Abstract/Notes: "La famosa Dottoressa Maria Montessori che si trova attualmente a Los Angeles e celebre in tutto il mondo per il suo noto sistema di educazione che da essa ha preso il nome, sarà far noi a cominciare dal primo agosto. La illustre educatrice inizierà subito un corso di lezioni pratiche alla Esposizione a beneficio della gioventù femminile della città e dello Stato che è ansiosissima di imparare e conoscere i metodi di educazione che essa ha reso celebri e popolari. Delle classi saranno istituite nel Palazzo dell'Educazione nel Padiglione Italiano e, forse, nella Scuola Normale della città. Fanno parte della Commissione incaricata di organizzare i corsi della Dottoressa Montessori il Dr. Claxton, il Dr. Jordan, Dr. Adelaide Brown, Dr. Mariana Bertola, presidente del Club Vittoria Colonna e Miss Margaret Wilson, figlia del Presidente. Parecchi Commissari esteri hanno messo a disposizione della signora Montessori i padiglioni delle rispettive nazioni e qualcuna di queste gentili offerte sarà forse accettata. Le lezioni saranno tenute nella mattinata di modo che tutti possano assistervi, una avrà luogo nel Palazzo dell'Educazione ed una nel Padiglione Italiano. Intanto i directtori dell'Esposizione hanno deciso che il giorno 21 agosto sia fissato come il "Montessori Day". Il programma per tale giorno non è stato ancora fissato. Sarà reso noto al pubblico che gli aspiranti alle classi Montessori possono inoltrare la loro domanda quanto vogliono e che i bambini dell'età dai 3 anni ai 6 anni che non abbiano avuto precendente educazione scolastica e che si trovino in buone condizioni fisiche e mentali saranno accettati nelle classi. Le applicazioni devono essere fatte a Wallace Hatch, 2612, Parker st., Berkeley, Cal. Non vi è alcuna tassa per frequentare queste classi e le maestro saranno scelte fra coloro che hanno lavorato qualche anno sotto la guida di Mme Montessori e che sono quindi al corrente dei suoi metodi di educazione. La Signora Montessori sopraintenderà questo lavoro delle sue collaboratrici." / "The famous Doctor Maria Montessori, who is currently in Los Angeles, and celebrated all over the world for her well-known education system that takes its name from her, will be visiting us starting from August 1st. The illustrious educator will immediately begin a course of practical lessons at the Exposition for the benefit of the female youth of the city and the State who are very eager to learn and know the methods of education that she has made famous and popular. Classes will be set up in the Education Building, in the Italian Pavilion and, perhaps, in the city's Normal School. The Commission responsible for organizing Dr. Montessori's courses are Dr. Claxton, Dr. Jordan, Dr. Adelaide Brown, Dr. Mariana Bertola, president of the Vittoria Colonna Club and Miss Margaret Wilson, daughter of the President. Several foreign commissioners have made the pavilions of their respective countries available to Madame Montessori and some of these kind offers will perhaps be accepted. Lessons will be held in the morning so that everyone can attend them, one will take place in the Education Building and one in the Italian Pavilion. Meanwhile, the directors of the Exposition have decided that August 21 will be set as "Montessori Day." The schedule for that day has not yet been fixed. It will be made known to the public that aspirants to Montessori classes can submit their application as much as they want and that children aged 3 to 6 who have not had prior school education and who are in good physical and mental condition will be accepted in the classes. Applications must be made to Wallace Hatch, 2612, Parker st., Berkeley, Cal. There is no fee to attend these classes and the teachers will be chosen from among those who have worked for a few years under the guidance of Mme Montessori and are therefore aware of her education methods. Madame Montessori will supervise this work of her collaborators."

The collected data were subjected to `t` analysis and the major findings of the study revealed that the students of Montessori Method of education has significantly higher self-esteem and significantly lower academic anxiety compared to traditional school students.

