In Montessori education, an Indirect Presentation refers to a method of teaching that leverages the absorbent nature of a young child’s mind, where every action or event can be viewed as a lesson. Children learn not only from direct instruction, but also by watching other children work or by observing a lesson given to another. This approach extends to the child’s social environment as well – children can absorb behavioral patterns and language from their family, peers, and even media such as TV.
