Control of Error

Welcome to Montessori Album!
We've been online for over ten years, but unfortunately we've had a lot of spam accounts over the years. We didn't have a good way of sorting out legitimate ones...so took the extreme measure of wiping everything before November 2019. We're so sorry if you've lost your account and weren't a spammer. We've setup stronger anti-spam measures and will be monitoring more closely in the future to prevent such drastic action.
Please recreate your account if you find it no longer works. Again sorry for the strong measures! We love submissions that aren't from trolls and spammers!

Montessori materials are designed in a way that allow the child to know whether or not he has done the work correctly. In this way, the child does not need to rely on the teacher to correct his work, but instead, fix any mistakes he has made himself. The term "Control of Error" is used to describe the intrinsic properties of the work that allow this.

Some Montessori materials do not have intrinsic Control of Error and for these the child must rely on the teacher or an older child for correction.
