STORY OF LIFE.AND KNOW THAT EVERY NON-LIVING & LIVING CREATURE ANSWERS TO A NEED.
  19. 19. THEN, THE STORY OF THE COMING OF HUMAN BEINGS,THINKING, ADAPTING, BUILDING, ORGANIZING, LOVING.
  20. 20. THEY LEARN THAT EVERYONE, LIKE EVERYTHING,HAS A PURPOSE & IS EAGER TO CARRY IT OUT.
  21. 21. NEXT, THE STORY OF WRITING & COMMUNICATION.PENMANSHIP & WRITING PRACTICE OF THE PRIMARY YEARS TAKE ON A NEW FOCUS.
  22. 22. LAST, THE STORY OF NUMBERS & MATHEMATICS,TAKING THE FAMILIAR, INVITING MATERIALS TO NEW HEIGHTS.
  23. 23. BUT COSMIC EDUCATION ISEVEN GREATER THAN THEGREAT STORIES & ALL THEDISCOVERIES THEY LEAD TO.
  24. 24. IT’S ABOUT WRESTLINGWITH THE BIG QUESTIONS &BEING BETTER OFF FOR IT.
  25. 25. THE ELEMENTARY CHILD TURNS OUTWARD, MOVESTO ABSTRACTION & DEVELOPS A CONSCIENCE.TO MISS THIS SENSITIVE PERIOD FOR MORAL DEVELOPMENT IS TO MISS THE GREATESTOPPORTUNITY IMAGINABLE, FOR THESE MOMENTS WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE.
  26. 26. It’s about making connections,understanding interdependencies &meeting responsibilities.
  27. 27. And it’s about discovering one’s cosmic task.NO MATTER HOW FREAKY THAT SOUNDS.
  28. 28. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE SKEPTICAL OR RELUCTANT.YOU NEED TO APPRECIATE ITS GENIUS.
  29. 29. COSMIC EDUCATION is the most natural, intelligent & inspiringapproach for elementary education. It is designed to fuel thechild’s drive & meet every need for his or her self-construction.The possibilities are endless & their imaginations are limitless.
