School Counselors in Public Montessori: A Qualitative Study of Three Elementary Schools

Available from: North Carolina State University Libraries

Public Montessori

Abstract/Notes: This study uses qualitative research methods to examine the role of school counselors in three public Montessori elementary schools. Through the process of interviews and site visits, the data collected are compared against the American School Counseling Association's guidelines for a balanced and comprehensive guidance program. Data are also evaluated to see if philosophical and pedagogical elements of Montessori are integrated into each school's guidance program. The findings show that all three schools have programs that provide intervention services at a much higher rate than preventative services, and they have difficulty integrating Montessori pedagogy into their counseling programs. However, the opinions of the counselors at all three schools are favorable toward Montessori, and there seem to be possibilities for Montessori/counseling integration that could provide a very strong balanced and comprehensive guidance program.

Abstract/Notes: Goals 4 and 16 provide an ideal framework for advancing the role of Montessori education: "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all," and "Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels."· Arun Gandhi, a grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, was one of the forum's major speakers.To educate future generations to embrace diversity and a culture of nonviolence and peace, we as Montessorians can also: * Participate in programs such as the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN), where students learn about the workings of the United Nations, and the Global Citizenship Action Project (GCAP), a student-run conference where global issues are presented by a variety of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). * Partner with teacher education programs to create a more coordinated peace education component for all adult learners preparing to be Montessori teachers. * Disseminate examples of effective strategies and programs that prepare young people to become "peace builders."

Abstract/Notes: Michael Beth Edwards Upper Elementary Teacher, Spanish Language Task Force Chair, Montessori Model United Nations Coordinator Carroll Creek Montessori Public Charter School Frederick, MD I was so excited to see the latest issue of Montessori Life (Volume 30, Number 4, Winter 2019) in the mail. Not only do I think it is disrespectful to use the materials in this way, I also find it disrespectful to connect the materials with the study of Nepal and the art of mandalas. Know that whatever AMS prints, it promotes in the global community. [...]I ask you to use caution and ask credential trainers/leaders to be the final arbiters of authenticity.

Abstract/Notes: On the way, every crack in the road, each storm sewer, every pile of leaves or abundance of pecans had to be explored, and each extension of curb used as a balance beam. [...]as followers ofMontessori, we must be well informed about child development, developmental psychology, and the environments from which our children are coming so we can construct those supportive environments.

Is Montessori Really for Everyone?

Abstract/Notes: Mira Debs, the director of the Education Studies program at Yale University, played an instrumental role in the founding of Montessori for Social Justice. While obvious challenges associated with expanding racial and socioeconomic diversity in Montessori include transportation, subsidized meals, and limited access to lottery information, this book exposes complex additional issues, such as balancing the requirements of programmatic fidelity; managing potential gentrification when programs gain popularity, attracting middle-class families; and, finally, addressing family "fit." Furthermore, the limited availability of teacher education programs serves to restrict the diversity of individuals who choose to pursue Montessori teacher training, homogenizing the faces of Montessori teachers.

Reflections on the Internationality of Montessori Education

Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 20, no. 3

Pages: 40-44

Abstract/Notes: One of the major components of Dr. Montessori's plan for peace education is a curriculum that de-emphasizes nationalism. The "big picture" of the cultural curriculum encourages the perspective that people are citizens of Earth first, and only secondarily American, Japanese, Polish, or other nationalities. Through the fundamental needs material, children learn that all people on all continents throughout history had and have the same basic needs. In preindustrial times, geographic context, together with local natural resources, determined how different groups of people met their needs. And because this is still true, the Montessori geography curriculum is not limited to land and water forms and political borders, but necessarily extends to the people who inhabit other places. It teaches that other people are much like everyone else in terms of basic needs, but that they may meet those needs in very different ways; and children learn to respect those differences. Such a perspective is developed in Montessori settings even where little ethnic, religious, or social diversity exists, as long as a quality program is in place. Additionally, planetwide problems that Montessori may not have specifically anticipated, such as global warming, necessitate new attitudes and curricula that form and emphasize an "ecopsychological" awareness. This article examines the relevance of Montessori education to international schools: When properly integrated, Montessori complements and enhances many aspects of an international school, but when misapplied or partially applied, the obstacles that result can be quite difficult to overcome.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori (1965, p. 27) As I read AMS CEO Dr. Timothy J. Purnell's community announcement at the beginning of 2019 ("AMS Sees You-ALL of You"; amshq. org/Welcoming), I was excited that our AMS leadership was taking meaningful steps to clarify their position and lead the way in creating a more just world for our children and community members. Do our classroom libraries give our children "windows and mirrors" instead of tokenizing children of the global majority as minor characters or living dolls to be dressed up on special occasions? The authors offer these steps: * Identify a support person * Develop an awareness of your feelings and beliefs * Examine institutional advantages and disadvantages * Explore social justice activism * Create an anti-bias learning community.
