Dr. Angeline Stoll Lillard, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia, has been studying Montessori’s methods for more than two decades.  Her best-selling book, Montessori: The Science Behind the Genius, in its third edition, was awarded the Cognitive Development Society Book Award in 2006.  In this lively and engaging ten part series of lectures, Dr. Angeline Lillard presents Montessori’s theoretical principles, the science research that has followed them, and how they are implemented in a Montessori classroom.

This DVD is the best introduction to the Montessori Method, particularly for parents who might be skeptical as to what an “alternative” educational method can bring that traditional, factory-style schools do not. “
