Imagination-Previsioning (IP)

“…an intending Montessori teacher …must keep her imagination alive…In her imagination she sees that single normalized type”
Dr. Maria Montessori from Absorbent Mind, p.252
Dr. Montessori recognized the power and value of imagination, faith and inner preparation in applying her approach with children. The IP technique activates these ideas by having you imagine a problem situation with children, and then pre-visioning a solution using an alternative to what you did before. Later, you experiment with the new idea in the real-life situation with children, studying its practical effect to finally resolve the problem.
