Abstract/Notes: Movement is life and the power for growth and development for healthy lifestyle. Poor motion or inactivity is the basis for poor development in children and morbidity and mortality in adulthood. As children grow, it is expected that certain developmental dimensions such as physical, socio-emotional and cognitive will develop. These dimensions form a very important aspect of the human life and need to be nurtured to develop appropriately. One of the means through which these dimensions could be nurtured is through body movement involving locomotive and non-locomotive motions. For proper development children need to be taken through conscious steps that will help their all-round development which primarily has been part of African communal settings for cultural integration and development. Era of technology has brought several challenges facing the active lifestyle of African Children thereby predisposing them to sedentary living and its disease risks. Some of these include mass movement from rural setting to urban settlements, use of technology and also social media, fear of the environment and security issues amongst others. There is the need to appraise the cultural effect of technology on active lifestyle of African children and reactivate a balance between technology and re-integration of cultural mediums of training and development in children’s education. To promote adequate physical movement among children, curriculum should integrate healthy cultural/physical activities in the school, and parent should encourage their children to do domestic activities and reduce the use of electronic gadgets such as electronic games, TV and labour saving devices.

Abstract/Notes: "AMERICANS ARE GIVEN PRAISE Of EDUCATOR. With the intention of establishing four great Montessori schools in California, Dr. Maria Montessori, founder of the educational system that bears her name and world famous for her intellectual achievements, today declared that Americans are more fitted for the work of advancing educational work than any other people. Dr. Montessori is established at the Maryland hotel, Pasadena, where she will make her headquarters during her visit here. One of her schools will be in Pasadena, one in Los Angeles, one in San Diego and the other in San Francisco, and all who attend to learn the famous Montessori technique will be sent from one to the other institution, to avoid routine and bo,t ways. AMERICANS PRAISED "Americans seem more interested In their young than do people of other countries, ’ Madame Montessori declared, through her interpreter, "and they are also more alert. It Is for these reasons that they embrace and develope more quickly what Is for the child's benefit. "My system Is still too new to show positive results," she continued, “but It Is founded on the desire to secure the same Justice for the child that the adult would have, and to d&relop only what Is good In child nature. CHILD BORN GOOD "A child Is born Into the world good. What it develops of wrong doing Is taught It by adults. If left to follow Its original instincts and desires it would be and do only good. 'By encouraging a child to know the Joy of right doing It will never want to do wrong. If a child's parents and teachers never give It wrong precepts It will not be guilty of wrong doing, for the Innocence of child nature is Ignorant of evil till that Is taught from the outside.'"

American Writings on Maria Montessori: An Inquiry into Changes in the Reception and Interpretations Given to Writings on Maria Montessori and Montessori Educational Ideas 1910-1915 and 1958-1970

Available from: ProQuest Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this dissertation will be to survey and analyze American writings on Maria Montessori and her educational system, in order to show how the idea of Montessori education has interacted with some changing American ideas and social forces. These changes in social and intellectual currents can be likened to a shift from centrifugal to centripetal force; or to the expansion and then the contraction of a universe. The central metaphor is the same. It is applicable to, and illustrative of, much about the changing social and educational scene in America. The writings on Montessori, examined against this framework, should provide a new view on certain changes in American educational thinking.

Abstract/Notes: Though Montessorians have existed in the United States for nearly a century, a distinctly American version of the system did not begin to take hold until the late 1950s. What was referred to at the time as the "second spring" was actually a remarkable moment not just for Montessori education, but also for American culture at large. For the Montessori movement, the years 1959 to 1963 witnessed rapid growth, turmoil, and the establishment of educational, political, and ideological patterns that still influence the movement today. In this article, the authors trace what happened in those years, why it happened, and the impact those events had on the subsequent development of Montessori education in the United States as they look at the historical context surrounding those events in order to provide a richer understanding of the origins of the American Montessori identity. A closer look at the early years of the movement reveals a complex story of two strong personalities, Mario Montessori and Nancy McCormick Rambusch, who shared a deep commitment to the Montessori ideal, and who squabbled endlessly over how to realize that ideal.