Education for Conflict – Education for Peace

Abstract/Notes: This paper contrasts the use of education for conflict with the use of education for peace, shows some historical developments in the field of peace education, and summarizes facets and the diffusion of peace education. The paper explores some considerations for learning environments suitable for peace education programs and describes selected features of two schools to illustrate the implementation of some of the characteristics of peace education. It explains that, although college offerings in peace education worldwide demonstrate the scarcity of peace education programs in mainstream educational institutions, a Web site listing colleges and universities that offer peace studies programs shows approximately 120 graduate and undergraduate programs, most of which are located in North America. The paper notes that in public schools, peace education can at best be found in the international education or conflict resolution programs designed to prevent school violence. Appended is a reference list of peace education Web sites, selected by the U.S. Department of Education. (Contains 27 references.)

Abstract/Notes: Avec plus ou moins de prégnance, la pédagogie Montessori reste à la mode depuis plus d'un siècle. Entre les avis très laudatifs et les critiques les plus acerbes, que savons-nous de celle qui a inventé une méthode pédagogique, basée sur une expérience unique, la Casa dei Bambini, et qui a traversé le temps avec aussi peu de modifications ? Ce texte vise à éclairer les dimensions idéologique, épistémologique et spirituelle sur lesquelles s’appuient la doctrine et la méthode. En évitant les controverses stériles, nous montrerons en quoi, si la méthode présente un intérêt indéniable, certains points nécessitent une clarification. [With varying degrees of significance, Montessori pedagogy remained trendy for more than a century. Between the very laudatory opinions and the sharpest critics, what do we know about the one who invented a pedagogical method based on a unique experience, the Casa dei Bambini, who has transcended time with few changes? This text aims to enlighten the ideological, epistemological and spiritual dimensions on which the doctrine and the method are based. By avoiding sterile controversies, we will show how, if the method is of undeniable interest, certain points require clarification.]

Abstract/Notes: Les approches centrées sur la personne constituent, dans l'accompagnement des personnes atteintes de démence, un courant humaniste fort et en plein essor. Néanmoins, les grands principes peuvent parfois être difficiles à traduire en actions concrètes sur le terrain. La méthode Montessori adaptée aux personnes âgées représente en essence une mise en œuvre de la vision des approches centrées sur la personne. Dans ce travail, nous nous intéresserons à son application par les professionnels de l'accompagnement des personnes âgées, en tant qu'approche centrée sur la personne, à un niveau individuel et collectif. Dans une première partie, nous effectuerons une revue détaillée de la littérature scientifique sur la méthode Montessori adaptée aux personnes âgées et ses liens avec les approches centrées sur la personne. Dans une seconde étude, nous nous intéresserons aux conditions d'application des principes Montessori à un niveau individuel dans le contexte de l'évaluation de personnes présentant des troubles cognitifs sévères, en utilisant la Montessori Assessment System et en nous intéressant à l'impact potentiel des troubles du comportement sur son administration. Dans une troisième étude, nous construirons un questionnaire visant à évaluer l'application des principes Montessori à l'échelle collective au sein d'institutions accompagnant des personnes âgées. Nous réaliserons une étude multi-centrique de validation (validité inter-juges, validité discriminante, cohérence interne). [Person-centered care in dementia care represents a strong and booming humanistic movement. However, its principles may be challenging to apply concretely on the field. The Montessori method for people with dementia is, in essence, an attempt to apply the philosophy and vision of person-centered care. In this work, we will focus on the application of the Montessori method for people with dementia by staff in dementia care, at an individual and collective level, as a person-centered approach. In a first part, we will make a detailed and review the scientific literature about Montessori for dementia and its links with person-centered care. In a second study, we will focus on the application conditions of Montessori principles at an individual level, in the context of assessment of person with severe dementia with the Montessori Assessment System. More specifically, we will observe the impact of behavioral disturbances on its administration. In a third study, we will create a questionnaire to assess Montessori principles application at a collective and institutional level, in nursing homes for persons with dementia. We will assess its validity (inter-rater reliability, discriminant validity, internal consistency) in a multi-center study.]
