(Compiled from A. Paolini 's lectures) Centro Internazionale Montessori (Perugia)

1) If you have to summarize in 5 words her 12 commandments, what words would you choose? 2) Which words is she repeating on and on? 3) What is her main message through these 12 commandments? 4) Does her message make sense today? Is it feasible? 5) What kind of qualities she mentions each teacher-guide shall develop?
