L’Action Philanthropique de Mary Cromwell Pendant et Après la Première Guerre Mondiale: La Méthode Montessori au Secours de la Petite Enfance [The Philanthropy of Mary Cromwell During and After the First World War: Using the Montessori Method to Rescue Early Childhood]
Available from: CAIRN
Publication: Les Études Sociales, vol. 175, no. 1
Abstract/Notes: L’article retrace l’itinéraire de la philanthrope américaine Mary Cromwell et sa participation dès le début du XXe siècle à la promotion de la méthode Montessori en France, à des moments charnières qui favorisèrent l’éclosion de réformes éducatives empreintes de progressisme dans le contexte de la Première Guerre mondiale. Loin de l’image des jardins d’enfants montessoriens accueillant les enfants des familles aisées qui fleurissent dans l’entre-deux-guerres, les classes Montessori qu’elle met en place dans les œuvres de guerre au profit de petits réfugiés révèlent une dimension curative de la pédagogie Montessori. Forte de cette expérience, Mary Cromwell tentera d’implanter la pédagogie Montessori dans les classes maternelles de l’Institution publique de l’après-guerre. / This article traces the path of the American philanthropist Mary Cromwell and her participation in the promotion of the Montessori method in France from the beginning of the twentieth century, at pivotal moments that fostered the emergence of progressive educational reforms in the context of the First World War. Far from the image of the Montessori kindergartens for children from wealthy families that flourished between the two wars, the Montessori classes that she set up in war charities for the benefit of child refugees revealed a curative dimension of Montessori pedagogy. Based on this experience, Mary Cromwell then attempted to implement Montessori pedagogy in the kindergarten classes of the post-war public institutions.
The Effects of Multiage Grouping on Verbal Interaction, Achievement and Self-Concept
Annual Conference of the American Association of School Administrators (112th, Anaheim, California, February 15-18, 1980)
Abstract/Notes: Two studies were conducted on the effects of multiage classrooms. The first study investigated verbal interaction among children of different age groups and student-teacher interaction in multiage classrooms. Existing multiage classrooms in various settings were observed and information was recorded on the ages of the children initiating and receiving each interaction, the number of children in each age group who initiated interactions to the teacher, and the number of children in each age group who were present in the classroom. Interactions were classified as dominant, submissive, or neutral. Results indicate: (1) older children tended to initiate proportionately more interactions when three ages were grouped together, but not when only two ages were grouped together; (2) children of one age did not dominate the teacher's attention; (3) interaction within age groups was high and interaction between age groups was low when three age groups were present, but not when two age groups

Interaction of Environmental Education and Montessori Pedagogy
Available from: MINDS@UW River Falls
Abstract/Notes: Research shows that environmental education and time outdoors increase social emotional, cognitive, and physical health. We know it’s important to start early and to use a holistic systems-based lens. While research is underway in traditional early childhood programs, research is lacking on how environmental education is implemented and practiced in Montessori early childhood programs. The purpose of the study is to integrate information on the philosophical underpinnings of environmental education with Montessori philosophy and pedagogy, create a questionnaire to examine the implementation of environmental education in Montessori early childhood programming, and pilot the questionnaire to gather information through educators’ responses to systems-based environmental education-framed questions on teacher’s understanding of environmental education, program and pedagogical practices, health promotion, social systems education, natural systems education, and barriers to implementation. Special attention was paid to constructivism, realism mixed with wonder, interdisciplinary practices, biophilia versus ecophobia, critical pedagogy of place, local versus global awareness, and the use of play. A pilot questionnaire was created and sent out via the Internet; 43 questionnaires were returned with sufficient information and analyzed using descriptive statistics and qualitative methods. The results are included in full to support continuing conversation about the interaction between environmental education and Montessori pedagogy. Final discussion highlights discrepancies between the philosophical foundations of Montessori pedagogy and environmental education and the reported practices.
