Abstract/Notes: This reprint of a 1980 article argues that there is a unique global consciousness inherent in the "prepared environment" of Maria Montessori's student-centered, nurturing curriculum for young children. Maintains that war and peace, overpopulation, hunger, environmental problems, and other global concerns can be addressed through education. (MDM)

Abstract/Notes: This qualitative phenomenological study focuses on the development of evidence-based writing skills in the upper elementary Montessori (9–12-year-old) classroom. This study traced the lived experience in the classroom as students interacted with an original writing material and the teacher responded dynamically based on student needs by providing coaching, additional lessons based on student needs, and opportunities to revise work independently, with a partner, or with the teacher. The study measured the students’ metacognitive awareness of their confidence using the R.A.C.E. (Restate, Answer, Cite, Explain) strategy as a tool to successfully complete an evidence-based writing response. It also explored student retention of this writing skill four weeks after their work with an original material. Twenty-one students in a suburban upper elementary Montessori classroom housed at a 4K-6 elementary school in the Midwest participated in this study during their Montessori worktime over eight weeks from the beginning of February 2022 through mid-March 2022. Instruments included whole class discussion questions, pre-survey, ongoing teacher observations, a mid-study interview, post-survey, and a four-week post study writing sample. Results of the study supported the research design. Students showed awareness of their metacognitive process and reported that they felt more confident using the R.A.C.E. writing strategy. 10 out of 12 students (83%) showed positive trend lines in their data as they progressed through eight levels of material, even as the support built into the material decreased with each level.

Abstract/Notes: Focusing on the transnational circulation of ideas about suffrage and education, this article explores the work of suffragist Muriel Matters (1877–1969), and teacher educator Lillian de Lissa (1885–1967). It begins with Matters’ and de Lissa’s childhoods and education in post-suffrage Australia, and their initial work as an actress and kindergarten teacher respectively. The second section focuses on the development of their politics when Matters migrated to England in 1905 and joined the Women’s Freedom League, and de Lissa became the foundation principal of the Adelaide Kindergarten Training College in 1907. The third section discusses their engagement with Maria Montessori’s educational approach, which Matters incorporated into her socialist feminist activism during the First World War, and which led to de Lissa’s recruitment to England as a liberal feminist teacher educator in 1917. The final section highlights their advocacy for Montessori education in the United Kingdom during the interwar years.
