Call for Poster Session Proposals Is Open
American Montessori Society
116 East 16th Street, New York, NY 10003-2163
September 1, 2011
Now through December 1, AMS cordially invites submissions of poster session proposals for “The 4th Annual Montessori Research Poster Session.” The session will take place Friday afternoon, March 16, at our 2012 Annual Conference in San Francisco, CA.
We are looking for research that spans a variety of topics of relevance to Montessori education including (but not limited to) character education, integrated curricular approaches, assessment in public and private school settings, and Montessori standards-based learning.
This year we would particularly like to support presenters who are interested in publishing their findings in Montessori or other educational journals. Members of the AMS Research Committee who have published articles will be on hand to provide guidance.
The session will have terrific visibility in the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. Although presenters cannot be reimbursed as speakers, names will be published in both the online program book and the on-site program guide.
Our goal is to have dynamic, highly informative posters that will create a stimulating forum to discover, question, and interact with the latest in Montessori research.
