Abstract/Notes: La méthode de Maria Montessori est née en pleine expansion du mouvement de l’Éducation nouvelle. Bien qu’on la considère généralement comme l’une des figures-clé de ce courant pédagogique, elle s’en considère plutôt la précurseure. Certes Montessori utilise constamment la dialectique de l’éducation « ancienne » et « nouvelle » dans ses écrits et elle a des points communs avec ce mouvement, expliquant ainsi des épisodes ponctuels de collaboration avec les entités qui le représentent ; mais elle s’éloigne aussi à maintes reprises des positions mises de l’avant par les pédagogues qui en font partie. Pour saisir la relation entre notre auteure et ce mouvement, on doit prendre en compte ses origines et ses fondements. À maintes reprises, Montessori contestera radicalement des principes de Rousseau et tente, en vain, de faire valoir sa vision, à travers ses collaborations avec les organismes représentant le mouvement de l’Éducation nouvelle. Évidemment l’opposition frontale d’une femme au héros incontesté du mouvement qu’elle critiquait ne pouvait qu’exaspérer ses contemporains. Qu’une simple « praticienne » de l’éducation s’érige en rivale de Rousseau était d’une arrogance impardonnable, puisqu’elle se positionnait ainsi en rapport de supériorité vis-à-vis tous les disciples du maître. C’était d’autant plus difficile à accepter qu’elle ne semblait pas prête à faire quelque concession que ce soit, résistant à se faire assimiler au mouvement et préférant avoir ses propres revues, ses propres congrès et sa propre association. La façon de concevoir les notions de liberté, discipline, effort, fantaisie et imagination, ainsi que l’approche de l’enseignement religieux et de la lecture et écriture, furent notamment au centre des divergences entre la pédagogie montessorienne et le mouvement de l’Éducation nouvelle. Bien que ces divergences mettent en évidence la différence entre l’héritage philosophique de chacun de ces courants, une recherche plus approfondie s’impose sur chacun de ces sujets.

Three Approaches from Europe: Waldorf, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia

Abstract/Notes: Waldorf, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia are three progressive approaches to early childhood education that appear to be growing in influence in North America and to have many points in common. This article provides a brief comparative introduction and highlights several key areas of similarity and contrast. All three approaches represent an explicit idealism and turn away from war and violence toward peace and reconstruction. They are built on coherent visions of how to improve human society by helping children realize their full potential as intelligent, creative, whole persons. In each approach, children are viewed as active authors of their own development, strongly influenced by natural, dynamic, self-righting forces within themselves, opening the way toward growth and learning. Teachers depend for their work with children on carefully prepared, aesthetically pleasing environments that serve as a pedagogical tool and provide strong messages about the curriculum and about respect for children. Partnering with parents is highly valued in all three approaches, and children are evaluated by means other than traditional tests and grades. However, there are also many areas of difference, some at the level of principle and others at the level of strategy. Underlying the three approaches are variant views of the nature of young children's needs, interests, and modes of learning that lead to contrasts in the ways that teachers interact with children in the classroom, frame and structure learning experiences for children, and follow the children through observation/documentation. The article ends with discussion of the methods that researchers apply to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.
