Abstract/Notes: The math curriculum of the Montessori system of education for children ages 3–12 is distinctive, incorporating multiple manipulatives and educational practices which have theoretical and empirical support in research. However, studies investigating the math achievement and learning of Montessori students and alumni have not consistently found Montessori programmes to be more effective than conventional or other programmes. Through a detailed review of such studies, we find that a Montessori advantage in math is more likely when programmes adhere to important principles of Montessori education, when students have had longer immersion in Montessori programmes, and when assessments are more conceptual in nature. We suggest that future research should take into account programme fidelity and enrolment duration, and outline other directions for future research.

Freiarbeit und Leistung in der Montessori-Pädagogik [Free Work and Achievement in Montessori Pedagogy]

Montessori method of education - Criticism, interpretation, etc.

See More

Abstract/Notes: In diesem Band wird an 24 Praxis-Beispielen aus der Montessori-Freiarbeit – allesamt erprobt und mit zahlreichen Fotos veranschaulicht – aufgezeigt, wie Leistung in der Freiarbeit gewertschätzt und bewertet werden kann. Vor dem Hintergrund Maria Montessoris Verständnisses vom Kind und seiner Leistung, sich selbst zu erschaffen und weiterzuentwickeln, wird der pädagogische Leistungsbegriff erläutert und mit den gesellschaftlichen Ansprüchen verknüpft. Die Forderung einer Kompetenzorientierung, nach der sich eine Leistungsbewertung ausrichten sollte, wird unter die Lupe genommen und mit der Freiarbeit im Sinne Maria Montessoris verbunden. [This volume uses 24 practical examples from Montessori free work - all tried and tested and illustrated with numerous photos - to show how performance in free work can be valued and evaluated. Against the background of Maria Montessori's understanding of the child and its ability to create and develop itself, the educational concept of achievement is explained and linked to social demands. The demand for a competence orientation, according to which a performance assessment should be based, is examined closely and linked to free work in the sense of Maria Montessori.]

Abstract/Notes: Preschool education is an important and much studied topic in developed countries, and of growing importance in the third world. Studies exploring preschool experience have noted positive effects when comparing children with access to preschool versus children without access, and effects of particular curriculum approaches over the length of primary schooling. This study adopts a focused sample, cross‐sectional design to explore the types of preschool experience available (denoted by types of preschool activities which equate broadly to curriculum approaches) and whether variation in preschool experience affects core curriculum (English, science, mathematics) performance and classroom behaviours throughout the years of primary schooling in Trinidad and when children complete their primary education in the form of a national ‘common entrance examination’ for entry into a stratified secondary school system. Results show that a large majority of the sampled children attended preschool and that most of the preschool experience was traditional and teacher centred. Neither child centred or teacher centred preschool activities affected academic performance in the core subjects during the primary school years or at the end of their primary school career. Type of preschool activity did affect teacher perception of behaviour in class. Child centred experience facilitated a social/peer orientation in children. High levels of teacher centred experience detracted from later relationships with teacher. Results were confounded by social class, with middle class children having most access to (the limited amount available) child centred preschool experience and performing at the highest academic and behavioural levels in the classroom although in limited numbers. The discussion questions the appropriacy of the various preschool activities for pupils within a cultural orientation of traditional upbringing and primary schooling practices.

Abstract/Notes: The changes in the social and economic structure of India have intensified the need for universal early childhood education. The formidable challenges before the Indian Government are: to provide high quality early childhood education programs; to preserve indigenous practices such as multilinguality, family/community involvement, participation of older children as caretakers of their younger siblings; and to provide early childhood education to all children despite serious financial constraints. This article presents a brief overview of the traditional childrearing practices in India, chronicles government initiatives in early childhood education, describes the range of programs available in India, and identifies goals that will shape the future of early childhood programs in India.
