Course Overview

If you feel like you are in a constant state of reactive management in your classroom, it is very likely that the children are not reaching the state of Normalization. These qualities of Normalization reveal themselves when we prepare the environment and provide freedom of choice. No teacher “makes” the child work. Children love the work that corresponds to their internal development, and it is our job to provide that environment. Enjoy more calm in your classroom when you cultivate an environment for Normalization!
