Abstract/Notes: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a method that integrates catechetical, intellectual, and theological approaches with experiential, embodied, and liturgical ways of learning and knowing. This article examines CGS through the lens of the 2020 Directory for Catechesis. This study seeks to demonstrate that CGS succeeds, especially through its liturgical elements and application of Montessori principles, at the Directory's task of "initiating into the celebration of the mystery." By drawing from CGS's founders and from concrete examples of its approach, the article also argues that young children are capable of, and should be invited into, profound liturgical experience.

Abstract/Notes: Ginny Sackett lists many of the universal attributes of the absorbent mind--pattern recognition, order, incarnation, the rules for language, and numeracy. Her essay borders on the metaphysical as it suggests that the mathematical mind is really a non-entity and is responsible for all aspects of knowledge acquisition regardless of the discipline of the inclusion of mathematics. The end of the first plane is characterized by a "third embryonic" period, which is the formation of character and society and adds to the purpose of the mathematical mind. The mathematical context is mentioned around everyday applications, but when coming back to the theory in "Psychogeometry," the principles of the mathematical mind belong to all of Montessori pedagogy, as logical, connected, and propelling spontaneous exploration. [This talk was presented at the NAMTA double theme conference titled "The Essential Montessori Mathematics and Strengthening the Montessori Culture: Public and Private Sectors," (Milwaukee, WI, Oct 27-30, 2011).]

Abstract/Notes: Cet article vise à restituer le rôle joué par la Società Umanitaria (Société Humanitaire), basée à Milan, pour la diffusion de la Méthode Montessori. La période étudiée s'étend de 1908, année où l'Union des femmes se fait intermédiaire en vue de la création des premières Maisons d'enfants dans le quartier de la via Solari, jusqu'à 1923, année de la mort d'Augusto Osimo, secrétaire général de cette institution. À travers l'analyse des échanges épistolaires entre Maria Montessori et Augusto Osimo, l’auteure reconstruit la trame complexe d'une fructueuse collaboration qui s'est concrétisée avec l’organisation de cours de formation à la méthode Montessori par la Società Umanitaria. Leur collaboration s’est par la suite de nouveau manifestée autour d'une cause commune, à savoir l'intervention en faveur des enfants victimes de la guerre. / This article aims to reconstruct the role played by the Società Umanitaria (Humanitarian Society), based in Milan, in spreading the Montessori method. The period under study spans from 1908, the year of the initial mediation of the Women’s Union’s members for the creation of the first Children’s Houses in the Società Umanitaria’s district, until 1923, the year of Augusto Osimo’s death, the general secretary of this institution. In particular, through the analysis of Maria Montessori and Augusto Osimo’s correspondence, the author highlights the complex history of their fruitful collaboration, which materialized with the organization of Montessori training courses by the Società Umanitaria. Their cooperation was further reinvigorated by a common cause, namely support for children who were victims of the war.

Abstract/Notes: The Società Umanitaria of Milan, between 1918 and 1923, played an essential role in spreading and developing the Montessori Method. Studying in the Historical Archive of Società Umanitaria the numerous documents there collected, the author reconstructed the crucial moments of the extremely significant collaboration between Maria Montessori and Augusto Osimo, General Secretary of the Società Umanitaria. This complex and in-depth investigation was guided by the analysis, in specific, of the training courses for Montessori teachers organised by Società Umanitaria, essentially unexamined before this study, that allowed the researcher to have a deep insight into the action of Società Umanitaria aimed to promote and implement the Montessori Method in Italy and all around the world.
