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: In questo scritto si propone un breve excursus storico sullo sviluppo dei metodi e dei materiali educativi per i soggetti con deficit intellettivo, rintracciando alcuni nuclei teorici ed operativi elaborati da tre studiosi: Jean Itard, Édouard Séguin e Maria Montessori, ancora attualmente forieri di arricchenti riflessioni. A partire dall’influenza delle teorie di John Locke e dell’Abbé de Condillac nell’opera pionieristica di Jean Itard, si evidenzia il contributo offerto da Édouard Séguin con la sistematizzazione di un metodo centrato sullo studio individuale del bambino e sull’analisi dei fenomeni fisiologici e psichici nei processi educativi, per poi completare la dissertazione con la significativa rielaborazione critica compiuta da Maria Montessori in relazione in particolare agli aspetti legati all’apprendimento della scrittura e della lettura. A corredo illustrativo dello scritto, si presentano in appendice alcuni dei materiali di sviluppo ideati dai tre studiosi. / In this paper we offer a brief historical overview of the development of methods and educational materials for subjects with intellectual deficit, retracing some theoretical and operational nuclei processed by three researchers: Jean Itard, Édouard Séguin and Maria Montessori, still currently harbingers of enriching reflections. Starting with the influence of the theories of John Locke and de Condillac on the pioneering work of Jean Itard, we highlight Edouard Seguin's contribution whose systematization of a method centered on the study of the individual child and on the analysis of physiological and psychical phenomena in educational processes. Finally, we complete the dissertation with the significant critical reworking by Maria Montessori particularly in relation to the learning of writing and reading. An illustrative appendix shows the most representative learning objects devised by the three researchers.
