Available from: ProQuest - Dissertations and Theses

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: Home economics (now called family and consumer sciences [FCS] in the United States) and the Montessori education method were both started by strong women pioneers. American-born Ellen Swallow Richards (home economics founder) graduated from Vassar College (chemistry) the same year that Maria Montessori was born in Italy–1870. Both women were scientists and Richards was the first woman to graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (sanitary engineering). Montessori was interested in engineering but completed studies in medicine (pediatrics) and psychology. She was one of the first female doctors in Italy (Association Montessori Internationale, 2020; Kramer, 2017; McGregor, 2020).
