Abstract/Notes: Attraverso l’utilizzo di un’ampia documentazione, basata su fonti bibliografiche e archivistiche, nel presente saggio è stato individuato un filo conduttore tra due personalità femminili, tra loro molto diverse, anche dal punto di vista generazionale: Maria Montessori e Margherita Zoebeli. Le loro iniziative in campo educativo, rispettivamente durante la prima e la seconda guerra mondiale, si svilupparono a partire dai bisogni di un’infanzia segnata tragicamente dagli eventi bellici. Proprio nelle loro esperienze è possibile individuare il fulcro vitale e propulsivo di quella che oggi viene definita “pedagogia dell’emergenza”. / In this essay, through the use of an extensive documentation, based on bibliographical and archival sources, a red thread has been identified between two female personalities, who are very different from each other, not only from a generational point of view: Maria Montessori e Margherita Zoebeli. Their initiatives in the educational field, respectively during the first and the second world war, developed starting from the needs of a childhood tragically marked by the war. In their experiences it is possible to find the cornerstone of what we can define today as “Emergency Pedagogy”.

A 3-Year Study Of Self-Regulation In Montessori And Non-Montessori Classrooms

Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 22, no. 2

Pages: 22-31

Abstract/Notes: Albert Bandura, the leading pioneer in the study of self-regulation, has defined the term as the child's ability to self-educate, self-direct, regulate motivation, and learn to think about what she is learning (1994). Lev Vygotsky's theory that children can be taught to think independently about how to solve problems expands upon Bandura's work (1978). Though Montessori did not use the term "self-regulation," the descriptions of inner discipline, or "normalization," in her writings are clearly related to this concept. Because Montessori classrooms emphasize developing behaviors associated with self-regulation, Lander University's Montessori Teacher Education Program chose to focus on this as a topic of research in a 3-year study funded by a 2004 congressionally directed grant. Findings showed positive results for Montessori children in ratings of self-regulation and academic performance which affirm the effectiveness of Montessori classroom practice in fostering positive work habits and internal motivation. The authors hope that these results will lead more public school administrators, particularly those in small rural settings where programs of school choice are rare, to consider Montessori a viable option.

Seniorenarbeit nach Maria Montessori [Work for Seniors According to Maria Montessori]

Gerontology, Montessori method of education

Abstract/Notes: Jutta Hollander stellt in diesem Buch zunächst die wesentlichen Prinzipien der Pädagogik Maria Montessoris in Kindheit und Jugend vor. In einem nächsten Schritt setzt sie sich mit der Frage auseinander, inwiefern sich diese Leitlinien auch auf die gesamte Lebensspanne übertragen lassen. Schwerpunktmäßig nimmt sie dabei die Altersphase in den Blick und sucht nach Möglichkeiten einer konvergenten Annäherung zwischen der Montessori-Pädagogik und Gerontologie. Auf diesem Wege entsteht eine Annäherung, die die über 100jährige Erfahrung mit der Pädagogik Maria Montessoris mit den aktuell drängenden demografischen Fragen zusammenbringt. Wie diese Idee schließlich Eingang in die verschiedenen Bereiche der Gerontologie - insbesondere in die Geragogik finden kann, und wie diese Potentiale entwickelt und in der Praxis genutzt werden können, wird exemplarisch am Beispiel der Hausgemeinschaft gezeigt. [In this book, Jutta Hollander first presents the essential principles of Maria Montessori's pedagogy in childhood and adolescence. In a next step, she deals with the question to what extent these guidelines can also be transferred to the entire lifespan. She focuses on the age phase and looks for possibilities of a convergent approach between Montessori pedagogy and gerontology. In this way, an approach is created that brings together more than 100 years of experience with Maria Montessori's pedagogy with the currently pressing demographic issues. How this idea can finally find its way into the various areas of gerontology - especially in geragogics, and how this potential can be developed and used in practice, is shown using the example of the household community.]

Abstract/Notes: Le rivoluzioni scientifiche dei primi decenni del Novecento misero in discussione i principi del paradigma classico della scienza e della natura. Maria Montessori comprese in profondità queste rivoluzioni, e intuì la necessità di un nuovo paradigma, capace di superare il modo di pensare per dicotomie (oggetto/soggetto, mente/corpo, organismo/ambiente, specie/ecosistema, natura/cultura, res cogitans/res extensa). Anticipò nella sua teoria e nella sua azione pedagogica e sociale i lineamenti di una epistemologia relazionale, sistemica ed evolutiva, che avrebbe poi conosciuto un pieno sviluppo a partire dagli ultimi decenni del secolo: un’epistemologia della complessità, all’interno di un orizzonte umanistico planetario. È questo l’orizzonte epistemologico e umanistico nel quale, con coraggio e immaginazione, Maria Montessori delineò la sua idea di «bambino cosmico» e di «educazione cosmica», e nel cui specchio oggi possiamo rileggere e rigenerare la sua idea. [The scientific revolutions of the early decades of the Twentieth century challenged the principles of the classical paradigm of science and nature. Maria Montessori deeply understood these revolutions, and realized the need for a new paradigm, able to overcome the thinking by dichotomies (object/subject, mind/body, organism/environment, species/ecosystem, nature/culture, res cogitans/res extensa). She anticipated in her theory and in her pedagogical and social action the features of a relational, systemic and evolutionary epistemology, which would later have developed starting from the last decades of the century: an epistemology of complexity, within a planetary humanistic horizon. This is the epistemological and humanistic horizon in which, with courage and imagination, Maria Montessori introduced her idea of a "cosmic child" and "cosmic education", and in whose mirror today we can reinterpret and regenerate her idea.]

Differences in Mathematics Scores Between Students Who Receive Traditional Montessori Instruction and Students Who Receive Music Enriched Montessori Instruction

Available from: Library and Archives Canada

Mathematics education, Montessori method of education - Evaluation

Abstract/Notes: While a growing body of research reveals the beneficial effects of music on education performance the value of music in educating the young child is not being recognized, particularly in the area of Montessori education. This study was an experimental design using a two-group post-test comparison. A sample of 200 Montessori students aged 3 to 5-years-old were selected and randomly placed in one of two groups. The experimental treatment was an "in-house" music enriched Montessori program and children participated in 3 half-hour sessions weekly, for 6 months. This program was designed from appropriate early childhood educational pedagogies and was sequenced in order to teach concepts of pitch, dynamics, duration, timbre, and form. The instrument used to measure mathematical achievement was the Test of Early Mathematics Ability-3 to determine if the independent variable, music instruction had any effect on students' mathematics test scores, the dependent variable. The results showed that subjects who received music enriched Montessori instruction had significantly higher mathematics scores. When compared by age group, 3 year-old students had higher scores than either the 4 or 5 year-old children.
