Abstract/Notes: Montessori preschool children who are English Language Learners (ELL) age three to five, consisting of one female and six males. It was conducted in two different preschool classrooms, focusing on literacy skills as well as oral communication skills. The direct aim of the study was to help children successfully learn English as their second language while keeping their native language. Researchers also investigated whether parental involvement increased the ability of ELLs to learn the English language. Data collection procedures utilized were: (1) parent interviews, (2) observation and anecdotal records, (3) pretest, and (4) post-test. A take-home literacy kit was used to measure the effectiveness of parental involvement. Researchers also provided a take-home literacy kit for parents to work on with their child at home. Parents were given a total of four literacy kits, one new kit each week. Result of this research indicated an improvement in parent and child interaction. The take-home literacy kit fostered communication between parent and child because words were translated in their home language. Over the course of four weeks, children showed great interest in literacy and progress in their communication skills.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this research; What is the opinion of teachers about organizational trust and how they change in kindergartens undergoing change process. The study focused on the teachers' organizational trust and resistance to change after they experienced change by adopting the Montessori education model of 10 state kindergartens in the Beylikdüzü and Üsküdar districts of Istanbul in the 2018-2019 academic year. Teachers were also affected by this change and started teaching according to the new model. In the research conducted in qualitative design, the opinions of the teachers were obtained through face-to-face interview forms. Teachers' opinions were examined with descriptive technique, organizational trust and resistance to change were revealed, and tabulation, sorting, and grouping techniques were used to describe the findings. At the end of the research, it was determined that teachers have organizational trust, but they are also worried because of the change. In the detailed examination of the opinions, it was determined that they trust the most of their colleagues and at least the school administration. In terms of resistance to change, it is obtained that they show resistance at the level of "cautiousness" for economic, familial, psychological and sociological reasons. While opinions of advanced-aged teachers about change are more resilient than young teachers, organizational trust views are less trustworthy. / Bu araştırmanın amacı;Değişim süreci yaşayan anaokullarında örgütsel güvene ilişkin öğretmen görüşlerinin neler olduğu ve nasıl değiştiğinin incelenmisidir.Çalışma 2018-2019 eğitim öğretim yılında İstanbul Beylikdüzü ve Üsküdar ilçelerinde klasik eğitim yapan 10 devlet anaokulunun Montessori eğitim modelini benimseyerek değişim yaşadıktan sonra öğretmenlerin örgütsel güven ve değişime karşı direnç görüşlerini konu edinmiştir. Bu değişimden öğretmenler de etkilenerek yeni modele göre öğretmenlik yapmaya başlamışlardır. Nitel desende yürütülen araştırmada öğretmenlerin görüşleri yüzyüze görüşme formlarıyla elde edilmiştir. Öğretmen görüşleri betimsel teknikle incelenerek örgütsel güven ve değişime direnç görüşleri ortaya çıkartılmış, bulguların betimlenmesinde tablolaştırma, sıralama, gruplandırma tekniklerinden yararlanılmıştır. Araştırma sonunda öğretmenlerin örgütsel güvene sahip oldukları fakat yaşanan değişiklik nedeniyle kaygı da kuydukları tespit edilmiştir. Görüşlerin detaylı incelenmesinde en fazla meslektaşlarına, en az da okul yönetimine güven duydukları tespit edilmiştir. Değişime direnç bakımından ise ekonomik, ailesel, psikolojik ve sosyolojik sebeplerden dolayı "temkinlilik" seviyesinde bir direnç gösterdikleri sonucu elde edilmiştir. İleri yaşlı öğretmenlerin değişimle ilgili görüşleri genç öğretmenlere göre daha fazla direnç niteliğinde iken örgütsel güven görüşleri daha az güven niteliğindedir.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s vision of peace education includes a deep respect for integral human development where a focus on the whole child in the context of the larger community is the norm. Within Montessori education, children learn each part of the universe, living and non-living, play a role in the cosmic order of the world. Long before climate change became a mainstream concern and imminent threat, Montessori understood that ecoliteracy and a deep reverence for understanding how sustainability, sustainable living, respect for the environment, and a deep understanding of the means of production and exchange were essential to the development of a peaceful world. This chapter explores her philosophy of peace education, its relationship to environmental stewardship, and the implementation of these themes within the Montessori context.
