Abstract/Notes: Ofrecemos un estudio sobre la presencia y enfoque de la pedagogía Montessori en las revistas españolas In-fan-cia, Aula de infantil y Cuadernos de Pedagogía. Después de hacer un recuento de la totalidad de artículos que sobre esa pedagogía publicaron las citadas revistas hasta el presente, identificamos su enfoque y los temas abordados. Se encuentra una escasa, aunque creciente, presencia de artículos sobre la educación montessoriana. Al realizar el análisis de contenido, hemos descubierto que la mayoría de estos artículos se refieren a propuestas prácticas fuertemente relacionadas con los principios de la pedagogía Montessori. Considerados en su conjunto, en ellos aparecen todos los temas clave. Este estudio constituye un completo índice y una útil guía para aquellos lectores de lengua castellana que quieran introducirse en el estudio de esta original pedagogía. / This study analyzes the presence and approach of Montessori pedagogy in Spanish journals In-fan-cia, Aula de infantil and Cuadernos de Pedagogía.

Abstract/Notes: A presente investigação focaliza os principais fundamentos da pedagogia montessoriana no que tange aos aspectos relativos à teoria e ao método propostos por Maria Montessori, desde o final do século XIX, e adaptados aos contextos educativo e curricular contemporâneos na Prima-Escola Montessori, localizada na Cidade de São Paulo. A referida Instituição tem seu trabalho reconhecido ao longo de quase três décadas no território brasileiro e também no plano internacional por ser a única instituição educacional sul-americana citada no Around the World in 100 Years – Montessori Centenary. Considerando, a priori, a pertinência de estudos que oportunizem o resgate da dimensão pedagógica na história do currículo das organizações educativas, este trabalho apresenta como problema de pesquisa a seguinte indagação: quais são as contribuições pedagógicas do modelo curricular montessoriano aplicado à Educação Básica na escola brasileira contemporânea? Para respondê-la, foi desenvolvida uma pesquisa, de cunho predominantemente qualitativo, baseada na observação participante por meio de entrevistas semiestruturadas e fotografias. Nesse sentido, o trabalho estrutura-se em três capítulos. O primeiro capítulo faz um resgate de fatos significativos da trajetória da vida pessoal e profissional de Maria Montessori; o segundo apresenta uma abordagem das ideias básicas da pedagogia científica desenvolvida por ela e a gênesis dos princípios, que fundamentam seu método educativo; e o terceiro fala sobre a pesquisa de campo realizada na Prima-Escola Montessori de São Paulo, com a intenção de permitir uma análise crítica entre teoria e prática e verificar quais são, na atualidade, os valores e as possibilidades desse sistema de ensino. [The following investigation focus on the main foundations for the montessorian pedagogy about aspects related to the theory and the method proposed by Maria Montessori since the end of the XIX century and adapted to contemporary educational and curricular contexts at Prima –Escola Montessori, in São Paulo. This school has been recognized for its work for almost three decades in the Brazilian territory and also internationally, being the only South-American one mentioned in Around the World in 100 Years – Montessory Centenary. Taking into consideration the relevance of studies that permit the rescue of the pedagogical dimension in History of the curriculum of the educational institutes, the following work presents, as research problem, the following question: What are the pedagogical contributions to the montessorian curricular model applied to Basic Education in contemporary Brazilian Schools? A predominantly qualitative research was developed to answer it, based on interactive observation, semi-structured interviews and photographs. For that objective, this work is structured in three chapters. The first chapter is a rescue of the significant facts related to Maria Montessori’s personal and professional life; the second presents an approach of basic ideas concerning the scientific pedagogy developed by her and the genesis of the principles that are the bases for her educational method; and the third is about the applied research at Prima-Escola Montessori in São Paulo, with the intention of permitting critical analysis between theory and practice and verifying the values and the possibilities of this teaching system nowadays.]

