Abstract/Notes: The author of this article describes her week observing a Montessori class in the Adam Vesviva School at Kibbutz Ga'ash, located on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. The headmaster of the school, Yariv Ya'ari, had previously been associated with Democratic Schools, an alternate to the public educational system, whose philosophy was established at Adam Vesviva. This approach has at its center respect, independence and child-centered learning. The article relates how impressed she was by the independence and mutual respect of the children and the wonderful cooperation among the faculty. She found the headmaster to be an excellent role model and advocate for Montessori education. Children and seniors enjoyed their meals together in the kibbutz dining hall in a wonderful example of intergenerational socialization and cooperation. The elementary room resembles any class in the United States, except that all the work done at Adam Vesviva is in Hebrew. Seeing a well-designed fort built by two 10-year-old boys, and recalling the same project by boys in her 9-12 class in America was a reminder of Montessori's understanding of the universality of the planes of development. The author was touched when some children, who were learning English, invited her to a special presentation of her book, "A Little Book of Peace." The children and teachers at Adam Vesviva put much importance on the value of cultural studies that included all members of the human family, often focusing on the importance of shared cultural heritage. The operation of a Montessori elementary class within the Adam Vesviva School is a work in progress, and the faculty is becoming familiar with the Montessori philosophy.

Three Streams in Alternative Education: A Philosophical, Pedagogical, and Practical Comparison Between Democratic, Waldorf, and Montessori Education

Available from: European Journals of Education Studies

Publication: European Journal of Alternative Education Studies, vol. 6, no. 1

See More

Abstract/Notes: This article examines the three most prominent movements of alternative education in Israel: Democratic education, Waldorf education, and the Montessori method of education. By comparing the educational approaches according to specific criteria, the goal is to provide the reader with as broad a picture as possible of their similarities and differences. The discussion focuses on the philosophical approach and general principles of each movement and does not aim to provide information or characteristics of specific educational institutions. One of the goals of the article is to bring before parents, educators, and policy makers knowledge of the different approaches so that they can understand and judge them with greater clarity.

The 200-Year Legacy of Infant Schools

Abstract/Notes: The early childhood education field includes an array of curriculum models. In Approaches to Early Childhood Education, Roopnarine and Johnson (2013) describe nine specific approaches used in today's pre-schools, ranging from the US-basd HighScope model to approaches with European origins, such as Reggio Emilia and Montessori. However, as Milly Almy (1986) observed nearly 30 years ago in the inaugural issue of Early Childhood Education Quarterly, the early childhood education field can be characterized by uniformity. She quoted a colleague who had asked her, "Why is it that whether I go to Kenya, Israel, Bolivia, or Australia, the programs look and sound so much alike?" (7), despite the diversity of the children and families the programs serve. As David Weikart (2003) highlighted in his summary of the IEA Preprimary Project research involving 15 countries, "dependence on a whole group organization in early childhood care and education settings is international" (245). We believe the global trend emphasizing more structured programs for young children, particularly those from families with low incomes, has its roots in the past (Cleghorn & Prochner 2010), and we explain this by using a historical example and by drawing on Everett Rogers's (2003) diffusion of innovations theory.
