Conference Paper

Abstract/Notes: The current study addresses whether the type of motivator students receive while reading and the school program they attend influences reading retention. Fifth-graders were randomly assigned to read text passages within a context of either intrinsic (learn for fun) or extrinsic (learn to receive a prize) motivators. Retention of the text passage was measured immediately and after a one-week delay. Changes in story recall scores varied as a function of both program type (traditional vs. Montessori) and experimental motivator. Improvement in performance after delay was only evident for Montessori students provided with an intrinsic motivator. The results illuminate how the type of pedagogy and academic motivators a student has been exposed to influence how students approach learning.

Invitation to Heretical Reading of Montessori Pedagogy

Available from: Uniwersyteckie Czasopisma Naukowe

Publication: Problemy Wczesnej Edukacji [Issues in Early Education], vol. 55, no. 2

Pages: 106-119

Abstract/Notes: In the article the author invites readers to initiate a certain mode of reading that – inspired by Agamben and Holmes – is called heretical reading. Following the latter, the article suggests that it is important to read Montessori in a heretical way in order to keep this idea open and “alive”. This mode of reading demands constant attempts of playing with the pillars or the main categories of this educational approach. The article is divided into three sections. The first part refers to the socio-historical context of Montessori writings and their reception in Poland. The second part problematizes the issue of dogmatisation and privatization of the knowledge on Montessori and thus making it difficult for the heretical reading to come into being. The last part is devoted to the preliminary sketch of the idea of heretical reading. Following Bourdieu and Agamben the author presents the mode of play – conceived of as an “unappropriate” use of a certain Thing – as a possible initiation of the intellectual experiment that can be called a heretical reading.

Abstract/Notes: The study presents the results obtained in the long-term project “Taiwan preschool English classes: Montessori and non-Montessori approaches”. The article focuses on the analysis of the Montessori materials commonly implemented for teaching very young learners of English. Their teaching materials (e.g. vowel matching cards, sandpaper letters, sentence analysis signs) help to develop all four skills of English at the very early age. Furthermore, they let the kindergartners get acquainted with some metalinguistic knowledge of phonology (e.g. phonics, sound blend), syntax (sentence structure with parts of speech), morphology (building words) etc. Such deeper learning of English as foreign language by very young learners in a playful way leads to the fact that 4-6 years old Taiwanese children have a good foundation of basic English in speaking, reading, listening and writing, while growing in non-naturalistic environment of English. / В статье представлены результаты, полученные в рамках долгосрочного проекта «Тайваньские дошкольные занятия по английскому языку: Методика Монтессори и не-Монтессори». Статья посвящена анализу учебных пособий Монтессори, используемых для дошкольного обучения английскому языку (например карты соответствия гласных, наждачные буквы, знаки для анализа предложений), помогают развить все четыре навыка английского языка в самом раннем возрасте. Кроме того, они позволяют дошкольникам познакомиться с некоторыми металингвистическими знаниями фонологии (пр. фониксы), структуры предложений (с частями речи), морфологии (построение слов) и т. д. Такое более глубокое изучение английского языка как иностранного дошкольниками в игровой форме приводит к тому, что 4-6-летние тайваньские дети имеют хороший фундамент базового английского языка в разговорной речи, чтении, аудировании и письме, при этом не живя в среде английского языка.

Abstract/Notes: Reading is a skill that remains for a long time in persons with dementia (PWD), with oral reading and grammatical knowledge often being preserved through the latest stages of the condition. However, without access to dementia-appropriate reading materials, many senior living communities are compelled to provide children’s books to PWD. While the large font and simple sentences in such books make them easy to read, they fail to respect PWD’s status as adults who have significant life histories. Hearthside Book Club® (HBC) is a Montessori-based and adult-appropriate reading and discussion activity that capitalizes on the remaining abilities of PWD. This paper will discuss the key features of HBC, outcomes of a research study that examined HBC, processes used to disseminate HBC, and lessons learned while disseminating the intervention. Regarding the research study, persons from all stages of dementia participated (N=108), with 33% in the Early Stages, 28% in the Middle Stages, and 39% in the Late Stages. When compared to baseline activities, HBC produced an 85% increase in Constructive Engagement (p<.01), a 91% increase in Pleasure (p<.01), a 76% decrease in Distracted Engagement (p<.01), and a 59% decrease in Non-Engagement (p<.01). In addition, Quality of Life (measured with the DEMQOL) increased (p<.05), while Apathy (measured by the NPI-NH) decreased (p<.05). Regarding dissemination of HBC, a competitive analysis, surveys, and interviews with end users were used to determine optimal ways of delivering and pricing the intervention. Ultimately, we decided to disseminate HBC digitally as a Book of the Week Club.
