Abstract/Notes: Currently, the Montessori community is increasing its focus on the importance of research. The purpose of this article is to provide some background for critical readers of research related to Montessori education and to provide the tools to implement these findings in one's own Montessori work. Research articles are generally organized in a way that allows the reader to easily follow the logical flow of the research process. Readers will typically see an introduction followed by information on research methods. Research articles usually conclude with a discussion of results and practical implications. This article outlines key considerations and questions one should ask oneself in each of these areas.

Abstract/Notes: This article discusses participative action research performed by a network consisting of researchers and student-teachers of a University of Applied Sciences and teachers and pupils of four primary schools in the Netherlands. The research took place in the context of the research group ‘Behaviour and Research in the Educational Praxis’. The primary schools focused on inclusive education in order to allow children with special educational needs to participate in mainstream schools. The central idea of the research project was to integrate the insiders’ perspective of the teachers with the outsiders’ perspective of the university researchers. Therefore, the research project combined process and content goals. The research lasted from September 2008 to June 2010, and consisted of five different stages: orientation, general and specific exploration, reconstruction and overall analysis. This article describes the goals and results of each of these stages. The article concludes with a final discussion on the main findings. An important result included a nuanced view of teachers on their power position in the classroom. Teachers facilitated children to increase their own responsibility for their behaviour and their interaction with their classmates and the teacher. This seemed to provide a basis for a more organic order in the classroom, which was less dependent on the interventions of the teacher.

Abstract/Notes: Angela and the AMS Research Committee are organizing several events for the AMS 2017 Annual Conference, March 9-12, in San Diego: our ninth-annual research poster session; a workshop on graduate research in Montessori education and a networking session for graduate student researchers; a pre-conference session for university-based Montessori researchers; and a session highlighting recent research findings, for teachers and administrators.In 2015, scholars from across the nation met at Westminster College, in Salt Lake City, UT, for the first Montessori Research Retreat, funded by a generous donor and co-hosted by Murray and Nancy Lindeman; Nancy is director of the Institute for Montessori Innovation at Westminster College.Angela is spearheading efforts to start a Montessori special interest group (SIG) within the American Educational Research Association (AERA), which has a membership of more than 25,000, consisting of "faculty researchers, graduate students, and other distinguished professionals with rich and diverse expertise in educational research" (aera.net).

Abstract/Notes: To answer these questions, teachers benefit from using a tool that improves their teaching effectiveness and student learning: action research.Action research offers a focus for these efforts and empowers teachers to make practical, meaningful changes in the classroom.Since action research is participatory, the research and the knowledge produced are controlled and owned by the community in which it is conducted (Baum, MacDougall, & Smith, 2006).According to Ward, "We advise our teacher candidates that when they do a more formally structured action research project, they should choose an area of inquiry that they are passionate to explore, because it will spiral and they will be learning new information about this aspect of curriculum and development from their students for years to come" (personal communication, November 1, 2016).

Abstract/Notes: This study to determine effects of preschool training of mentally retarded children from low-income families asks three major questions: 1. Does preschool training displace the rate of development of such children? 2. Does rate of growth continue at an accelerated rate, or does it return to the original rate of development during primary school years? 3. Are the results similar for children living in different environments? Five intervention programs are outlined: 1. Traditional nursery school; 2. Community Integrated program; 3. The Montessori method; 4. Karnes structured cognitive plan; and 5. The Bereiter-Englemann(B-E). As a result of the program, some children in the demonstration center no longer function in the retarded range. Behavior has improved and several have entered a public school or preschool for normal children. It is suggested that mothers of infants might accomplish more at home with guidance, since professional tutoring is not feasibly practical, and children with higher IQ need special early programming to attain their potential.
