Abstract/Notes: This study examined how teachers in multi-grade classrooms manage and use available resources in their classrooms. The study focused on multi-grade classrooms in farm schools in the Free State province of South Africa that cover Grades 1 to 9. The concepts “multi-grade classrooms” and “resources” are explained below. The availability and utilisation of resources in multi-grade classrooms is discussed in some depth. A qualitative research design was used to collect data. Interviews were conducted with 9 teachers who worked in multi-grade classrooms. The data reveals that the availability of resources has improved somewhat in the multi-grade classrooms surveyed; however, textbooks specifically meant for multi-grade classrooms are still lacking. The data also points to several other trends. For example, most multi-grade schools in the sample have insufficient resources. Where available, the resources are either under-utilised or used improperly. Furthermore, it is usually the case that learners are required to share resources across various grades. Moreover, teachers often use their personal resources to get their work done, and in this regard, smartphones play an important part. Finally, the study also reveals that teachers do try to use various types of resources to cater for different learning styles.Keywords: activity centres; classroom organisation; Montessori educational theory; multi-grade classrooms; resource corners; resources

Abstract/Notes: A. Šiame straipsnyje Kauno seserys benediktinės pristatomos kaip visuomenės ugdytojos. Jų ugdomoji veikla suklestėjo 1918–1940 m. Lietuvoje. Kauno visuomenė vertino seserų benediktinių ugdomąją veiklą, kurioje buvo taikoma tuo metu nauja ir moderni M. Montessori pedagogikos sistema. Atliekant tyrimą, naudotasi dar niekur nepublikuotais šaltiniais, padėjusiais atskleisti seserų benediktinių ugdomąją veiklą ne tik Kaune, bet ir įvairiose Lietuvos vietovėse: Joniškyje, Pasvalyje, Čiobiškyje, Prienuose, Ariogaloje, Čekiškėje, Šiluvoje, Vilniuje ir Pernavoje. Ši veikla buvo susijusi su vienuolyno plėtra, naujų skyrių steigimu. Seserys ne tik prisidėjo prie visuomenės ugdymo nuoširdžia apaštališkąja veikla, taip atsiliepdamos į to laiko reikmes, bet ir atrado dirbdamos ugdomąjį darbą naujas benediktiniškojo gyvenimo formas. [This paper presents the Sisters Benedictines of Kaunas as educators of the society, whose educational activities flourished from 1918 to 1940 in Lithuania. Kaunas society appreciated the educational activities of the Benedictine Sisters, which used the new and modern pedagogical system of M. Montessori at that time. During the research, unpublished sources were used, which helped to compile and present, in order to achieve the set aim, educational activities in Kaunas and, based on the development of the monastery, the establishment of new departments, to highlight educational activities in various areas of Lithuania. The Benedictine Sisters were sent everywhere as educators and educators who applied the most upto-date and modern Montessori pedagogical system of the time. Having the necessary preparation, this pedagogical system was applied by the Benedictine Sisters working with children not only in Kaunas as the first nun educators, to whom the first state primary school was opened at the request of the monastery society, but also in the kindergartens established by them in Joniskis, Pasvalys, Zasliai, as well as in the transferred to lead children’s shelter in Ciobiškis, and a kindergarten in Prienai. Most of the sisters worked in different kindergartens: educators and leaders, there were sr. Gabriele Spokaite and sr. Apolonija Salčiute. Non-formal education was provided in other established sections of the monastery. The Sisters prepared children for the First Confession and Communion in Ariogala and the Cekiškes. The Benedictine Sisters cared of the church and took care of the old people in Siluva. The Sisters engaged in self-education or educated others in Vilnius. And there is no knowledge about any educational activity in Pernava, but during the ten years of the opening of this monastery branch, one or another educational activity had to be carried out.]

Sisters and Sisterhood: The Kenney Family, Class, and Suffrage, 1890-1965

See More

Abstract/Notes: The Kenney family grew up in Saddleworth, outside Oldham, in the last decades of the nineteenth century. In 1905, three of the sisters met Christabel Pankhurst, a turning point which changed the rest of their lives. Annie Kenney became one of the leaders of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), Jessie was an organiser at the heart of the organisation, and Nell campaigned outside the capital. Caroline and Jane used their connections within the suffrage movement as the springboard for careers in innovative education on both sides of the Atlantic. While working-class women are increasingly acknowledged in histories of the WSPU, this study is the first to make them the primary focus, and, in doing so, it opens up a new conversation around sex, class, and politics, and how these categories interacted in this period. This is a study of the possibilities for, and experiences of, working-class women in the militant suffrage movement. It identifies why these women became politically active, their experiences as activists, and the benefits they gained from their political work. It stresses the need to see working-class women as significant actors and autonomous agents in the suffrage campaign. It shows why and how some women became politicised, why they prioritised the vote above all else, and how this campaign came to dominate their lives. It also places the suffrage campaign within the broader trajectory of their lives to stress how far the personal and political were intertwined for these women. Although this is a book about 'working-class suffragettes', Lyndsey Jenkins also reveals what it says about women as workers and teachers, religious believers and political thinkers, and friends and colleagues, as well as suffragettes. Above all, it is a study of sisterhood.

Abstract/Notes: Includes a list of individuals assisting Montessori with her work in San Diego. Also, reports on a 10-lecture series Montessori provided: "For the benefit of mothers, teachers and all others interested, Dr. Montessori has decided to offer a short course of ten lectures and two demonstrations of the use of the didactic appareatus, to begin Wednesday, July 7th, at 3:30 p.m. in the lecture room, at the normal school. Those interested in this course should make personal application on Monday and Tuesday, between the hours of 2 and 3, in the afternoon, in Dr. Montessori's office at the normal school, where they may learn the nature of the work and the requirements for admission. This short course has been arranged in response to the many requests that have been made for it by persons unable to take the advanced course which was begun in Los Angeles and will be continued in San Diego and, later, in San Francisco, for about four months. The first public address by Dr. Montessori will be given at the exposition on the afternoon of July 12, which has been set aside by the exposition management as 'Education Day.'"
