Promising Practices in the Prevention of Bullying: Using Social and Emotional Skills to Prevent Bullying

Available from: University of Southern California - Digital Library

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study applies Bronfenbrenner's ecological framework as a theoretical lens in looking at using social and emotional learning in the prevention of bullying. The purpose of this study was to determine what systems and structures were perceived to make a positive difference in creating an anti-bullying climate. Additionally, this study sought to determine how those systems and structures were implemented and sustained. Taking a case study approach, a small, private school of approximately 360 students was used in this qualitative research. Utilizing interviews, observations and artifact review data were triangulated and interpreted for analysis. Findings for this study indicate that applying a whole school approach emphasizing continuity, creating a community of belonging and connection, and focusing on the development of the whole child contributes to creating and sustaining an anti-bullying climate. Additionally, developing social and emotional skills through integrated curriculum, the learning environment, and the teacher as facilitator contribute to a healthy climate that resists bullying. As this study suggests social and emotional learning can positively affect classroom and school climates.

Abstract/Notes: This study examined how teachers in multi-grade classrooms manage and use available resources in their classrooms. The study focused on multi-grade classrooms in farm schools in the Free State province of South Africa that cover Grades 1 to 9. The concepts “multi-grade classrooms” and “resources” are explained below. The availability and utilisation of resources in multi-grade classrooms is discussed in some depth. A qualitative research design was used to collect data. Interviews were conducted with 9 teachers who worked in multi-grade classrooms. The data reveals that the availability of resources has improved somewhat in the multi-grade classrooms surveyed; however, textbooks specifically meant for multi-grade classrooms are still lacking. The data also points to several other trends. For example, most multi-grade schools in the sample have insufficient resources. Where available, the resources are either under-utilised or used improperly. Furthermore, it is usually the case that learners are required to share resources across various grades. Moreover, teachers often use their personal resources to get their work done, and in this regard, smartphones play an important part. Finally, the study also reveals that teachers do try to use various types of resources to cater for different learning styles.Keywords: activity centres; classroom organisation; Montessori educational theory; multi-grade classrooms; resource corners; resources

Abstract/Notes: Includes a list of individuals assisting Montessori with her work in San Diego. Also, reports on a 10-lecture series Montessori provided: "For the benefit of mothers, teachers and all others interested, Dr. Montessori has decided to offer a short course of ten lectures and two demonstrations of the use of the didactic appareatus, to begin Wednesday, July 7th, at 3:30 p.m. in the lecture room, at the normal school. Those interested in this course should make personal application on Monday and Tuesday, between the hours of 2 and 3, in the afternoon, in Dr. Montessori's office at the normal school, where they may learn the nature of the work and the requirements for admission. This short course has been arranged in response to the many requests that have been made for it by persons unable to take the advanced course which was begun in Los Angeles and will be continued in San Diego and, later, in San Francisco, for about four months. The first public address by Dr. Montessori will be given at the exposition on the afternoon of July 12, which has been set aside by the exposition management as 'Education Day.'"

Abstract/Notes: Bullying is a serious problem in mainstream public schools. One purpose of this article is to review the literature to investigate whether other types of schools, such as Steiner schools and Montessori schools, have a lower frequency of bullying than mainstream schools. Another purpose is to determine if bullying is a common factor leading to decisions to homeschool children. The article also includes a discussion of some lessons mainstream schools can learn from alternative schools about bullying prevention. There is evidence to suggest that bullying is more prevalent at mainstream schools, and bullying is a commonly cited reason to homeschool.

Lying and Executive Function: Connections to Montessori Education

Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 31, no. 2

Abstract/Notes: [...]we delved into the related research on lying, executive function, and prosocial behavior and followed up with interviews of Montessori educators, who added a personal view on how to address children's lying in a Montessori environment. (2017) have examined the influence of Montessori education on students' development of executive functioning skills. Since evidence suggests that the Montessori environment promotes the development of executive function, these higher executive function skills may also contribute to a Montessori child's ability to tell lies, prosocial or otherwise. [...]these same researchers also found that environments with positive reinforcement through praise and WHAT DOES CHILDREN'S LYING SAY ABOUT THEM? verbal requests for the truth were more likely to produce the truth from students (Talwar & Lee, 2011). Since Montessori educators do not use corporal punishment procedures, Montessori environments should be more likely to produce honest students. Dr. Gay Ward, a veteran teacher educator, shared how Montessori teacher education helps teachers promote honesty (April 2018): I think our Montessori teacher education programs do give us some guidance on how to handle lying in teaching us how to observe and to value supporting children's autonomy [and their] ability to be responsible and make good choices-and creating a climate where the number one rule is respect for themselves, others, and the environment.

Abstract/Notes: This book traces the early history of the Montessori movement in the United States through the lives and careers of four key American women: Anne George, Margaret Naumburg, Helen Parkhurst, and Adelia Pyle. Caught up in the Montessori craze sweeping the United States in the Progressive era, each played a significant role in the initial transference of Montessori education to America and its implementation from 1910 to 1920. Despite the continuing international recognition of Maria Montessori and the presence of Montessori schools world-wide, Montessori receives only cursory mention in the history of education, especially by recognized historians in the field and in courses in professional education and teacher preparation. The authors, in seeking to fill this historical void, integrate institutional history with analysis of the interplay and tensions between these four women to tell this educational story in an interesting—and often dramatic—way.
