Montessori Method of Education in Terms of Philosophical Anthropology

Available from: ERIC

Publication: International Journal of Progressive Education, vol. 18, no. 2

Pages: 249-258

Abstract/Notes: Since its existence, the subject of man has been difficult and painful to understand. Philosophical anthropology comes to the fore as the field that deals with the essence and function of man to make sense of him. Philosophical anthropology tries to evaluate man from his birth to death. By doing so, philosophical anthropology draws on various philosophers. The process of understanding man, which started with Kant, is shaped by names such as Scheler, Cassirer, Mengüsoglu, and Hartmann. In philosophical anthropology, besides these names, Maria Montessori, who assessed man as a child, is also significant. She contributed to philosophical anthropology by actualizing theoretical structures with the Montessori method of education, which is based on the understanding of a child who stands on his/her own feet and which presents a new perspective on the man. This study is considered important in terms of grounding the aforementioned contribution and guiding future studies on the subject.

Abstract/Notes: This study investigated the acceptability and knowledge of the Montessori Method of education among early years' practitioners in Lagos State. Four research questions and one hypothesis were raised for the study. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population for the study consisted of all early years' practitioners in Lagos State while the sample comprised 126 early years practitioners which were stratified as 102 early years' practitioners (teachers) and 24 school operators (school heads/owners). In the first stage, proportionate sampling technique was used in selecting four Nursery schools from each of the six educational districts of Lagos State out of which two were Montessori Schools and the other two were non-Montessori schools. The total number of Nursery schools used for the study were twenty-four; whyile a random sampling technique was used in selecting four teachers from each Montessori school and five teachers from non-Montessori schools. Forty-eight Montessori teachers and fifty-four non-Montessori teachers were used for the study. The two researcher's designed instruments that were used to gather data for the study were Early Years' Practitioners Knowledge of Montessori Method (EYPKOMM) and School Operators Perception of Montessori Method (SOPOMM). EYPKOMM measured teachers' knowledge about the Montessori Method and it consisted of 20 close-ended items while SOPOMM consisted of 25 items on 4 point Likert scale. The study revealed that the majority of the teachers had average qualifications to work in early years' classrooms and that their knowledge of the Montessori Method is a little above average. It it also revealed school operators were enthusiastic and preferred the Montessori Method to conventional method but noted that the method is expensive to implement and too rigid to be adopted in conventional schools. It is therefore recommended that: (i) teachers seeking employment in a Montessori school should have professional training and experience; (ii) more awareness programme should be organized for early years' practitioners; (iii) The Montessori method should be adapted so that all stakeholders of education can benefit from it.

The Montessori Method of Education of the Senses: The Case of the Children’s Houses

Available from: International Journal of Research Publication and Reviews

Publication: International Journal of Research Publication and Reviews, vol. 4, no. 5

Pages: 6671-6673

Abstract/Notes: The Montessori method of teaching is founded on the idea that education should support rather than undermine a child’s natural abilities. Therefore, scientific research on children and an understanding of how development and learning work should serve as the foundation for education. A psychic force or ability is active through physical organs, causing the experience. The action of the structure acting as a proper origin and determining the force is seen from one perspective; the action of the feeling, which catches the practical and formally establishes experience, is seen from the opposite perspective. The use and development of the senses are stressed in the Montessori method. Doing this a child is observed and new ideas and methods are used to develop the senses in the child. This paper is an attempt to show the methods used by Dr. Montessori in her Children’s Houses to develop senses in children.

Abstract/Notes: El método de Montessori destaca la didáctica a través de los cinco sentidos, no sólo a través de tres de ellos como se hace tradicionalmente (escuchar, ver o leer), el docente deberá saber con previa evaluación lo que cada niño está listo para realizar. Esta enseñanza es un fascinante proceso de invención, lo que conduce a la plena concentración, la motivación y sobre todo el auto-control. El objetivo de la investigación es impulsar el hábito del auto-estudio y la autodisciplina, es decir que posibilita a que el niño trabaje con autonomía, favoreciendo el propio interés y la investigación que ayudan al niño a concentrarse en su aula; la metodología aplicada se buscó coordinar y alcanzar los objetivos propuestos mediante una investigación bibliográfica y relatos narrativos. La función del orientador fundamental es la del adulto, y en especial el padre, ya que se considera el principal guía del niño, quien es el responsable de mostrarle elmundo en sus primeros pasos. Esta enseñanza es un fascinante proceso de invención, lo que conduce a la plena concentración, la motivación y sobre todo el auto-control, los niños logran asimilar: una investigación propia e independiente, planificar, organizar, compilar información; crear: presentaciones, exposiciones y proyectos. [The Montessori method highlights the didactics through the five senses, not only through three of them as is traditionally done (listening, seeing or reading), the teacher must know with prior evaluation what each child is ready to do. This teaching is a fascinating process of invention, which leads to full concentration, motivation and above all self-control. The objective of the research is to promote the habit of self-study and self-discipline, that is, it enables the child to work with autonomy, favoring self-interest and research that help the child to concentrate in her classroom; The applied methodology sought to coordinate and achieve the proposed objectives through bibliographic research and narrative stories. The role of the fundamental guide is that of the adult, and especially the father, since she is considered the child's main guide, who is responsible for showing her the world in her first steps. This teaching is a fascinating process of invention, which leads to full concentration, motivation and above all self-control, children manage to assimilate: their own independent research, planning, organizing, compiling information; create: presentations, exhibitions and projects.]
