Freedom of choice is vital in the Montessori classroom. However, freedom can also lead to exclusion and social cliques. Regularly diversifying groups and seating not only allows for children to experience being leaders and being led by others, it also gives them the opportunity to connect with students they might not otherwise. 

You can create an environment that allows for freedom, while avoiding the formation of cliques and encouraging an abundance of friendships and work partners.

What’s in this episode:

How bonds in the Montessori classroom can turn into smaller social cliques

How the Montessori classroom can unintentionally facilitate bias and exclusion

Ways to regularly facilitate children working with non-preferred partners
