Available from: Taylor and Francis Online

Abstract/Notes: Although Montessori's name is almost universally known in education circles today, and there are countless nursery schools throughout the world using the "Montessori Method," the real core of her thinking has remained largely misunderstood. Most people regard the method as a system for the education of very young children. And most who have some direct experience of it, either as parent or teacher, would regard it as involving a certain set of procedures and specialized educational materials with clear and elaborate instructions for their use. However, the essence of Montessori's philosophy of education is in reality far broader than this, and contains a powerful message for educators everywhere. What is less well-known about Montessori's work is that she began by establishing the effectiveness of her approach at the pre-elementary level, but also strongly encouraged the extension of her method to the higher levels of education. Wentworth's purpose in writing this book is to elucidate this vital aspect of Maria Montessori's life's work and to show how it applies to real-life teaching situations. She believed that by transforming the process of children's education she could help to transform the attitudes of the adults they will later become, and so those of society and the world at large--a message she promoted as vitally relevant to the future of humankind as a whole.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori is a learning method to stimulate children to reach their potential in all fields. In the field of reading literacy, one of the initial stages is how to stimulate initial reading skills, starting with introducing letters using the syllable learning method. The stimulation process must be in a fun and not boring way of playing exploration so that children will not feel that they are learning, especially in the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic, where the learning process becomes boring for children because it has to be done at home. The purpose of this research is to create a learning technology in the form of an electronic puzzle Montessori Sand Board Letter (SBL) for Indonesian syllables that can help stimulate early childhood according to the Montessori principle in recognizing syllables. The system development method uses the System Development Life-Cycle (SDLC) method. Based on the results of functional testing using the black box method, it states that all functional systems function 100% according to design and objectives. The results of testing and validation by Montessori practitioners stated that the system was in accordance with Montessori rules. Based on the results of usage observations, the Montessori Sand Board Letter (SBL) electronic puzzle for Indonesian syllables can be an alternative learning tool to introduce Indonesian syllables for the initial reading learning process. / Montessori merupakan salah satu metode pembelajaran untuk menstimulasi anak dalam meraih potensinya di segala bidang. Pada bidang literasi membaca salah satu tahapan awal adalah bagaimana menstimulasi kemampuan membaca permulaan, dimulai dengan mengenalkan huruf-huruf menggunakan metode belajar suku kata. Proses stimulasi tersebut haruslah dengan cara eksplorasi bermain yang menyenangkan dan tidak membosankan sehingga anak tidak akan merasa bahwa ia sedang belajar, apalagi dalam kondisi pandemi Covid-19 yang masih berlangsung hingga saat ini, dimana proses belajar menjadi membosankan bagi anak karena harus dilakukan di rumah saja. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah membuat sebuah teknologi pembelajaran berupa puzzle elektronik Montessori Sand Board Letter (SBL) untuk suku kata Bahasa Indonesia yang dapat membantu menstimulasi anak usia dini sesuai prinsip Montessori dalam mengenal suku kata. Metode pengembangan sistem menggunakan Metode Sistem Development Life-Cycle (SDLC). Berdasarkan hasil pengujian fungsional menggunakan metode black box menyatakan bahwa seluruh fungsional sistem berfungsi 100% sesuai perancangan dan tujuan. Hasil pengujian dan validasi oleh praktisi Montessori menyatakan bahwa sistem telah sesuai dengan kaidah Montessori. Berdasarkan hasil observasi penggunaan, Puzzle elektronik Montessori Sand Board Letter (SBL) untuk suku kata Bahasa Indonesia dapat menjadi salah satu alternative tools pembelajaran mengenalkan suku kata Bahasa Indonesia untuk proses belajar membaca permulaan.

