SECTION C - READING
I. Read the following passage, then choose the best answer.
Originator of the Montessori method of education for preschool children, Maria Montessori, was the first woman to receive a medical degree in Italy. After receiving her degree in 1894, she worked with subnormal children as a psychiatrist at the University of Rome. It was there that she pioneered in the instruction of retarded children, especially through the use of an environment rich in manipulative materials. The success of Maria’s program with retarded children led her to believe that the same improvements could be made in the education of normal preschool children.
This led her to open the first day care center in Rome. With its success similar institutions were opened in other parts of the United States.
In the early part of the 20th century, however, interest in the Montessori method declined because of those who argued that education should be more disciplined. But by the late 1950s the Montessori method experienced a renaissance, and in the 1960s the American Montessori Society was formed. The chief components of the Montessori method are self-motivation and auto-education. Followers of the method believe that a child will learn naturally if put in an environment with the proper materials. The teacher acts as an observer and only interferes if help is needed. Educators in this system are trying to reverse the traditional system of an active teacher and passive class.
41.The best title for this passage is 
	A. Self-Motivation.	B. The Montessori Method.

42. In 1894 Maria Montessori
	A. opened a new day care center.	B. worked as a psychiatrist.
	C. taught normal preschool children.	D. disciplined retarded children.
43. The author implies that Maria Montessori believes 
	A. children need strong discipline.
	B. it is important that teachers instruct children clearly.
	C. teachers should be very active.
