Montessori Versus Confucius - Jumping Over the Door the Fish Becomes a Dragon: Exploring the Feasibility of the Introduction of Montessori Methods into Chinese School Education

Available from: Monash University

Abstract/Notes: This treatise systematically explores the students' views of school education in Mainland China. It focuses on the feasibility of the introduction of Montessori educational ideas into Chinese school education. The study compares the opinions of the participants on the formal education system adopted in public schools in China and their views on what the Montessori method might constitute, as a prerequisite to discussing the possibility of adopting Montessori methods in these schools. Then it looks at the educational policy that favors such an introduction. The main method used in this study is a survey conducted in a local high school in the northeast of China. The participants were questioned about their satisfaction level with advanced Western educational methods and principles. The author also attempted to gain an insight into the possibility of the adoption of Montessori methods in other public schools in China. To do so, questionnaire covering such areas as learning effectiveness, teaching methods, and the curriculum have been carefully designed and distributed in several public schools. The study showed that while learning is relatively effective, the teaching methods in Mainland China are monotonous, and the curriculum is controlled by examinations. Nevertheless, the monotonous teaching methods show a trend towards being diversified. The statistics also show that those students who were subject to Montessori methods in the early childhood period were less satisfied with the relationship between students and teachers than those who were subject to the traditional teaching methods. However the former subjects are more satisfied with their classmates than are the latter. As far as the curriculum and independence in classrooms are concerned, neither group was satisfied

This book was first published in 1909 under the title 'Il Metodo della Pedagogia Scientifica Applicato all'Educazione Infantile nelle Case dei Bambini' ('The Montessori Method: Scientific Pedagogy as Applied to Child Education in the Children's Houses) and was revised in 1913, 1926, and 1935. Maria Montessori revised and reissued this book in 1948 and renamed it 'La Scoperta del Bambino'.

J. translated this Italian version into the English language in 1967 for Fides Publishers, Inc. In 2016 Fred Kelpin edited this version and added many footnotes. He incorporated new illustrations based on AMI-blueprints of the materials currently in use.

Abstract/Notes: A presente Dissertação de Mestrado, O projeto do espaço educativo - O Kindergarten na génese da escola contemporânea de Herman Hertzberger, propõe uma análise e uma reflexão dos espaços escolares projetados pelo oarquiteto holandês Herman Hertzberger (1932- ), entre 1960 e 2007. No conjunto de obras analisadas, foram destacados alguns temas projetuais caraterísticos dos espaços escolares. Estes temas encontram a própriaorigem no modelo educativo desenvolvido pela médica italiana Maria Montessori (1879-1952) no início do século XX. Nesse contexto, destacam-se os seguintes temas: 1) A polivalência da sala de aula, sendo um dos temas baseado no modelo montessoriano e de relevância nas obras do arquiteto; 2) A função distributiva e social do espaço central, assemelhando-se à piazza de Malaguzzi (1920-1994), com influências de Froebel (1782-1852); 3) A ideia de "learning street" do corredor, assumindo-se como um espaço flexível. O estudo destes temas, entre outros, tornou-se essencial para a compre ensãodas escolas de Herman Hertzberger e, consequentemente, da sua obra em geral. [This Master Thesis proposes an analysis and a reflection of school spaces designed by Dutch architect Herman Hertzberger (1932- ), between 1960 and 2007. The set of works analyzed were assigned some design themes with typical interest in school spaces. These themes have origin in the educational model developed by Italian doctor Maria Montessori (1879-1952) at the beginning of the 20th century. In this context, stands out the following themes: 1) The versatility of the classroom, one of the themes based on the educational model proposed by Maria Montessori and one of the most relevant themes in the architect's work; 2) The distributive and social functions of the central space, similar to the piazza of Malaguzzi (1920-1994), with influences from Froebel (1782-1852); 3) The idea of "learning street" of the corridor, becoming a flexible space. The study of these subjects, among others, was essential to understand Herman Hertzbergers' schools and, consequently, his work in general.]
