Comparing the Normalization of Children in Traditional and Montessori Kindergarten

Available from: University of Wisconsin

See More

Abstract/Notes: In this study, the author examined the level of Normalization kindergarten children display in a Montessori classroom and a traditional classroom. Normalization can be demonstrated through the child’s love of work, concentration, self-discipline and sociability. Data was gathered from the child and lead teacher through classroom observations, teacher questionnaires, child-interviews and a self-control test. Classroom observations in both environments gave insight into the child’s ability to focus and concentrate, as well as observable indications of a love of learning. Teacher questionnaire results were compiled and compared revealing children in Montessori classrooms have more room for choice, multi-sensory material use and more developed literacy skills. The child-interview results indicated that Montessori children were more sociable and self-reliant than traditional school children. Children attending Montessori kindergarten showed a greater level of self-discipline than traditional school children in the self-control test. Ideally, children attending a Montessori children’s house should continue their education for kindergarten into their third and final year. The discussion considers the ongoing benefits of staying in a Montessori environment for the kindergarten year.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori-based interventions (MBIs) have potential to improve the life quality of long-term care residents with dementia. In this study, we aimed to understand the processes by which staff integrated a volunteer-led MBI into practice within a special dementia care unit, and to explore staff members ’ perceptions of associated strengths and limitations.This study relied on a qualitative descriptive design. Following a 3-month period of volunteer involvement, we conducted 21 interviews with staff members to document perceptions of the new program and subjected interview transcripts to qualitative content analysis, guided by normalization process theory.During the implementation of the volunteer-led MBI, staff members developed a shared understanding of the intervention, a sense of commitment, practical ways to support the intervention, and opinions about the value of the residents. Overall, we found that the volunteer-led MBI was quickly and successfully integrated into practice and was perceived to support both residents and staff members in meaningful ways. Nevertheless, some limitations were also identified.Volunteer-delivered MBIs are a useful adjunct to practice within a special dementia care unit. This article raises attention to some strengths and limitations associated with this approach.

An Understanding of Montessori's "Normalization" Based on the Concept of "Order" / 몬테소리의 “정상화” 개념의 이해“질서”를 중심으로

Available from: RISS

Publication: 교육철학 / Philosophy of Education, vol. 24

Pages: 95-108

Abstract/Notes: This paper is an attempt at schematization of Montessori's "normalization" which she herself callled "the most important single result of our whole work." But it is different from most previous analyses of normalization in that it goes deeper than the common understanding of normalization as "work"; instead, it tries to understand the concept as meaningful "ordering" of world. Montessori's other important concepts such as "work," "concentration," "repetition," and "deviation," are organically related to the concept of "order." Montessori's theory of education could be recognized as a general theory of education, not just a theory of early childhood education, normalization being an ideal of life for the young or the matured, as well as being a stepping stone of child development.
