Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 28, no. 2

Pages: 36-38

Abstract/Notes: Soon small baskets arrived with realistic (not cartoony) animals, bugs, and tactile items, followed by small containers for him to open and spools with thread. Because of this, Jet always thought he was getting something new when, really, much was recycled. Jet's toys-puzzles, plastic bugs, pretend grocery store items, blocks, art supplies, Legos, and train sets-are in his room, stored in separate bins within his reach. Since I am a control freak, this is a challenge, but I have a boy who is careless and fearless.

Guidance Instead of Discipline: Thoughts for Parents

Available from: ProQuest

Abstract/Notes: First of all, be the model for the expected behavior. [...]show your child what is expected; show him how to do it. Dad will bring the dishes over to the sink, Mom will load the dishwasher, and you will sweep the floor" Or if you are in the car on the way home, and the expectation is that your child will hang up her coat and backpack when she gets in the house (on hooks she can reach), address this as you are getting out of the car: "When you put your things away, then you may play" (or "then we can have a snack" or "then we can read a story," or whatever comes next in your house). [...]if your child comes into the house, plops her stuff down on the floor, and proceeds to the next activity, you can simply get into her space, and with brief eye contact and no anger in your voice, say, "What do you do when you first come in the house before you go play?" or "What is the rule in our house when we first come home?" Do not allow her to proceed to the next activity till this task is accomplished.

Abstract/Notes: This author observed that many Montessori schools have made efforts to include diversity in their programs. She toured schools in Chicago and found them oozing with multicultural awareness--from the library books on the shelves to the marketing materials they provided to the classroom celebrations of a variety of holidays. However, she observed that most of the students and teachers in these schools appear to be white. Her observations made her to wonder how student populations reflect a paradox when parents and schools are recognizing the importance of diversity in Montessori schools. She contends that Montessori schools are uniquely positioned to become not just actors, but leaders in applying diversity principles to education. She provides several suggestions on how these schools could realize this goal.

Master's Thesis (Action Research Report)

Available from: St. Catherine University

Action research

See More

Abstract/Notes: This action research was carried out to determine if parent education of sleep and routine had an effect on classroom behavior (physical contact and defiance). The research was completed in two full day 4K (four-year-old) Montessori classrooms in a Pee Dee Region elementary school. Students and parents were included in the research. Data from parents was gathered using assessments and sleep diaries. Teacher data was gathered using reflection journals and tallying charts. Parents were provided weekly education on sleep and routine importance. There was no conclusive data to show that parent education directly affected classroom behavior. The researchers believe the outcome was due to a lack of consistent parental participation.
