This book was first published in 1909 under the title 'Il Metodo della Pedagogia Scientifica Applicato all'Educazione Infantile nelle Case dei Bambini' ('The Montessori Method: Scientific Pedagogy as Applied to Child Education in the Children's Houses) and was revised in 1913, 1926, and 1935. Maria Montessori revised and reissued this book in 1948 and renamed it 'La Scoperta del Bambino'.

Available from: ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

Abstract/Notes: With the passing of NCLB in 2001, pedagogy in the kindergarten classroom has changed exponentially. The requirement for a rigorous academic curriculum has replaced the play-based learning that used to be synonymous with the kindergarten classroom. Since the beginning of kindergarten, researchers have worked to prove the importance of play in the classroom and the role of the educator in these play-based learning scenarios. Many studies have found a correlation between play and child development, but this has not been enough to change the minds of educators and school districts across the United States. This qualitative case study explored teachers’ perceptions and classroom interactions during play through a triangulation of data including video recordings, interviews, and observations to explore the effect play might have on the social, emotional, and oral language development of kindergarten students in a district that is already implementing free play centers in the classroom. Varying beliefs among the educators and multiple scenarios of social, emotional, and oral language development skills being used by students during these free play sessions were explored. Key themes that emerged from the data included a range of understanding amongst the teachers, the need for regular professional development on how to implement play in the classroom, and the importance dramatic play has on social, emotional, and oral language development for kindergarten students.

Montessori Versus Confucius - Jumping Over the Door the Fish Becomes a Dragon: Exploring the Feasibility of the Introduction of Montessori Methods into Chinese School Education

Available from: Monash University

Abstract/Notes: This treatise systematically explores the students' views of school education in Mainland China. It focuses on the feasibility of the introduction of Montessori educational ideas into Chinese school education. The study compares the opinions of the participants on the formal education system adopted in public schools in China and their views on what the Montessori method might constitute, as a prerequisite to discussing the possibility of adopting Montessori methods in these schools. Then it looks at the educational policy that favors such an introduction. The main method used in this study is a survey conducted in a local high school in the northeast of China. The participants were questioned about their satisfaction level with advanced Western educational methods and principles. The author also attempted to gain an insight into the possibility of the adoption of Montessori methods in other public schools in China. To do so, questionnaire covering such areas as learning effectiveness, teaching methods, and the curriculum have been carefully designed and distributed in several public schools. The study showed that while learning is relatively effective, the teaching methods in Mainland China are monotonous, and the curriculum is controlled by examinations. Nevertheless, the monotonous teaching methods show a trend towards being diversified. The statistics also show that those students who were subject to Montessori methods in the early childhood period were less satisfied with the relationship between students and teachers than those who were subject to the traditional teaching methods. However the former subjects are more satisfied with their classmates than are the latter. As far as the curriculum and independence in classrooms are concerned, neither group was satisfied
