Abstract/Notes: Montessori family education is a stepping stone in forming a bridge between school and home. This action research is focused on increasing familial attendance in Montessori education classes. Using quantitative and qualitative research methods are important tools in discovering the needs of the school community. Attendance, Likert scales and feedback questionnaires were useful tools in reaching out to the familial community. Implementing the changes based on the research results showed a drastic increase in attendance. With families leading busy lives, the school meeting them half way showed positive quantitative and qualitative results. This study had a maximum of 28 families participating. Data was collected pre-and post-Montessori education classes. A total of three family education classes were used for this action research. The second and third family education classes were formed using the results of the Likert scales and feedback questionnaire. The initial family education class was in the format originally used at the school. With each progressing family education class, attendance increased as did familial participation. Families felt at ease and comfortable participating in the discussion

Abstract/Notes: It is aimed in this study to analyze the effects of the Montessori education method on children with Down syndrome and autism having special training who have received and not received Montessori education through the Eurofit test batteries selected for motor skills and physical fitness. A total of 20 male children with Down syndrome and autism in the age range of 12 to 16 and receiving and not receiving Montessori education at two different special education and rehabilitation centers in Kayseri were included in the study. The treatment group included a total of 10 children, 5 with Down syndrome and 5 with autism, and the control group of 10 children, 5 with Down syndrome and 5 with autism. While the volunteers included in the treatment group received Montessori education, those included in the control group received a traditional education. In the study, the volunteers performed the selected Eurofit tests including flamingo balance, plate tapping, sit and reach, handgrip and standing long jump tests. When the results of the Eurofit test batteries of the treatment and control groups were examined, plate tapping and standing long jump test results were found significant in the comparison of the pretest and posttest of the treatment group (p < 0.05). In the pretest and posttest comparison of the control group students, a significant difference was determined in the sit and reach test (p < 0.05). In the posttest comparison of the control and treatment groups, a statistically significant difference was determined between the pretest and posttest measurements of the plate tapping and between the pretest and posttest measurements of the standing long jump (p < 0.05). In the pretest comparison of the control and treatment groups, no statistically significant difference was found between the pretest and posttest of flamingo balance, pretest and posttest of plate tapping, pretest and posttest of sit and reach, pretest and posttest of standing long jump and pretest and posttest of handgrip measurements of the control and treatment groups (p > 0.05). Consequently, the use of Montessori education materials supports the big and small muscle groups of children with disabilities since most of them learn about an object through touch. In our study, when some activity and motor skills of the children with down syndrome and autism in the special rehabilitation school that uses the Montessori education method were analyzed, it was observed that there was an improvement in their physical activities and some motor skills according to the results of plate tapping, standing long jump and sit and reach tests. It is recommended that education programs can be prepared by using Montessori Approach as part of the education programs applied in preschool education institutions and that they can be used more widely together with traditional education programs.

Available from: ERIC

Meeting of the Elementary Education Division of the Virginia State Department of Education

Abstract/Notes: Ten selected emerging trends in the field of early childhood education are discussed in this conference address: (1) a reevaluation of the view that early childhood education is a panacea; (2) greater emphasis on planned continuity between kindergartens and the primary grades; (3) increased use of multi-age grouping; (4) need for parenthood education in the high school; (5) importance of parent involvement in the decision making and policy formation processes concerning the education of his child and the implementation of classroom programs; (6) wider acceptance of the structured or prepared environment in programs; (7) development of a quality day care environment based on careful research and evaluation, (8) importance of humanistic or affective education; (9) need for aesthetic education (music, dance, literature, dramatics) in the total education of the child; and (10) accountability of teachers to the consumer as well as to the school boards.

Montessori Education: A Review of the Evidence Base

Available from: npj Science of Learning

Publication: npj Science of Learning, vol. 2

Pages: Article 11

See More

Abstract/Notes: The Montessori educational method has existed for over 100 years, but evaluations of its effectiveness are scarce. This review paper has three aims, namely to (1) identify some key elements of the method, (2) review existing evaluations of Montessori education, and (3) review studies that do not explicitly evaluate Montessori education but which evaluate the key elements identified in (1). The goal of the paper is therefore to provide a review of the evidence base for Montessori education, with the dual aspirations of stimulating future research and helping teachers to better understand whether and why Montessori education might be effective.

Abstract/Notes: A Maria Montessori nevével fémjelzett pedagógiai irányzat nem ismeretlen a külföldi és hazai pedagógia számára. Jelen cikk a Montessori módszer gyógypedagógiai gyökereinek bemutatására törekszik és ez által a gyógypedagógiai szempontú alkalmazásra kíván rávilágítani. A gyakorlatban sok Montessori-intézmény több éve végez sikeres integrációt és ma már Magyarországon is mûködnek gyógypedagógiai adaptációi a módszernek. A cikk a Montessori -gyógypedagógia gyakorlati eredményeit is bemutatja a 2008-ban végzett kutatási eredményekre támaszkodva. [The pedagogical trend marked by the name of Maria Montessori is not unknown to foreign and domestic pedagogy. This article seeks to present the special pedagogical roots of the Montessori method and thus to highlight its application in special pedagogical terms. In practice, many Montessori institutions have been successfully integrating for several years, and special educational adaptations of the method are already operating in Hungary today. The article also presents the practical results of Montessori special education based on the results of research conducted in 2008.]
