Normalization: Supporting Self Regulation and Executive Functioning in Montessori Classrooms

As Montessori educators, we all know "normalization" as Montessori defined it. In this workshop, we will learn what current research shows in supporting self-regulation and review many resources and practical applications for your classroom. We will also take a look at current research as well as practical ways we can support self-regulation and executive functioning in Montessori classrooms as part of this normalization process.
