Analysis of Movement (Montessori)

The Analysis of Movement is a technique employed in Montessori education, in which complex tasks are broken down into their component parts for teaching.[1] By demonstrating each movement slowly and precisely, educators can enhance the child’s comprehension and mastery of the task.


Montessori Quotes

  • “In our technique we act in such a way that the child may learn by looking at a well made action with all its details.”[2]
  • “The child who has never learned to act alone, to direct his own actions, to govern his own will, grows into an adult who is easily led and must always lean upon others.”[3]
