Abstract/Notes: El tema de este artículo no es tanto la admirable participación de Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky en la resistencia de la Viena de entre guerras y durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, como sus proyectos sociales de edificación. Proyectos los concebía como funcionales y orientados a dignificar el espacio, ya sea físico, intelectual o afectivo. Entre ellos se encuentran la construcción de viviendas sociales, lavanderías cocinas escolares, etc. En lo referentes a escuelas se siguió la visión pedagógica de Maria Montessori. [The laudable participation of Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky in the Austrian resistance during the Second World War is not subject of this article but her and her contribution to architecture. Her projects are meant to be functional and oriented to dignify space, ranging from designing social housing, laundries to cooking schools. However, her core work is focused on the construction of schools planned according to the pedagogic perspective of Maria Montessori.]

American Writings on Maria Montessori: An Inquiry into Changes in the Reception and Interpretations Given to Writings on Maria Montessori and Montessori Educational Ideas 1910-1915 and 1958-1970

Available from: ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this dissertation will be to survey and analyze American writings on Maria Montessori and her educational system, in order to show how the idea of Montessori education has interacted with some changing American ideas and social forces. These changes in social and intellectual currents can be likened to a shift from centrifugal to centripetal force; or to the expansion and then the contraction of a universe. The central metaphor is the same. It is applicable to, and illustrative of, much about the changing social and educational scene in America. The writings on Montessori, examined against this framework, should provide a new view on certain changes in American educational thinking.

Abstract/Notes: After completing her training in 1913, Margaret Naumburg, in her lectures and articles, portrayed a highly emotional and romanticized image of Maria Montessori. Naumburg established several Montessori schools in New York City: at the Henry Street Settlement in 1913; at the Leete School from 1914 to 1916; and in the New York public school system in 1915. Stymied by bureaucracy and inadequate funding, she abandoned her public school experiment. Moving from Montessorian principles, Naumburg identified increasingly with child-centered Progressive education but added a dimension from Jung’s Analytic Psychology which emphasized children’s need to free their emotions through imaginative, creative self-expression through art. She founded her own “Children’s School” in 1916 in New York City, subsequently renamed the Walden School. She is also famous for developing dynamically oriented Art Therapy.
