Available from: npj Science of Learning

Publication: npj Science of Learning, vol. 2

Pages: Article 11

See More

Abstract/Notes: The Montessori educational method has existed for over 100 years, but evaluations of its effectiveness are scarce. This review paper has three aims, namely to (1) identify some key elements of the method, (2) review existing evaluations of Montessori education, and (3) review studies that do not explicitly evaluate Montessori education but which evaluate the key elements identified in (1). The goal of the paper is therefore to provide a review of the evidence base for Montessori education, with the dual aspirations of stimulating future research and helping teachers to better understand whether and why Montessori education might be effective.

Abstract/Notes: While Montessori has flourished in small private schools in Puerto Rico since the 1950s, in 1994, the island’s first public school implemented the pedagogy as a vehicle of social transformation to provide high-quality, student-centered education in which teachers, parents, and community leaders play central roles. The success of Juan Ponce de León school ignited a thirty-year-long public Montessori movement which established Montessori programs in 45 public schools (5% of Puerto Rico’s total), created a local training center, and institutionalized a Montessori Secretariat within the Department of Education. This public movement’s achievements in transforming traditionally marginalized communities through education have influenced debates on public education, democratization, and social justice in Puerto Rico and abroad.

Abstract/Notes: This study aims to analyze the interior design of a learning space based on three alternative teaching models applied nowadays. The study gathers the overall information of interior space design, alternative teaching models, children’s needs and analyzes the interaction of the three selected teaching models with classroom design, besides it suggests what educational institutions can do at a general level to contribute to the improvement of early education. The study is designed using descriptive research model, scientific observation and to collect factual data 72 teachers from Ankara (Turkey) were surveyed. Three different schools were analyzed by means of teaching model application within interior space design, a survey was administered in order to determine how classroom design supports the teaching-learning process and follows the principles of the teaching models. Research findings suggest that special attention should be given to classroom interior design since young children’s behavior and social interactions with their peers and teachers are influenced by the spatial arrangement in classrooms. Likewise if the interior design of the classroom is based on teaching models’ learning outcomes, the capacity and attitude of both teacher and student in the educational process are improved, while appropriate conditions are created for a pedagogical practice in the classroom.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori educators view inclusion as an integral component of the method, as Maria Montessori’s first classrooms were designed to provide sensory stimulation and learning experiences for students deprived of these opportunities due to perceived disabilities. Much has been written on how Montessori’s work began with disabled children and work is underway in Montessori education to include disabled children more seamlessly. This chapter traces the chronology of inclusion in Montessori pedagogy and practice beginning with its historical underpinnings and continuing with a discussion of contemporary practice with a focus on Early Childhood (ages 3 to 6).
