Abstract/Notes: "Yesterday the Dottoressa Maria Montessori held the first conference with her pupils in America. It was at the Children's House, 520 East Seventy-seventh Street. The Children's House is one of the thirty Montessori schools which have sprung up in New York during the last three years. The conference was impressive. The great Italian teacher greeted her pupils, her disciples , if you like, with delight and apparent amazement at the development of her work in New York. "This beautiful house of the children!" She cried. "You have so much here; in Italy we cannot give the children all this, we have it not to give, but little is much when children are free." Her work is growing fast in Italy. In the districts which have been devastated by the earthquakes twelve schools have been established. "I have now developed a method of educating children from five to ten years old. By it they learn reading, writing, arithmetic very easily - but especially nature, science, the languages. Then they are ready to enter the high schools, I believe you call it. Two years are saved in the school life of every child. My elementary methods have been put into sixteen schools in Italy. Signorini Maccheroni is training teachers and opening our schools in Spain." Miss Anne E. George, who introduced Dr. Montessori's work into this community, asked how Montessori teachers in the United States could learn the methods for older pupils. "Signorina Fidele might come here and supervise the elementary classes which you form." "But you, Dottoressa," exclaimed Margaret Naumberg, "why won't you stay and help us?" Dr. Montessori didn't say she would, but I noticed particularly that she didn't say she wouldn't. She is now on her way to California, where she will give a four months' course in Montessori methods in Los Angeles and San Diego. Her latest book, describing her work with older children, will be published in the fall. "Now, that is all my news, and I want to hear what you are doing. I want always to keep in close touch with you and with your work. Tell me what you are doing." Mrs. A. Reno Margulies, of 534 West 187th Street, told of her work with deaf and backward children. Miss George spoke of hers. "Ah," said Dr. Montessori, "but are you not working with the children of the well-to-do? Tell me what you are doing for the children of the poor." Miss Zoé Bateman, secretary of the Montessori Association, explained that the Children's House in which the conference was held was a free school, supported by contributions. "It is very hard to get the work taken up by the public schools," said Margaret Naumberg. "We have just secured permission to establish a class in Public School 4. It was only possible because of the enthusiasm of the principal, Simon Hirsdansky, for Dr. Montessori's work. "Until the work is developed by the Board of Education it cannot be carried very far among the poor, for teachers must live as well as teach." "It is easier to teach the children of the poor," said Dr. Montessori. "They are more eager to learn." "Oh, no" cried her pupils in chorus, "The children who have better homes, better food and better care learn much faster than the poorer children." "I had a group of poor children last winter, and a group of well-to-do children this winter," said Margaret Naumberg, "and the latter learned in six weeks more than the former learned in a year.""

Abstract/Notes: "Miss Helen Parkhurst, director of the department for the training of primary teachers of the Stevens Point Normal school, will leave Friday for California, where she will assist Dr. Maria Montessori of Rome, Italy, the world famous educator, in her summer series of lectures and demonstrations. Doctor Montessori will be at Los Angeles during the month of June, at San Diego in July and at San Francisco in August. Miss Parkhurst will work with her at all three cities. Dr. Montessori comes to this country in response to an invitation extended her by leading educational institutions and organizations in the nation, including Columbia University, New York City, and Leland Stanford University and the University of California in California. In this way it will be possible to train the maximum number of teachers in her methods of child instruction. Miss Parkhurst is a graduate of Dr. Montessori's school in Rome, where she spent five months last summer, and has successfully applied the Montessori system in her Normal school work. The invitations to assist Dr. Montessori is a signal honor to Miss Parkhurst, and one that giver her added prestigs in the profession she has chosen to follow. A young lady from New York City, a graduate of the Montessori school in Rome, will continue Miss Parkhurst's Montessori class at the Normal during June and July, so that thos who planned to take up the work will not be disappointed. Miss Mildred Tarrant of Durand, a member of the Normal graduating class, will go to California to receive instructions from Dr. Montessori."
