Abstract/Notes: Under 1900-talets första decennier vann den italienska läkaren Maria Montessori berömmelse som pedagogisk förnyare. Den frihetliga andan och mönstergilla disciplinen i hennes förskolor och skolor slog omvärlden med häpnad. Men Montessori skulle inte bara lansera en ny pedagogik. Under mellankrigstiden, när hennes metod fick stort genomslag internationellt, påtog hon sig rollen som kulturkritisk rörelseledare. Med paroller om barnets frigörelse och samhällets rekonstruktion värvade rörelsen många entusiastiska anhängare. I dåtida press talades det om montessorism i liknande ordalag som man talade om feminism, freudianism och marxism. Förväntningarna på vad montessorismen skulle kunna åstadkomma också utanför skolportarna var höga. I Montessoris pedagogiska imperium belyser Christine Quarfood, utifrån ett omfattande historiskt källmaterial, Montessorirörelsen som kulturkritisk och opinionsbildande strömning. Boken lyfter fram det mångfasetterade i rörelsens budskap, utöver den psykopedagogiska tematiken också den politiskt och socialt laddade problematik kring makt- och auktoritetsfrågor, krig och fred som adresseras i rörelsens skrifter. Huvudfokus ligger på mottagandet i de länder där rörelsen fick störst genomslag, USA vid tiden kring första världskriget, England under 1920-talet, samt Mussolinis Italien, där Montessorirörelsen fick fascistregimens stöd från 1926 till 1934. / During the first decades of the 20th century, the Italian physician Maria Montessori gained fame as an educational innovator. The liberal spirit and exemplary discipline of her preschools and schools amazed the outside world. But Montessori would not just launch a new pedagogy. During the interwar period, when her method had a major impact internationally, she took on the role of culturally critical movement leader. With slogans about the child's liberation and the reconstruction of society, the movement recruited many enthusiastic supporters. In the press of that time, Montessori was spoken of in similar terms as feminism, Freudianism, and Marxism. Expectations of what Montessori could achieve outside the school gates were high. In Montessori's educational empire, Christine Quarfood, based on extensive historical source material, highlights the Montessori movement as a culturally critical and opinion-forming current. The book highlights the multifaceted in the movement's message, in addition to the psychopedagogical theme also the politically and socially charged issues around power and authority issues, war and peace that are addressed in the movement's writings. The main focus is on reception in the countries where the movement had the greatest impact, the United States during the First World War, England in the 1920s, and Mussolini's Italy, where the Montessori movement received the support of the fascist regime from 1926 to 1934.

Abstract/Notes: Learning Outcome: Upon completion, participants will be able to describe the relationship between Montessori teachers’ cultural food competence, teacher-parent communication and classroom nutrition practices. || Objective: Assess relationships between Montessori teachers’ cultural food competence, teacher-parent nutrition communication, perceived nutrition beliefs and classroom nutrition practices || Design: Pre-test data was obtained from participants enrolled in The T.E.A.C.H. Study, a nutrition program for Montessori teachers, using validated questionnaires to assess nutrition knowledge (NK), nutrition teaching self-efficacy (NTSE),teaching practices, teacher-parent communication (TPC), classroom food practices, & cultural food competence (CFC). ||Participants: Teachers (n=98) were recruited from Montessori schools across the US. Subjects were predominantly female (98%), White (84.7%), non-Hispanic (57.1%). || Statistical Analysis: Descriptives and correlations conducted using SPSS v.26 || Results: CFC was positively associated with TPC (r=.396, p<.001), NTSE (r=.233, p=.021), & providing nutrition education (r=.292, p=.004). However,few teachers "strongly agreed" that they provide nutrition education in their classrooms (14.3%), while the majority had low CFC (67.4%) and reported low amounts of TPC (77.8%). Furthermore, teachers had low NK (average score: 65%)which was positively correlated with NTSE (r=.478, p<.001) and low-fat/sugar food intake (r=.295, p=.003). NK was inversely associated with TPC (r=.270, p=.007), sugary drinks intake (r=-.249, p=.014), using food rewards (r=-.507, p<.001) & permitting unhealthy foods (r=-.356, p<.001). || Conclusion: Montessori teachers’ cultural food competence may impact teacher-parent communication and classroom practices. Teachers with higher cultural competence were more likely to discuss nutrition with parents and provide nutrition education; however, paradoxically nutrition knowledge was inversely associated with teacher-parent communication. With ethnic diversity increasing in schools, cultural nutrition programs would be beneficial to improve teachers’ classroom nutrition practices and parent communication.
