Montessori Institute for Professional Studies
I found a link to the Montessori Institute for Professional Studies this morning and it looks very promising. Basically they offer one or two day continuous workshops throughout the summer on topics that Montessori teachers often don't get to explore in depth perhaps as much as they'd like to, such as Music (course taught by Sanford Jones), Class Management, Science, and Art among other things. They offer workshops for Primary level, Elementary and and for Administrators as well. They also have online discussion groups called "Ask a Mentor" where different subjects are touched on in a one hour live online chat. They also have consulting services ($500- $1500 a day!) for schools. Definitely something I will consider along with/instead of the yearly AMI Refresher Course.
