Abstract/Notes: The most common reason for a person to partake in reading and writing is enjoyment which also provides intrinsic motivation. Students who have intrinsic motivation are more likely to be engaged and interact deeply in the literacy activity, which has shown to increase comprehension and higher reading achievement. Intrinsic motivation and engagement are vital in creating life-long readers and writers. Engaged literacy activities are both a goal of instruction and a pathway to achieve success. The purpose of this research project was to study the effects of engagement strategies and the use of social justice literature on literacy development. This study took place at a public Montessori school located in the Midwest. There was a total of twelve students which consisted of first and second graders aged six through eight years old. Over the span of the twelve-week study, the engagement strategies of experiential learning, interactive read-aloud, and interactive writing were implemented. Student behaviors, knowledge, and skills were assessed to place students on the Reading Developmental Continuum through observation and miscue analysis before and after the strategies were implemented to determine literacy growth in engagement, comprehension, and language-to-print connections. The results indicated growth in all three reading components. It also revealed an increase in students’ social justice awareness and sense of agency. This suggests that engagement strategies rooted in rich meaningful literature positively impact students’ literacy development.

Abstract/Notes: The development of empathy in early childhood contributes to moral development, which affects justice and ultimately, society. This research team contends, corroborated by the most current evidence available in this field of study, that we can build up strong communities by cultivating empathy, emotional literacy, and prosocial behavior in early childhood - the period of life in which the brain is most plastic. These assertions are justified by Montessori philosophy. This paper offers a framework supporting the execution and implementation of a robust, community-based program for social interaction that has potential to benefit infants and preschool-age children in the context of Montessori classroom environments.

Abstract/Notes: We describe a fulfilling 7-year relationship between educational practice and program evaluation at the STAR School, an Arizona public charter dedicated to providing excellent education for Navajo children in a rural, impoverished area. Previous literature had empirically identified Pre/K math and language skills as predictors of future school success. Therefore, a Montessori-based curriculum with trained teachers was implemented. It provided high quality preschool math education that was congruent with Navajo cultural values. Program evaluation and educators’ insights comprised a long-term collaboration that guided annual improvement of the program. Children’s data on growth in math, language, and social development are summarized for the most recent 3 years of the program, as are parental assessments of the school. Results indicate that this program has been highly successful with Pre and K students. They entered more than a year behind, on average, in math concepts and language. By the end of their Pre/K experience virtually all of the children were at or above grade level in math. We believe that our work underscores the value of creating long-term collaborative relationships between rural educators who are implementing promising educational practices and dedicated researchers who can offer beneficial empirical and theoretical perspectives.