Academic Achievement: Montessori and Non-Montessori Private School Settings

Available from: ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to describe the extent to which sixth grade elementary school students in Montessori school settings and sixth grade elementary school students in non-Montessori school settings differ with regard to academic achievement as measured by the Ninth Edition of the Stanford Achievement Test. Schools that are certified as "Montessori" must meet stringent requirements and although the Montessori philosophy has been implemented in the United States for a number of years, little research has documented its effectiveness, at least as based on students' scores on standardized tests. In the Rio Grande Valley, few Montessori schools are in place and even fewer administer such assessments. A causal-comparative research design with matched pairs was used to describe the difference in academic achievement of sixth grade elementary school students in Montessori school settings with sixth grade elementary school students in non-Montessori school settings. Archival data were analyzed using five separate t-tests for paired samples in which the raw scores for reading, mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies were the dependent variables for achievement for both sixth grade elementary school students in Montessori school settings and sixth grade elementary school students in non-Montessori school settings as measured by the ninth edition of the Stanford Achievement Test. The results indicate that the academic achievement in reading and mathematics of sixth grade elementary school students who have attended Montessori school settings is statistically significantly higher than the academic achievement in reading and mathematics of sixth grade elementary school students who have attended non-Montessori school settings. The knowledge gained from this study might assist educators and parents in search of the most effective education to offer children. It will also extend knowledge of Montessori and the effects that it has on the academic achievement of children.

Abstract/Notes: The American public generally recognizes the name "Montessori" because so many schools across the country and around the world use the Montessori name. However, the Montessori community has long believed that misunderstandings abound. A recent dissertation study quantified Montessori awareness and identified misconceptions in particular for those aspects of Montessori education that are unique, relative to other educational settings. In order to gauge public understanding of Montessori education, an online survey was conducted with members of an Internet panel administered by a national research firm. The study included a demographically representative sample of 1,520 U.S. adult panel members, who answered questions regarding their understanding of Montessori education. Two members of the American Montessori Society's Research Committee and six Montessori teachers, including a combination of early childhood and elementary teachers with AMS and AMI credentials, reviewed the survey to identify any disagreements on correct answers for the Montessori knowledge questions. The survey was field-tested with six individuals, including parents and nonparents, both with and without Montessori experience, to identify any potential points of confusion. Results show that the public clearly lacks understanding of the Montessori perspective on extrinsic rewards, including such things as stickers, certificates, and even teacher praise. Since extrinsic rewards are common in other school settings, their absence in Montessori environments may seem peculiar unless people understand that Montessori philosophy is based on the idea that students develop intrinsic motivation when the learning activity itself, not an external incentive, is its own reward. The public recognizes that developing children's concentration abilities is a goal of Montessori education, but opportunities exist for helping people understand specific practices employed to achieve this goal (i.e., providing opportunities for long stretches of uninterrupted work time, allowing the child to determine the timing of changing activities). Better understanding of the reasons behind the unique structure of the schedule in a Montessori classroom will help people see that the differences from other educational environments are based on a comprehensive philosophy of child development.

[Introduction: The user-centered approach contributes to the quality of life of the elderly and people with dementia in the home for the elderly and to the well-being of employees at work. The purpose of the research was to determine the experience of employees in a home for the elderly using the Montessori method in working with the elderly and people with dementia. Methods: A case study was done in a nursing home where the Montessori method is used. Partially structured interviews were conducted with eleven employees in one of the homes for the elderly in Slovenia. A content analysis method was used for data analysis. Results: Four categories were identified: (1) substantive and organizational aspects of the Montessori method in the treatment of the elderly and people with dementia; (2) cooperation between employees, residents and relatives; (3) personal development of employees; (4) the importance of education for employees. Research on the experience of employees in the treatment of the elderly and people with dementia shows the intertwining of all categories.categories. Discussion and conclusion: The findings contribute new knowledge in the application of the Montessori method in homes for the elderly. Employee experience has shown that the use of the Montessori method helps to better understand the importance of cooperation, education and related personal development of employees. In practice, it is recommended to systematically introduce the Montessori method for the elderly and people with dementia with an emphasis on education, which is a necessary basis for practical work. We suggest further research into the experience of employees and the search for opportunities to introduce the method in other homes for the elderly.]
