Montessori Research Library

Researchers are increasingly contributing to the body of knowledge about Montessori education. In the AMS Research Library, you will find scholarly resources curated from a range of platforms. Look for:

  • Dissertations and theses vetted by college and university faculty for appropriate research methods and conclusions.
  • Peer-reviewed journal articles, the foundation of scholarly research because they are considered to be the most rigorous and valid sources of information.
  • White papers authored by members of the AMS Research Committee that address issues of importance to Montessorians.
  • Action research projects reporting on research designed and conducted by practitioners to solve an immediate problem or improve their own practice.
  • Conference handouts from research-related workshops and posters at The Montessori Event.
