Bringing to Light Storytelling, Music, and Dance Inside a Montessori Environment

Publication: AMI Journal (2013-), vol. 2014-2015

See More

Abstract/Notes: Ryan Katz speaks of dance as movement arising out of imagination—sometimes natural, interpretive, behavioural, or even spiritual. Katz shows the connection of imagination to the art of storytelling, as an expression of culture, responding to audiences, and a means of imparting oneself through literacy to the next generation. Again, storytelling attaches knowledge to personal experience, brings the listener to the spiritual dimensions of history, and gives an anthropomorphic understanding of the natural world. Imagination works! It unifies life.

Abstract/Notes: The cultivation of a musical environment from birth, indeed from before birth, is a first necessity. Montessori understood that the child listens through movement, so to speak. Thus, with the aid of collaborators such as Elise Braun Barnett, the ‘daily concerts for listening-moving’ were developed experimentally over several decades.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this action research study was to determine how community building music would affect the transition time in a primary Montessori classroom. The researchers were two female preschool teachers in public Montessori schools. The participants, aged three to six years old, were involved in a daily clean-up time, which took place before the study began. The teachers added a music intervention for four weeks to see if the dynamics of clean-up time would change. The teachers documented the research study using qualitative and quantitative data tools. The data tools included student surveys, teacher journals, a timer log, and a classroom tracker sheet. The intervention findings showed an overall decrease in the amount of time students took to clean up and an increase in happiness and community involvement in the classroom. Future researchers should consider the pre and post student survey be completed on an individual basis. Additionally, increase the length of baseline data collection and intervention.

The Effect of Background Baroque Music on Work Accomplishment and Student Concentration on Days of Rapid Weather Changes.

Available from: St. Catherine University

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study used Baroque background music to mitigate the effects of weather variables on 12 students of a Montessori elementary classroom. The weather forecast data were gathered from the National Weather Service. Two student feedback forms gauged attitudes towards the music and academic activities, focus, and accomplished work. A teacher tally chart marked daily observations of behavior. The study utilized Microsoft Excel with methods of descriptive data analyses, t-tests, and regression analysis. Student appreciation of music varied, but the children’s affinity for music remained high. It is unclear whether the music created a positive mindset. The Baroque background music contributed to higher work accomplishments on days of greater barometric pressure, sky cover changes, and lower changes in precipitation potential. The results of background music on concentration are inconclusive, however, over time, student focus increased with the intervention. A longer duration of study may confirm the findings presented here.
