What are the pros and cons of the Montessori method of teaching?

Answer

The Montessori Method of teaching preschoolers was developed in the early 1900's in Italy. Some of the pros include treating children with respect, the use of natural material, and mixed age classrooms. Some of the cons include too much emphasis on academics, books used for research and not for enjoyment, and not much music time.
