Abstract/Notes: Observation of 200 children ages 4 to 19 attending a Massachusetts nongraded alternative school disclosed substantial age mixing. Younger children used older children to develop skills and acquire knowledge.

Abstract/Notes: This article describes the general principles of the philosophy of Montessori education. The basis of Montessori education is a student-centered learning environment--one that includes provision for an inquisitive, cooperative, safe, and nurturing atmosphere for learning. Students' psychosocial needs must be addressed before their cognitive needs, so that students will enjoy learning and become life-long learners. Montessori education has developed two sets of practices with regard to teacher preparation and classroom environment that facilitate student-centered environments. Montessori teacher education programs focus on training teachers in observational skill and child development. Teachers are educated in developmental levels and in matching appropriate skills and activities to levels. Appropriate materials facilitate the development of physical, intellectual, and social independence. Characteristics of the Montessori classroom include: teachers who are educated in the Montessori method; partnership with the family; a multi-aged, multi-graded, heterogeneous grouping of students; a diverse set of Montessori materials, activities, and experiences; a schedule that allows time for problem solving; connections between knowing and creating; and a classroom atmosphere that encourages social interaction for cooperative learning, peer teaching, and emotional development. The paper concludes with comments regarding the positive aspects of multi-age grouping.

Abstract/Notes: A partir de uma experiência com o Programa Institucional de Bolsas de Iniciação à Docência (PIBID) no desenvolvimento de um dos subprojetos do curso de Pedagogia, da Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná, campus de Francisco Beltrão, que tem atuado junto a este programa há seis anos, o objetivo deste artigo é analisar e discutir as contribuições do referido programa à formação inicial do pedagogo. Para isso, tomamos como referência o processo formativo de um grupo de acadêmicos que acompanhou e participou de atividades pedagógicas em um Centro Municipal de Educação Infantil (CMEI), onde tiveram contato com o método Montessori, e em duas escolas públicas em turmas de alfabetização nos anos iniciais do Ensino Fundamental. Para as análises e reflexões deste trabalho, temos como base nosso olhar de observadoras e coordenadoras do subprojeto que no decorrer do desenvolvimento de atividades semanais com o grupo nos permitiu acompanhar todo o processo formativo dos acadêmicos e ouvir seus relatos sobre suas vivências no programa, além, dos momentos de reflexões sobre a prática de ensino que aconteciam. Algumas constatações sinalizam para o quanto é significativa a inserção dos acadêmicos nas instituições de ensino desde os primeiros anos de sua graduação, consolidando uma relação mais efetiva entre teoria e prática e potencializando experiências formativas mais amplas, ao mesmo tempo que constituindo a identidade de sua atuação profissional com a docência. [Based on an experience with the Institutional Scholarship Program for Teaching Initiation (PIBID) in the development of one of the subprojects of the Pedagogy course, at the State University of Western Paraná, Francisco Beltrão campus, which has been working with this program for six years, the objective of this article is to analyze and discuss the contributions of the referred program to the initial formation of the pedagogue. For this, we take as reference the training process of a group of academics who accompanied and participated in pedagogical activities at a Municipal Center for Early Childhood Education (CMEI), where they had contact with the Montessori method, and at two public schools in literacy classes in the early years of elementary school. For the analyzes and reflections of this work, we are based on our view as observers and coordinators of the subproject that, during the development of weekly activities with the group, allowed us to follow the entire training process of the academics and hear their reports about their experiences in the program, in addition to , of the moments of reflection on the teaching practice that took place. Some findings indicate how significant the insertion of academics in educational institutions is from the first years of their graduation, consolidating a more effective relationship between theory and practice and enhancing broader training experiences, while constituting the identity of their performance professional with teaching.]
