Rationale The reason I picked Steiner and Montessori is because I feel they are two very strong theorists and I personally find these two the most interesting. I will be interesting to find out more about them both and how they compare About the theorists Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was a person in the field of early childhood education and care. In the beginning, Maria Montessori trained to be a doctor and was the first women to graduate from the University of Rome Medical School. She went on to help with poor children in Rome, many of these children would be mentally handicapped. Herself and another doctor Eduard Seguin developed certain tasks which encouraged the children to develop.
Tina Modotti was a photographer, actress and political activist. Her career as a photographer only spanned about 9 years, but yielded some very important works. Tina Modotti was born in 1896.

Similarly Marie Montessori Philosophy believes that they must aide the child reach its full potential in life. That children develop and think differently from adults was a radical view for Maria’s time. Froebel’s philosophy for teaching children is that their education should be completely integrated coherent pedagogical approach. Froebel also argues the point is that we should acknowledge the past ideas as it’s is from those past ideas new growth occurs. Froebel philosophy broken down is that basically play is the highest level of development.
The following essay seeks to discuss the educational theorists Maria Montessori and Friedrich Froebel. In this essay, the ideas by which these authors will be evaluated and compared with regards to their philosophies and contributions. However, as teaching styles vary greatly among teachers, this essay has been approached with the teaching style of the author as the primary recipient of the ideas put forward by the theorists in question. The essay is preceded by this introduction. Following this, the work of Montessori will be evaluated.
In her handbook, Montessori explains that a teacher “should never be the obstacle between the child and his experience.” This shows that she wants children to live their lives freely and without hindrance to their successes. Montessori believes that children should solve problems for themselves, not have a teacher intrude upon their thought process. She wants children to be able to rely on their teacher to help them when necessary and allow them to learn and think for themselves, which would let them to expand their understanding of the world and lead a successful life in the future. Also, Montessori explains that “we try to force them to follow us without regard to their special needs.” As a result, children can feel inferior or lesser when compared to their teachers or adults. Montessori brings light to this in hopes to accommodate all children and their possible needs.
One of the main people who influenced Bartolommeo was Giovanni Francesco, Giovanni was a very good friend of Leonardo DA’ Vinci so naturally he and Leonardo had similar thoughts on many people that they met. One of those thoughts was that they both hated the talented young sculptor of the time; Michelangelo. Many people who have studied Baccio and his life have realized that in his notebooks he writes about how he loathes Michelangelo and everything about him, but there also seems to be a hint of jealousy in his writing. Bandinelli was taught how to hate the amazing sculptor with a burning passion, but somewhere along the line it looked like Baccio stopped hating the sculptor and started obsessing about him and his work. After awhile of people dismissing and ignoring Bandinelli’s small wax sculptures, he finally had enough of it and started to put less time on his small structures and began to try and build gargantuan sculptures so that people would actually look twice at his work and realize that he was a very talented artist.
He also was involved in some economic projects. These projects helped with constructions and the government throughout Italy during the economic setbacks.

A pioneer in the early childhood educational (ECE) sector, born in Ancona, Italy in 1870, was Dr. Maria Montessori. Striving for peace and balance between child and adult was something that started at an early age for Montessori. One day she had placed a chair between her parents during a heated argument, stood on the chair and placed her Mother’s hand together with the hand of her Father’s as tightly as possible, thus, bringing to the forefront the beginning of her peace-making efforts between child and adult. The belief system, Maria Montessori developed for herself was that there was good in every child, that they’re born with the potential to become incredible human beings; however, it was up to the adults to bring forth that potential.