Abstract/Notes: Apresenta-se aqui o resultado da pesquisa feita numa escola de educação infantil e ensino fundamental de São José (SC) que objetivou verificar as contribuições da pedagogia Montessori às dimensões da escola como um espaço educador sustentável (EES). Revisitaram-se as ideias de educadores que pensaram uma escola à realidade da educação de seu tempo histórico e cultural, especialmente as de Maria Montessori. Na educação ambiental, destacaram-se a sustentabilidade, a escola sustentável e o nosso modo de ser, estar e permanecer na “casa de vida”, sob o olhar de Sauvé, Sato e outros. Ancorou-se em Foucault, com seu entendimento sobre os discursos de verdade, e em Bachelard, que interligou ciência e arte. A pesquisa evidenciou que a escola em foco está em processo de transição de constituir um EES quanto à dimensão do currículo, do projeto político pedagógico e da interação escola-comunidade e em virtude de seus caminhos e escolhas, entretanto algumas limitações existem, principalmente no espaço arquitetônico. Nas falas da comunidade escolar, viu-se que a escola busca criar seu próprio caminho, suas próprias estradas, e, embora não apresente total consonância entre sua proposta e os objetivos do Programa Nacional Escolas Sustentáveis, ambos possuem aspectos em comum. Concluiu-se que o projeto do centro educacional continua se efetivando entre saberes e fazeres da pedagogia Montessori. [We present here the result of a research carried out in a kindergarten and elementary school in São José (SC) which aimed to verify the contributions of Montessori pedagogy to the dimensions of the school as a sustainable educational space (EES). The ideas of educators who thought a school to the reality of education in its historical and cultural time were revisited, especially those of Maria Montessori. In environmental education, sustainability, the sustainable school and our way of being, being and staying in the “home of life” were highlighted, under the eyes of Sauvé, Sato and others. It was based on Foucault, with his understanding of truth discourses, and on Bachelard, who linked science and art. The research showed that the school in focus is in a transition process of constituting an EES regarding the dimension of the curriculum, the pedagogical political project and the school-community interaction and due to its paths and choices, however some limitations exist, mainly in the space architectural. In the speeches of the school community, it was seen that the school seeks to create its own path, its own roads, and, although it does not present total consonance between its proposal and the objectives of the Sustainable Schools National Program, both have aspects in common. It was concluded that the project of the educational center continues to be carried out between the knowledge and practices of Montessori pedagogy.]

A Comparison of the Place Value Understanding of Montessori and Non-Montessori Elementary School Students

Available from: National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS)

Abstract/Notes: Schools following the Montessori method use individual and small-group teaching methods and hands-on, concrete materials to provide a basis for deep learning of mathematical concepts. Schools with a mostly traditional approach to mathematics teaching mainly use large-group lecture methods with little use of manipulative materials. This study investigated the understanding of place value concepts and abilities of Montessori students by comparing task responses of 93 students in grades 1-3 in a Montessori school (n=47) and in a mostly traditional comparison school (n=46). Data collection included clinical interviews with each student. The theoretical framework used in the study was taken from Zoltan Dienes, a mathematician, who believed that mathematics is learned and created by forming layers of abstract generalizations. Interview tasks were both gathered from the literature and created by the researcher. Procedural tasks included those that asked students to count, to identify the value of digits in a number, and to use the standard addition algorithm for multidigit numbers. Conceptual tasks included those that required students to solve two-digit addition and missing addend questions with and without materials and to solve word problems involving three- and four-digit numbers. Some tasks included large numbers into the thousands because Dienes' framework calls for increasingly abstract generalizations, which for place value means larger and larger numbers.

Abstract/Notes: "Something that's unique about us, and very much because of how we were founded, is that we're really rooted in New Haven," Eliza Halsey tells me in her office. She's the Executive Director of ECMS (Elm City Montessori School) and a lifetime New Haven resident herself. In 2013, frustrated by the lack of high quality early education options in the city, Halsey and a group of parents decided to submit an application to form a local charter school. Their plan, a Montessori school serving a racially diverse group of children from age 3 through 8th grade, gained approval from both the local and state boards of education. In the fall of 2014, the school opened its doors, admitting a fraction of the 500 children who applied for seats. The parents and community members who came together to create ECMS had one goal in mind: to create a high-quality public early education option utilizing the Montessori method they had observed in Hartford. But creating a school is no easy process.
