Abstract/Notes: This action research project was completed to test the effects of a culturally diverse art program on early childhood students’ cultural competency. The setting was a Montessori early childhood classroom of 22 children. There were two Asian students, one African American student, and 19 Caucasian students. Data were collected using a student conference form, self-portrait rubric, and tally sheets - continent symbol matching, group discussions and art activities. A group presentation took place each week about an artist from one the six inhabited continents which included a biography and examples of their artwork. Following the presentation an art activity was placed on the art shelf. The results showed that the program had a positive impact on the students’ cultural competency. This program will continue to evolve by interweaving it with other cultural curricula in the classroom and spending more than one week with each artist and activity.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori education was developed over 100 years ago, and persists as a marginal ‘niche reform’ of the standard model. Here I discuss two unresolved dichotomies in early childhood education – the tension between work and play, and between structure and freedom. I explain how Montessori collapses and thereby resolves the dichotomies, and does so in a contemporary theoretical frame – one that is dynamical rather than linear. I next describe the origins and functioning of Montessori preschool environments, outcomes from the most methodologically sound studies to date, and impediments to Montessori’s more widespread adoption. I also show how Montessori is a culturally responsive pedagogy, and conclude by return to the dichotomies and how Montessori makes sense for the modern era.

Abstract/Notes: The paper presents the idea of human development according to the Maria Montessori theory of education. Firstly, the sensitive periods in the child’s development, responsible for the extreme absorption of specific competences, were identified and shortly described. Then attention was paid to the Montessori System of Relation consisting of the brain, senses and muscles that underlies the person’s philosophy of action. The following sections show the main elements of Montessori Cosmic Education and the role of the human being in the universe. The importance of social, religious and ecological education in the plan of cosmic development of the person has been presented in the main part of the paper. The conclusion shows the Montessori’s belief that a man has a special cosmic task consisting in transforming and improving the world and discovering one’s place in it. The task of a new human being is to shape future generations not only externally but also in terms of spiritual development. / W artykule została zaprezentowana koncepcja rozwoju człowieka w teorii edukacji według Marii Montessori. Wyszczególniono wrażliwe fazy rozwoju odpowiedzialne za ekstremalną chłonność w uczeniu się i nabywaniu konkretnych kompetencji. Zwrócono uwagę na system relacji składający się z mózgu, zmysłów i mięśni oraz na filozofię działania. W dalszej części ukazano główne elementy wychowania kosmicznego oraz rolę człowieka we wszechświecie. Przedstawione zostało znaczenie edukacji społecznej, religijnej i ekologicznej w kosmicznym planie rozwoju osoby. We wnioskach podkreślone zostało przekonanie Montessori, że człowiek posiada specjalną misję w kosmicznym planie stworzenia, a jest nią przekształcanie i ulepszanie świata oraz odkrywanie swojego miejsca w nim. Zadaniem nowego człowieka ma być kształtowanie przyszłego pokolenia nie tylko zewnętrznie, ale również po względem rozwoju duchowego.
