The Montessori Adolescent Practitioners Symposium (MAPS) is a convening space for peer-to-peer sharing of best practices, cutting edge thinking, and practical strategies in Montessori adolescent education (12-18 years). The goal of MAPS is to fill a recognized gap in opportunities for adolescent practitioners to share individual experience, knowledge and practices in order to strengthen the community as a whole.

MAPS is for middle and high school practitioners.

Workshops will offer experiences, tools and resources of value to practitioners working with adolescents. Proposals for presenters at MAPS are welcomed and encouraged from practitioners working in public, private, urban and rural and any and all affiliations. If you are interested in submitting a proposal to be a presenter at MAPS, please visit our call for proposals page.

Workshops will be offered in the following topic areas:

SEL: Social and emotional learning includes promoting students’ self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, relationship, and responsible decision-making skills

Technology: Tools, machines and systems that solve problems

Interventions: Support for students to address functional, academic, cognitive, behavioral, and social skills

Justice: Actively promoting and aspiring to advance the culture of inclusion through intentional and positive efforts that benefit people as a whole

Disciplines: Work within a specific content area
