Moral Development in Montessori and Traditional Preschool Children: Does School Type Make a Difference?

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study investigates the moral development of thirty 5-year-old children in Montessori and traditional preschools. Data for the study were derived from five sources: an intelligence test; a perspective taking task; an altruism/helping task; an altruism/sharing task; and an interview for exploring moral reasoning. Two 30 to 45 minute sessions were used for data gathering. Comparisons were made between school type and across the total sample in regard to altruistic behavior, specifically helping and sharing; moral judgement, specifically positive justice reasoning; and cognitive perspective taking. Positive justice reasoning and altruistic behavior were not found to be affected by exposure to a Montessori or traditional school environment. Rather, results indicated that developmental influences alone determined reasoning and behavior, thus confirming developmental theories of moral growth, and suggesting as well that direct intervention or teaching may be more effective than environment in spurring moral growth.

Abstract/Notes: This article examines the effects of Montessori music-movement activities on the development of the rhythmic abilities of 59 children from Montessori preschools, aged between 3 and 6 years. Children were deployed into two experimental groups (EG 1 (n = 20) & EG 2 (n = 22)) and a control group (CG) (n = 17). Our intervention consisted of introducing 15 to 20 min of unstructured movement time, either accompanied by a piano (EG 1) or recording (EG 2), three times a week for four months, whereas the control group carried on the usual Montessori program. We used a quasi-experimental nonequivalent groups design with pretest–posttest. Three tests for measuring rhythmic abilities were used: auditory discrimination of the rhythmic patterns, imitation of spoken rhythmic phrases, and determining the synchronization of movement with the rhythm of the music. The interventions had a positive effect on the development of the rhythmic abilities of children included in the study. The most significant effect was noticed in EG 1, while no effect of non-activity was detected in the control group.

Abstract/Notes: 본 연구는 유아교육기관의 환경을 구성하는 교육프로그램 중에서 몬테소리 교육프로그램과 다중지능의 관련성을 살펴보고 몬테소리 교육이 유아들의 다중지능에 미치는 영향을 밝힘으로써 몬테소리 교육프로그램의 효율성을 규명하고자 하였다. 본 연구결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 몬테소리 교육프로그램은 유아의 다중지능 발달에 효과적인 영향을 미치는 것으로 밝혀졌다. 둘째, 다중지능 하위요인 중에는 몬테소리 교육프로그램이 유아의 음악지능과 신체-운동지능 발달에는 별다른 영향을 미치지 않았으나 논리/수학지능과 공간지능, 언어지능, 대인관계지능, 개인내지능, 자연지능 발달에는 효과적인 영향을 미치는 것으로 밝혀졌다. 이상의 결과를 통해서 볼 때, 몬테소리 교육프로그램은 유아의 다중지능 발달을 도울 수 있는 효과적인 교수방법 중의 하나임을 알 수 있다. 본 연구를 통해 몬테소리 교과과정과 교재는 다중지능의 하위구성요인과 연결되어 있고 다양한 공통적 활동을 하고 있으며, 준비된 환경은 다중지능발달에 효과적인 교육환경임을 밝혀내었다.
