Abstract/Notes: It is definitely decided that Madame Montessori, expert on child psychology and child education, will hold classes in the Oregon building beginning August 1. She will give a series of lectures and demonstrations in several of the state and foreign buildings, and will open in the Oregon building. It is said that she will conduct a training course, when her method of teaching will be submitted to an international jury, and the most practical features offered for permanent use in this country. It has been said frequently that Madame Montessori's method was not adaptable to American children. It will undoubtedly be found that under her direct management the obstacles will be eliminated. She will have classes of children between the ages of 3 and 6, who have never been taught in any school by any method. The classes will be held in the forenoon, and already parents are beginning to besiege the office of her manager with requests that their children be the fortunate ones to come under the madame's influence. The lecture will be open to the public. In the Oregon building they will probably be held in the dancing pavilion. Instrumental in bringing Madame Montessori to the exposition are Dr. P. P. Claxton, Commission of Education; Dr. David Starr Jordan, president of the National Educational Association; Dr. Adelaide Brown, of San Francisco; Mariana Bertola, president of the Vittoria Colonna Club, and Margaret Wilson, daughter of President Wilson. Wallace Hatch, of 2612 Park street, Berkeley, is managing the work, and any request for information or for the entering of children in the classes should be addressed to him.
Nature-Based Education in the Light of Montessori Philosophy: Meaning, Principles and Practices
Available from: European Journal of Alternative Education Studies
Publication: European Journal of Alternative Education Studies, vol. 8, no. 1
Abstract/Notes: The subject of the article is the role of nature in learning as an essential part of the Montessori Philosophy in early childhood education. This article highlights the use of nature-based activities within Montessori’s pedagogical perspective for including content about the natural world in early childhood settings. In this paper, it is aimed to increase the awareness of learning through nature on child development and to disseminate nature-based practices used in line with the Montessori approach in preschools. Firstly, the role of nature as an educational tool is described, followed by an understanding of nature pedagogy and its educational value according to Maria Montessori. Additionally, the article reviews the implementation of nature-based learning activities as an integral part of the educational work in Montessori schools. In this educational stream, nature-related work stands as the main methodical means for early childhood education and supporting the development of children. Nature in itself serves as a kind of special resonance and restorative effect that can help children understand the world and impart meaning to their lives. Subsequently, recommendations for nature-based practices that can be applied in preschools were presented in light of the Montessori philosophy. Article visualizations:

Teaching the "Ineducable": The Impact of Sensationalist Philosophy on Educational Thought and Practice
Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association
Abstract/Notes: The paper traces the influence of theories of J. Locke, J. Rousseau and the Abbe de Condillac on the development of educational programs for persons with mental retardation under J. Itard and E. Seguin. Itard's emphasis on sensory activities is discussed, as is his collaboration with Seguin. The effects of their work on M. Montessori, specifically on her stress on the senses of touch and vision are considered. Contemporary practices which emphasize sensory training are traced to these earlier theorists. Appended materials include illustrations of Montessori's sandpaper letters, Sequin's texture board and training apparatuses, and gymnastic exercises designed to improve perceptual motor development.
