Abstract/Notes: This contribution aims to highlight the aspects of the Montessori Method that are particularly functional to inclusive classroom management and for a heterogeneous school context. The theoretical framework is the idea of education in the Montessori approach in that she is considered the forerunner of an inclusive pedagogical vision. In fact, while the first years of her research were addressed to the field of special education, she was soon convinced of the possibility of extending her studies also to “conventional” schools. On the basis of this belief, her experimental work was soon extended from institutions for disabled children to a series of kindergartens (called “Children’s House”) first in Rome and then in the rest of the world. In the second part of this brief analysis, a study is presented on the use of the QBS questionnaire (Tobia & Marzocchi, 2015) with a sample of 73 Montessori public school children and their parents. The questionnaire on “Quality of Wellbeing at School” is the tool we selected for the phase of data collection, with the intention to investigate the point of view of pupils and their parents. Our analysis aims to understand the perception of well-being at school in children and their families. The statistical analysis applied to the results from the administration of the questionnaires revealed some significant data, in particular in the scale relating to satisfaction and recognition and in the scale relating to the relationship with classmates. At the same time, the statistical analysis of the questionnaire dedicated to parents revealed a significant effect on the scale related to child awareness.

Abstract/Notes: The aim of this study is to determine the self-efficacy perceptions of special education teachers about the use of the Montessori method by a valid and reliable scale developed by the researcher. The model of the research is a general descriptive model of quantitative research methods. In the 2017–2018 academic year, 67 special education teachers who work under the Directorate of Primary Education of the Ministry of National Education of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus are participated in this research universe, which comprise 29, 12, 20, 4 and 2 teachers from Special Education Application Centre, Special Education and Work Application Centre, primary schools, kindergartens and school for visually impaired, respectively. This study was conducted only with all the special education teachers in the universe not by any sampling method. The general proficiency perceptions of the special education teachers for the use of the Montessori method were at the level of instability. According to the general competency perceptions of the female teachers on the use of the Montessori method, it was found that their responses were more positive than the males.

Abstract/Notes: Quando pensamos em educação especial, já buscamos meios eficientes para trabalhar de forma correta e eficiente. Entramos então na busca de defender a TEORIA MONTESSORIANA, criada por Anna Freud Maria Montessori, como uma das melhores formas de se trabalhar com educandos com deficiência, pois entendemos como educadores que educar é algo poético, que depende não somente do básico da teoria e sim do amor que nos liga a essa profissão. Este trabalho, que tem por objetivo básico a conclusão do curso de mestrado, apresentou no decorrer das pesquisas uma nova visão e base para a profissão. Buscando soluções e modificações imediatas no trabalho diário em sala de aula. O saber a teoria nos remete a uma modificação no cotidiano escolar, desde a forma com que olhamos para nossos alunos até a base estrutural da sala de aula. Este trabalho teve como metodologia a forma descritiva, a qual, segundo Lakatos (1997), expõe a pesquisa de material já publicado e autores renomados para sua execução. [When we think of special education, since we seek efficient ways to work properly and efficiently, then enter the search defend the Montessori Theory, created by Anna Freud Maria Montessori as the best way of working, because we understand as educators that to educate is something poetic, which depends not only on basic theory, but on the love that binds us to this profession. This work, whose primary objective is the completion of the master program, presented in the course of research a new vision and basis for the profession. Seeking solutions and immediate changes in the daily work in the classroom. Knowing the theory leads us to a modification in everyday school life, from the way we look at our students to the structural basis of the classroom. This work has as methodology a descriptive form, which according to Lakatos (1997) exposes the research material already published and renowned authors for its execution.]

Abstract/Notes: A Maria Montessori nevével fémjelzett pedagógiai irányzat nem ismeretlen a külföldi és hazai pedagógia számára. Jelen cikk a Montessori módszer gyógypedagógiai gyökereinek bemutatására törekszik és ez által a gyógypedagógiai szempontú alkalmazásra kíván rávilágítani. A gyakorlatban sok Montessori-intézmény több éve végez sikeres integrációt és ma már Magyarországon is mûködnek gyógypedagógiai adaptációi a módszernek. A cikk a Montessori -gyógypedagógia gyakorlati eredményeit is bemutatja a 2008-ban végzett kutatási eredményekre támaszkodva. [The pedagogical trend marked by the name of Maria Montessori is not unknown to foreign and domestic pedagogy. This article seeks to present the special pedagogical roots of the Montessori method and thus to highlight its application in special pedagogical terms. In practice, many Montessori institutions have been successfully integrating for several years, and special educational adaptations of the method are already operating in Hungary today. The article also presents the practical results of Montessori special education based on the results of research conducted in 2008.]

Abstract/Notes: The choices for public school education in the United States have evolved to include Montessori programmes. As a result, special education practices have become visible in Montessori, making collaboration essential. The exploration of how Montessori and special education teachers collaborate through the identified constructs of (a) shared planning, (b) frequent communication, (c) shared vision, (d) mutual respect, and (e) joint trust despite the evident philosophical differences is important for students in inclusion. Data sources included in-depth interviews with teachers to identify patterns related to collaboration in Montessori public schools. Findings indicated that there is a need to establish a clear plan for connecting philosophies and for collaboration for students in inclusion, not only in the context of United States public Montessori programmes, but for Montessori practitioners in other regions and school settings. Recommendations include using a terminology comparison activity in teacher professional development and implementing an Inclusion Professional Learning Community to address the barrier of time to proactively create deep collaborative relationships built upon the established collaborative constructs.

English Language Learners and Special Education Students in Montessori Schools: The Case for Push-In Services

Available from: National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS)

See More

Abstract/Notes: Both education research and federal mandates point toward the desirability of well-implemented inclusion programs for English language learners (ELLs) and special education students. Within an inclusion model, bringing interventionists to the general education classroom, rather than separating students for support services, is increasingly viewed as an optimal model for supporting students with special educational needs. The logic of the Montessori method uniquely situates its classrooms both to support and benefit from a push-in model of special education and ELL instruction.
