Capstone Project (Open Access)
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
This senior capstone explores the benefits of Montessori pedagogy for special needs students. This research collects the experiences of Montessori and special needs teachers from the San Benito area. Along with the field research, my findings have indicated the benefits of the materials and environment of a Montessori classroom for special needs students. This study shows that the integration of Montessori pedagogy for special needs students proves beneficial in their academic and emotional development and a need to recognize alternative educational styles and their benefits for special needs students. To conclude by bringing light to Montessori pedagogy as a teaching style there are many benefits for a student’s development academically and socio-emotionally.
