Available from: Taylor and Francis Online

Abstract/Notes: Although Montessori's name is almost universally known in education circles today, and there are countless nursery schools throughout the world using the "Montessori Method," the real core of her thinking has remained largely misunderstood. Most people regard the method as a system for the education of very young children. And most who have some direct experience of it, either as parent or teacher, would regard it as involving a certain set of procedures and specialized educational materials with clear and elaborate instructions for their use. However, the essence of Montessori's philosophy of education is in reality far broader than this, and contains a powerful message for educators everywhere. What is less well-known about Montessori's work is that she began by establishing the effectiveness of her approach at the pre-elementary level, but also strongly encouraged the extension of her method to the higher levels of education. Wentworth's purpose in writing this book is to elucidate this vital aspect of Maria Montessori's life's work and to show how it applies to real-life teaching situations. She believed that by transforming the process of children's education she could help to transform the attitudes of the adults they will later become, and so those of society and the world at large--a message she promoted as vitally relevant to the future of humankind as a whole.

Abstract/Notes: Eines der wichtigsten Ziele der Montessori-Pädagogik besteht darin, die Fähigkeit zur Konzentration zu fördern. Diesem Ziel dient vor allem auch das „Gehen auf der Linie“, eine der bekanntesten Übungen nach Montessori und verschiedene Stilleübungen. Die Autorin beschreibt zum einen auf eine klare und praxistaugliche Weise deren Ablauf und zeigt, wie man sie am besten einführt; zum anderen erläutert sie aber auch eingehend den Sinn der Übungen, ihre Bedeutung für die kindliche Entwicklung und ihre Einbettung in den Gesamtzusammenhang der Pädagogik Montessoris. [One of the most important goals of Montessori pedagogy is to promote the ability to concentrate. Above all, “walking on the line”, one of the most well-known exercises according to Montessori, and various stillness exercises serve this purpose. On the one hand, the author describes their process in a clear and practical way and shows how best to introduce them; on the other hand, she also explains in detail the meaning of the exercises, their importance for the child's development and their embedding in the overall context of Montessori's pedagogy.]

Abstract/Notes: The article is a presentation of a model of work with the elderly based on the principles of Maria Montessori pedagogy. The described model provides support for elderly people (also with cognitive deficits) not only in retaining maximum independence and highest possible level of intellectual functions, but also in their development through success-focused learning. Chosen elements adopted from Maria Montessori’s pedagogy such as prepared environment, specific didactic materials, and teacher/companion enable the classes’ participants to learn with joy, enjoying autonomy, respect and dignity. / Artykuł jest prezentacją modelu pracy z osobami starszymi opartej na założeniach pedagogiki Marii Montesssori. Opisywany model jest propozycją wsparcia osób starszych (również z deficytami poznawczymi) nie tylko w zachowaniu maksymalnej samodzielności, utrzymaniu funkcji intelektualnych na możliwie wysokim poziomie, ale także ich rozwój poprzez uczenie się zogniskowane na powodzeniu. Zaadaptowane z pedagogiki Marii Montessori wybrane elementy, m.in. przygotowane otoczenie, specyficzne materiały dydaktyczne, osoba nauczyciela/ towarzysza dają uczestnikom zajęć możliwość uczenia się z radością, poczuciem autonomii, szacunku i godności.
