Abstract/Notes: In lyrical prose, Jim Webster lays out his view on the universal human use of tools and how "humans meet the practical demands of life." Webster lauds physical work and the work of the hand as they both support engagement, social cooperation, a deepening of relationships, and sustainability. Practical work is valuable and is plentiful as it generates reciprocal community, dignity, self-awareness, and provides opportunity by giving comfort, refining skills, expressing creative insight, and imparting a sense of gratitude. [This article is based on the talk presented at the NAMTA adolescent workshop titled "From Childhood to Adolescence: Keys, Disciplines, Social Organization, and Life-Long Impact," at the AMI/USA Refresher Course, Houston, TX, Feb 14-17, 2014.]

Abstract/Notes: In this interview conducted at the NAMTA conference, "Observation: The Key to Unlocking the Child's Potential", Molly O'Shaughnessy discusses the history of observation with Hilla Patell. Patell shares stories of the people who were instrumental in creating a culture of observation as an ongoing discipline to be practiced. She goes on to talk about some of the keys to understanding and practicing observation, including the child's concentration, the need to rid ourselves of preconceptions, and how to look for obstacles that impede a child's development. She tells us that as observers we must stay in the present and have "faith in the human spirit." [Paper presented at the "Observation: The Key to Unlocking the Child's Potential," North American Montessori Teachers' Association (NAMTA) Conference, Part 1 (Denver, CO, November 5-8, 2015).]
