Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori describes to her students on this London course how she worked with young adolescents and 10-year-olds on a poem of Italy’s greatest poet Dante. The children became fascinated with the Divine Comedy in which the poet relates of his journey through the regions of the dead—Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. Such high and intricate literature is usually considered as far beyond young children. This poem of Dante is full of philosophy, full of references to historical events, but what the children felt was an utter communion with the spirit of the poem and the poet.

Abstract/Notes: The paper presents a description and comparison of the undergraduate student teacher training and kindergarten teacher continuing education in the Montessori Method of Education encompassed in formal education in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. The theoretical part of the paper aims at depicting Montessori education, still an attractive pedagogical direction in both countries, in a thorough, unconventional and innovative way. Even though Montessori education has been rooted worldwide for centuries, in Slovakia and the Czech Republic it presents relatively new alternative education, considering that an integrated school system, introduced in these countries in 1948 and lasting almost to the end of20thcentury, did not allow the use of other alternatives in addition to the mainstream education. A description of (preschool) education in both countries and an analysis of kindergarten teacher's personality and his/her lesson plans are included in the theoretical part of the paper. The empirical part contains pedagogical research of qualitative design, conducted in Slovakia and the Czech Republic in order to identify and map the current state, level and possibilities of formal education of pre-service and in-service teachers in Slovak and Czech kindergartens.

Abstract/Notes: Followers of Maria Montessori become accustomed to the oft-repeated stories that drive home a point, but here is a new treasure. This lecture tells of an experiment that Montessori began with 12- to 14-year-old children and then with 10-year-olds. When the poetry of Dante was introduced to these students, they became passionate and grew to love the "Divine Comedy." Montessori showed the students that the verses were written in threes and that each line of poetry contained eleven syllables. This linguistic understanding led to analysis and exploration using dictation, circles to mark the syllables, and ultimately to the memorization of entire cantos and performances. In this lecture, Montessori inspires us to experiment, to reach for the best, and to challenge students. The Dante experiment embraced philosophy, history, theology, and poetry and deeply touched the emotions of the children.

Report

Coordinating Montessori and traditional education through the use of units focused on a skill based competency and training staff to be goal directed

See More

Abstract/Notes: This report discusses the implementation of a unit-based instructional method at three child care centers. Two of the centers were Montessori schools and one was a traditional school. The centers were operated by a single corporate owner. A questionnaire completed by the 14 staff members of the 3 centers indicated that there was little year-long planning, scheduling, or use of learning units in the centers. A series of workshops held for staff addressed the issues of the creation of a year-long lesson plan, the use of goals and concepts in teaching, and teacher training. Objectives accomplished by these workshops included: (1) monthly unit studies were created to cover a school year; (2) a list of concepts to be taught each week was created; (3) daily lesson plans were developed; and (4) teachers were trained to use the lesson plans to become more goal oriented in their daily routines. An extensive discussion of existing early childhood education programs and models is presented. A reference list of 21 items is provided. Appendixes include copies of staff questionnaires; lists of unit themes and concepts; forms for recording student progress; and forms for recording weekly and monthly lesson plans. (BC)
