Abstract/Notes: The following research assesses how reading and discussing stories that counter gender stereotypes can increase cooperation and decrease conflict between primary- and elementary-aged students of different genders, as well as to expand students’ conceptions of self and others beyond traditional gender expectations. The six-week study involved 50 participants total, 21 between the ages of 3 and 6 and 29 between the ages of 6 and 9 at two separate Montessori public charter schools in Minnesota. Each participant completed an activity pre- and post-intervention concerning the feminine and masculine traits that they would choose to describe themselves and those that could describe someone they’d want to be friends with. 10-minute observations were taken daily to record instances of cooperation and conflict between children of different genders. Pertinent quotes were recorded during observation periods and in discussions about the counter-stereotypical stories. Results showed an increase in the number of friendships between genders, and a greater number of traits chosen to describe selves and potential friends at the elementary school level. Further research in the area is needed to discover the long-term effects of counter-stereotypical literature, the importance of adults examining their own gender biases, and interventions beyond literature to counter patriarchal norms in classrooms.

Abstract/Notes: This study undertook to investigate the practical application of the Montessori method in London Montessori pre-schools, and how this relates to the individual teacher's interpretation of the theory underpinning the method. This entailed an examination and analysis of the understanding and attitudes of teachers towards the practicalities of Montessori theory, as well as the relationship between that interpretation and the subsequent practice. Hence the key research aimed to determine the position and attitudes of a selection of Montessori teachers in schools today...

Abstract/Notes: After completing her training in 1913, Margaret Naumburg, in her lectures and articles, portrayed a highly emotional and romanticized image of Maria Montessori. Naumburg established several Montessori schools in New York City: at the Henry Street Settlement in 1913; at the Leete School from 1914 to 1916; and in the New York public school system in 1915. Stymied by bureaucracy and inadequate funding, she abandoned her public school experiment. Moving from Montessorian principles, Naumburg identified increasingly with child-centered Progressive education but added a dimension from Jung’s Analytic Psychology which emphasized children’s need to free their emotions through imaginative, creative self-expression through art. She founded her own “Children’s School” in 1916 in New York City, subsequently renamed the Walden School. She is also famous for developing dynamically oriented Art Therapy.
