Senari Academy’s Study Units are a variation and extension of the 3-part cards used in Montessori classrooms. To the labeled picture, unlabeled picture, and label included in the Montessori model, we have added a description with the name, a description without the name, and pages for making a booklet.
You may request the Microsoft Word templates by email from Senari@comcast.net. With this tool, you and/or your students can make Study Units for your own use, or the use of their classmates.
On to High School and College
Making study units prepares students to make their own study aids whenever they have a subject that lends itself to this format, i.e., a picture/diagram, a definition, and a label.
One of my daughters earned money by tutoring while doing her Pre-Med studies. She charged each of 5 students $10/hour and let them play her “games.” She learned the subject matter as she made the games, earned more than she could have by tutoring individuals, and her students successfully learned the material she presented.
For those of you who are wondering where Montessori principles can lead, this may give you a hint!
