Abstract/Notes: This chapter looks at the consolidation of progressive education in Spain during the first third of the twentieth century and aims to unpack the question of its annihilation by the Franco regime during the civil war and the early period of the dictatorship. It starts by showing the consolidation of an active and influential pedagogical vanguard that had clear influence on the education system during the Second Republic. It then traces signs of continuity in this educational movement after the establishment of the Franco regime by classifying this evidence into three categories: utilization, undercurrent adaptation, and resistance. This chapter concludes by looking at the complexity of education during the early Franco regime, highlighting the coexistence of a school culture forged before the civil war with ideas and practices identified with National Catholicism introduced by the dictatorship. By presenting this complexity, this chapter challenges a widely accepted vision concerning the total educational backlash that came in the wake of the establishment of the dictatorship.

Abstract/Notes: If a parent were to ask what science and technology are offered in a Montessori preschool, Ginni Sackett provides a comprehensive reply. By precisely defining the words science and technology with an expansion of those definitions from renowned biologist E. O. Wilson, alongside the "experiences we offer every day to the children in our Casas," we can honestly present the Casa as rich in science and technology. The hands, the senses, and the mind cultivate both interaction with the concrete world but also cultivate the imagination and clear judgment. In this way "every material and activity…is preparing each child to follow the scientific process." [This paper was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "A Montessori Integrated Approach to Science, Mathematics, Technology, and the Environment" in Portland, OR, Mar 31-Apr 3, 2016.]
