Doctoral Dissertation

A Hermeneutic Exploration: Designing Grassroots Montessori Teacher Education Courses for Resource Limited Communities

Available from: ProQuest - Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study documents a Montessori teacher education program in three Nicaraguan villages. In each village, the researcher observed the implementation of a teacher education program designed by Montessori Phoenix Projects, and carried out research conversations with local participants. The data collection process spanned a period of one and one-half years. The resulting framework is designed to inform the implementation of grassroots teacher education courses serving resource-limited communities. The framework presents learning points essential for teacher education programs appropriate to childhood education within the Montessori tradition in resource-limited communities. These points include creating context, identifying breakdowns, generating possibility, and using a mimetic construct of time in curriculum development. Additionally, the results of this research offer insights for evaluation, arguments for the essential incorporation of tradition in socioeducational development, and methods in which collaboration with community members, NGOs, and educational authorities can move beyond the limitations of traditional forms of development. The works of Arendt, Gadamer, Geertz, Habermas, Herda, and Ricoeur inform the research and analysis. The research framework is comprised of the theoretical constructs of breakdowns (Arendt 1961), mimesis (Ricoeur 1984), and dissipation (Janstch 1980). Within this framework ontological resources are brought to light and serve as the progenesis to make new the old environment and bring imagined worlds of possibility to life. By converting breakdowns into new, recognizable forms through everyday language, options carrying hope for the future become visible. A critical aspect of these options involves understanding another's world. This study presents a unique model for making a difference in the lives of people who live in culturally diverse communities. Moreover, the model is not burdened by the traditional budget and personnel restraints associated with most development models. The framework presented in this dissertation may assist education reform consultants who work in developing countries and who are committed to give a voice to those people who commonly are not heard.

Abstract/Notes: Innovative competency-based education in adolescents’ communities is one of the most challenging thins of the new millennium. Researchers from all over the world are trying to find models of competency-based education for the young and adolescent students. In this paper, starting with the last available data of the OECD Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), the authors are analyzing the results using a linear regression modeling. Their findings reveal that there is an inverse relationship between the science performance and the total study time in after school hours. One solution that the authors give is the alternative education in general and boarding school within the alternative Montessori educational system. The novelty of the paper is the econometric analysis of the data obtained by students in PISA tests and the use of these results to achieve an innovative education based on skills in adolescent communities. The results of this work could be used both by parents to choose a suitable school for their children and for the governors, to create a national educational ecosystem based on the development of adolescents' skills.

Abstract/Notes: Tom Wessel's view of interdependent local ecologies lays out a conceptual framework for human communities and corporations. His rich examples of biodiversity provide great metaphors for how competition and negative conditions can be transformed by natural cooperation and can lead to self-organized, self-managed natural communities that are sustained by emergent systems and can co-evolve.
