Abstract/Notes: This research is a case study of African American parent involvement at a urban Montessori school in Minnesota. African American parents at this school have had limited involvement in conferences, PTSO meetings, school activities, and on the Site-Based Leadership Team. An examination of the literature was made to investigate the influences on African American parents when they make decisions about their parental involvement. This research covered the historical background, theoretical background, implications, racial barriers, and strategies that increased African American parent involvement. An ethnography was designed to gather data from 9 mothers of African American students. These parents provided information about their backgrounds and their experiences with the school. Staff at the school (6) were interviewed as to their experiences with African American parent involvement. The results of the study offer findings on attitudes, perceptions, needs and ideas for improving African American parent involvement at any school.

Teaching to Be American: The Quest for Integrating the Italian-American Child

Abstract/Notes: In the early years of the twentieth century, the great structural, social and cultural changes in American society included a growing number of immigrants arriving from the poorest regions of Europe. For the first time, the issues of immigration, assimilation and social integration became the most important problems facing American society. In the optimistic climate of the so-called progressive era, social reformers thought that these problems could be solved by the science of pedagogy, as applied to the educational needs of foreign immigrants. This essay centres on the pedagogical efforts of Italian-American educator Angelo Patri, who attempted to integrate Italian-American children into the fabric of American society through education. It starts by assessing Patri’s early writings, such as A Schoolmaster of the Great City, and his private and professional papers. In doing so, his work is situated in the debate on progressive education alongside pedagogue Maria Montessori, demonstrating his central role in the debate on integration through education. Within this analysis, particular attention is paid to the notion of learning by doing, and it is argued that both educators were influenced by this particular aspect of progressive education.

Abstract/Notes: "New York, Apr 19 - La Dottoressa Maria Montessori e giunta off a bordo del piroscafo "Duca degli Abruzzi". La illustre pedagogista rimarra in America quattro mesi. Ella e accompagnata dal cugino Mario Montessori. Quanto prima partira per la California, ove e state chiamata da quel Consiglio dell'Istruzione a tenere un corso di pedagogia e didattica per le maestre delle scuole elementari. La Dottoressa Montessori e stata l'iniziatrice di un nuovo metodo pedagogico, il quale si differenzia dai metodi comunemente seguiti nelle scuole, perché lascia un'assoluta liberta all'iniziativa individuale del fanciullo, cercando coltivare questa senza forzare o mutarne, o comprimerne il libero sviluppo il fanciullo apprende non per la imposizione dell'insegnante, ma perché vuole apprendere, perché l'insegnamento e parte del gioco, della sua libera e spontanea attività. Scuole che seguono il metodo Montessori vi sono in Italia e in altri paesi dell'Europe. Da poco tempo ne sono sorte in America ed hanno avuto ed hanno grandi risultati pratici.

Abstract/Notes: The complex history of Montessori’s Method spreading in the United States was signed by some misunderstandings connected with the reform of the american education system. The Method wasn’t understood in its specificity, but it appeared, in the same time, an alternative or an application of the tradition of Froebel’s Kindergarten. In those years the American pedagogical reflection tried to create an alternative to the continental tradition. For this reason the Progressive Education critized Montessori (i.e. Kilpatrick) for her spiritual and metaphysical premises but this movement couldn’t realize this project and it was inevitably connected with the tradition of European Activism.
