Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to determine effective ways to improve fluency among lower elementary Montessori students. The study was comprised of 33 students ages 6-9 who attend public Montessori classrooms in North America. The field of research on reading fluency and comprehension was surveyed as a background to support this action research study, which utilized an experimental design, collecting quantitative data through student-generated artifacts. The researchers implemented a reading block into their Montessori classrooms. The large and small group lessons focused on modeled readings from the teacher, repeated readings, and corrective feedback. Data was collected at the beginning and end of the study. Data included words read correctly after three reads, comprehension and fluency scores, and two student selfevaluations rating their knowledge and feelings about reading. Students made progress in all areas measured, including fluency, comprehension, and feelings about reading. This research highlights the benefit of a designated daily reading block and explicit reading instruction, incorporating teacher modeling, repeated reading, and corrective feedback.

Abstract/Notes: The research sought to find information that provides solutions for teaching reading fluency among grade one learners in distance education to identify the underlying factors that affect the teaching and learning process in Pulangbato Elementary School, Quiot Elementary School, and Maria Montessori International School, Cebu, Philippines. This research delved into the experiences of the parents' personal opinions concerning learners' reading habits and fluency at home, teachers’ opinion survey on reading, how parents' involvement affects learners' reading fluency, and parents' and teachers' challenges in teaching reading to learners on distance learning. It employed a Qualitative-Phenomenological method with 18 teachers and 18 parents from 3 different schools as participants. The researchers utilized an interpretative phenomenological analysis with the help of a survey questionnaire to determine the experiences of both participants, the parents, and teachers. The results of the study revealed that both participants, the parents, and the teachers, are still trying their best to adapt to the new normal set-up of learning, distance education. The parents favor having face-to-face classes for they are not confident with their ways of teaching, especially in teaching reading fluency among their learners. In addition, they are having difficulty balancing their work and, at the same time, teaching their learners.

Abstract/Notes: This chapter emphasises the importance of teachers consciously trying to live together harmoniously for themselves as opposed to merely modelling behaviours. It highlights the teachers’ intrinsic commitment to pursuing Learning To Live Together Harmoniously both for themselves and for their students. It encourages questioning if schools need to be just learning centres for children or if they can be restructured as learning spaces for everyone, spaces for community living, and spaces for experimenting with different ways of living and being. It exemplifies some of these alternatives and finds that the schools had several supportive systems for teachers, including those for autonomy, dialogue, collaboration, reflection, meditation, action on issues of social justice, and ethos of harmony.

Abstract/Notes: This paper discusses the implications of using life history methodology in teacher research. By examining teachers’ life stories within a cultural and historical context the researcher and teacher, in collaboration, construct a life history. Biographical material based on the personal and professional aspects of being a teacher were collected from eight Montessori teachers in Sweden. Empirical data included interviews, diaries, written narratives and discussions. Theoretical and philosophical issues raised in conjunction with the biographies included counterconcepts such as traditional educational theory/critical reflection and continuity/change within the profession. Specific issues were raised in regard to students, parents, the work situation, etc. Valuable insights were gained concerning the changing roles of teachers in contemporary educational contexts. The voices and visions of teachers should thus be able to contribute to a deeper understanding of the role of the teacher and by so doing lead to improvements within the profession as a whole.
