Normalization

In 'The Secret of Childhood', Dr. Montessori describes normalization as when a child is attracted by an object he fixes his whole attention intently upon it and continues to work without a break in a remarkable state of concentration. After the child finished his work, he appears satisfied, rested and happy” (p.114). Normalization in the Montessori classroom can be seen in the delight of a student working with pouring material in the preschool years, mastering the checkerboard to learn multiplication in the Primary years or working on social justice projects in the Intermediate years. It is a result of preparing an environment and developing the expectations and boundaries for students in such a way that the directress or director can step away and allow independent learning to flourish.
