This Book Is Anti-Racist: Notes from a Young Reader

Abstract/Notes: Jewell approaches the topic through an intersectional lens, using gender-neutral terms to ensure that each person reading the book feels represented. Rather, the work is a lifelong process that perpetually offers opportunities to learn, grow, make mistakes, and expand our understanding of the bias, predispositions, and prejudice inherent in our culture. [...]as I mentioned before, this book is just one step in the lifelong j ourney of antiracism on an individual level and as a society.

Abstract/Notes: The low level of reading comprehension in elementary school students can certainly affect their learning motivation in the learning process. To overcome this problem, this study aims: to investigate the effect of the Montessori-based Big Book on understanding Early Reading Skills and Learning Motivation. Quasi-experimental design was applied in this study. There were 26 students (14 males and 12 females) from SDN Pucang 4 as an experimental group and 23 students (13 males and 10 females) from SDN Pucang 2 were included as a control group. Data analysis in this study used an independent sample t-test with a significance level of 0.05. The results showed that students in the experimental group had higher scores better than the control group. This shows that the Montessori-based Big Book significantly promotes understanding of Early Reading Skills and Learning Motivation in the experimental group compared to control group students.

A Montessori Teacher's Guide to the Development of the Self: A Handbook

Available from: ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

Abstract/Notes: A teacher’s understanding of themselves has a great impact on their emotional well-being and job satisfaction. Teachers who have a good understanding of themselves, have intrapersonal intelligence, emotional intelligence, self-awareness, emotional competence, a well-developed identity and self-concept. Teachers who have a good understanding of themselves have positive classroom management, teaching effectiveness, relations with students, self-actualization, and self-fulfillment. However, a teacher’s understanding of themselves is not something emphasized in teacher training programs. The research led to the creation of a handbook to help teachers understand their emotions, values, and beliefs to increase their effectiveness in the classroom. Participants reported that the handbook helped them increase their self-awareness.

Practical Partnership: An Interactive Montessori Elementary Handbook for Teachers and Parents

Available from: ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: Parent-teacher partnership could dramatically improve educational outcomes for students (Bikmaz & Guler, 2003; Epstein, 2001). However, most teachers and parents lack knowledge and resources for creating this relationship (Christenson, 2004; Epstein, 2001; Henderson & Mapp, 2002). The interactive handbook is a tool for Montessori elementary educators and parents that addresses the common barriers to connection and develops a partnership to provide a continuation of lessons and values from the classroom to the home. The implementation is focused on the Montessori elementary context as it correlates to the "cosmic education" philosophy. Current parents and teachers in the public and private sector of Montessori elementary education evaluated the handbook, and their feedback was incorporated to be the most relevant and effective tool possible.

The Multiage Handbook: A Comprehensive Resource for Multiage Practices

See More

Abstract/Notes: Studies have criticized age-graded schools as creating a barrier to meeting the goals of equity and instructional excellence in schools. This handbook provides research on multiage classroom practices and argues that a multiage system better addresses and meets students' needs. Information is presented on the following topics: educational reform, parental education, cooperation in implementation, class size, multiyear teaching, grouping for purpose, time challenges, thematic planning, multiple intelligences, music in the multiage classroom, physical education in the multiage classroom, art in the multiage classroom, student-directed learning, assessment, and several case studies of working multiage classrooms. A large section of the handbook contains profiles from 13 working multiage classroom schools. Sample information from these schools includes report cards, assessment tools, curriculum outlines, sample letters to parents, grant requests, and bibliographies. A glossary of
