Abstract/Notes: This chapter outlines the centrality of cosmic education to the Montessori approach for children ages 6 to 12. The chapter examines how cosmic fables, elaborated with Mario Montessori and other collaborators, foster active and participatory experiences. However, in a broader context, cosmic education is a framework within which the entire work of Maria Montessori can be considered. It is the original nucleus of her thought, starting from the early years of the twentieth century. It considers each aspect of a person in relation to every other living form on the planet, including the history of the world, origins of the cosmos, and the role of humans. By extension, it incorporates the history of civilizations and cultures into an educational philosophy with an ultimate goal of universal cooperation, the affirmation of democracy, and ultimately world peace.

Abstract/Notes: Educational researchers are increasingly focused on evidence-based and holistic classroom assessment practices that encompass the teacher’s understanding of clear purposes and targets for assessment, as well as appropriate methodologies to yield accurate results and improve outcomes for all children. Montessori educators’ child-centered approach to observing and documenting children’s learning are aligned with formative-assessment practices like portfolios, which are assessments that take place throughout the learning process and which researchers are showing yield strong benefits for student learning. In addition, Montessori learning materials contain elements of embedded assessment designed to give evaluative feedback directly to the student as a natural part of the learning process. This chapter provides an overview of Montessori classroom assessment, discusses observation as the integral assessment strategy in Montessori education, assessment embedded in Montessori materials, and outlines current directions in Montessori assessment.

Abstract/Notes: This study was conducted to examine the effects of exploratory play in nature combined with locally based, environmental education (EE), on the environmental literacy (EL) of students in a lower elementary Montessori classroom. The study included one lower elementary Montessori classroom consisting of 24 students of which there were 12 girls and 12 boys, ranging from six to nine years of age. Activities consisted of environmental games, environmental art, lessons and activities that were designed to develop knowledge of the flora and fauna in and around the school. Lessons were followed with opportunities to write/draw reflections on lesson content or complete additional research. Data included questionnaires completed by students before and after the study, parent surveys, student interviews, teacher observations, and samples of student work. Though there were limitations of cold weather and time period, data demonstrated an increase in environmental literacy during the course of the study.
