Abstract/Notes: Albert Joosten wrote this article in 1968, and it is still the most comprehensive article on practical life to date. He develops his thesis beginning with "daily activities" leading to "developmental and creative activities." At the same time, Mr. Joosten establishes the psychological backdrop for the practical life exercises as he continues to describe the physical dynamics with an implicit demand for perfection. He definitively presents the indirect aims of the practical life exercise and looks at the coordination of movement, the integration of personality, emotional enrichment, the strengthening of the will, and the social relations that flourish while doing practical life with other children and the adult.

Helping the Child in the Conquest of the Written Language

Available from: ERIC

Publication: NAMTA Journal, vol. 41, no. 1

Abstract/Notes: A. M. Joosten writes from his deep and long classroom experience of the many activities to use with the movable alphabet for solidifying language skills. He is always sensitive to situations where a child may have come late to the House of Children and therefore might need incentives to engage with the materials. This valuable information is for the directress whose children need extra help in learning the sounds of the sandpaper letters. In the "how-to" details, Joosten is careful not to correct the child but to structure a lesson so that practice and repetition entice the child. Some suggested activities involve small group work and many involve movement. The children will not even realize how many different activities are directed to increasing their fluency with the sandpaper letters and the movable alphabet.

Abstract/Notes: Joosten begins his article by telling us that love and knowledge together are the foundation for our work with children. This combination is at the heart of our observation. With this as the foundation, he goes on to offer practical advice to aid our practice of observation. He offers a "List of Objects of Observation" to help guide our eye and tips for recording observations. He includes a "Guide for Psychological Observation" from "The Advanced Montessori Method, Volume 1" and ends with the message of observation as a key to the improvement of humanity through our work with the child.

Abstract/Notes: "Our primary concern is not that the child learns to do something without mistakes. Our real concern is that the child does what he needs, with interest." The reaction of so many adults to the mistakes of children is to correct, immediately and directly, says Joosten. To truly aid the child in development, we must learn to control our response to the child's mistakes and recognize that it is through these mistakes that the child's difficulties are revealed. We always have the choice whether or not to correct a child in the moment of error. If we pay attention and observe the mistakes of children in order to discover the source of those mistakes, we can be guided in how best to remove those difficulties that impede the child's development.

Abstract/Notes: Mr. Joosten offers an interesting comparison of two important 20th century contemporaries on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of their birth. Although Dr. Montessori and Mahatma Gandhi's missions were centered in different fields, both dedicated their lives to peace, individual freedom, and the full development of human potential. This talk was given at Hyderabad, India on August 31, 1969. Includes photos of Gandhi and Montessori on page 38.
