Abstract/Notes: The Montessori-Inspired Lifestyle® (MIL) was implemented as the foundation of care in several assisted living memory care (ALMC) neighborhoods to enhance meaningful social roles, engagement, and focus on residents' remaining capabilities. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to evaluate the outcomes regarding resident levels of engagement and prescribed antipsychotic medications before and after MIL implementation. A total of 85 residents were observed for 10-minute periods seven times during 1 day to ascertain the level of engagement during meals and planned and unplanned activities. Positive engagement minutes increased after MIL implementation for activities and meals. Outcomes of this project support the MIL as a foundation of care for ALMC residents and have raised the awareness for addressing diverse cognitive abilities. The need for reoccurring training for the sustainability of this model of care was recognized. [Journal of Gerontological Nursing, 46(5), 40–46.]

Available from: IGI Global

Book Title: Multifaceted Strategies for Social-Emotional Learning and Whole Learner Education

Pages: 1-24

See More

Abstract/Notes: This chapter explores the theories and histories of the holistic educational paradigm. Beginning with a description of the theoretical structures that underpin the holistic educational viewpoint, it lays the groundwork to understand how pedagogies as diverse as Waldorf, Montessori, Democratic Free Schooling, and homeschooling are connected by a common set of paradigmatic assumptions. Following brief summaries of the origins of these traditions, key aspects of practice and highlights from research carried out in each pedagogy are discussed. Concluding remarks draw connections between the fundamental convictions that gave rise to these pedagogies and the needs of educators in diverse contexts today. DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-4906-3.ch001

Abstract/Notes: In order to explore the way in which pedagogical practices are identified as being inclusive and might appear as they are used by teachers in Montessori settings, this instrumental case study is focused on finding nine inclusive pedagogical practices. The identified practices were clustered according to the themes of promoting collaboration, access to the curriculum and the recognition and acceptance of learners. Using direct observation in classrooms and individual teacher interviews as data collection methods, four teachers in Montessori primary classrooms were the main participants in this study. A combination of deductive and inductive methods was used to analyse the data. This study is set within a theoretical framework that includes Florian and Black-Hawkins’ rights-based interpretation of inclusive education in the management of a variety of learning needs among learners. The study also examines the relationship between the Montessori Method and inclusive pedagogical practices found in order to understand the extent to which the Montessori Method had an influence on the practices. The findings of this study indicate that elements such as the classroom setup, multi-age groupings and a strong focus on the individual learner had some influence on the inclusivity of the pedagogical practices observed.
