by JAHNIGEN, CHARLES J

Abstract (Summary)
Combining a specific educational methodology with a specific approach to building can be an effective way to study the impacts of physical environment on learning capabilities. The outcome of this study will create a better understanding of the connection between Montessori teaching and the built environment. This thesis will investigate the relationship between the concepts of Montessori teaching and the process of building high performance sustainable facilities. The concept of combining Montessori teaching methods with high performance facilities will be investigated in this thesis to create a better system for learning. The result of this system will advance the Montessori teaching methods by better integrating the philosophies with the physical environment, which will make the overall learning experience more meaningful
