Abstract/Notes: Charlotte Wood-Wilson, MEd, Oklahoma City University Oklahoma City, OK I enjoyed reading Marta Donahoe and Barb Scholtz's recent article, "Montessori Education for the Third Plane of Development" (Volume 28, Number 3, Fall 2016).Assessment in the MYP aims to: * support and encourage student learning by providing feedback on the learning process. * inform, enhance, and improve the teaching process. * provide opportunity for students to exhibit transfer of skills across disciplines, such as in the personal project and interdisciplinary unit assessments. * promote positive student attitudes toward learning. * promote a deep understanding of subject content by supporting students in their inquiries set in real-world contexts. * promote the development of critical- and creative-thinking skills. * reflect the international-mindedness of the program by allowing assessments to be set in a variety of cultural and linguistic contexts. * support the holistic nature of the program by including in its model principles that take account of the development of the whole student.While there is no direct conflict between Montessori at the Early Adolescent level and International Baccalaureate Middle Year Program (IB MYP), any IB Middle School teachers who are not trained in Montessori at the Adolescent level are missing essential elements for guiding the student at that level-for example, Cosmic Education, Erdkinder, transformation of the teacher, and specific ways to build community.

Hawaiian Indigenous Education and the Montessori Approach: Overlapping Pedagogy, Values, and Worldview

Abstract/Notes: Nanette Schonleber makes a remarkable correlation as to why Hawaiian indigenous educators thrive with Montessori pedagogy. Compatible educators share values and goals, such as developmental learning, respect for parenthood, freedom of movement and independence, choice in learning, and specific individualized potential. Hawaiian language and culture-based educators view their work as a way of learning embedded in a way of life that integrates a cultural worldview and belief system, such as the child as a spiritual being, earth as living, and creation as interconnected. The author also finds congruency in land-based learning as being fundamental to indigenous learning and similar to the Erdkinder emphasis for the adolescent where interconnectedness and community roles arise out of farming. [This article is based on the author's 2006 award-winning doctoral dissertation titled "Culturally Congruent Education and the Montessori Model: Perspectives from Hawaiian Culture-Based Educators."]
