Abstract/Notes: One of the major components of Dr. Montessori's plan for peace education is a curriculum that de-emphasizes nationalism. The "big picture" of the cultural curriculum encourages the perspective that people are citizens of Earth first, and only secondarily American, Japanese, Polish, or other nationalities. Through the fundamental needs material, children learn that all people on all continents throughout history had and have the same basic needs. In preindustrial times, geographic context, together with local natural resources, determined how different groups of people met their needs. And because this is still true, the Montessori geography curriculum is not limited to land and water forms and political borders, but necessarily extends to the people who inhabit other places. It teaches that other people are much like everyone else in terms of basic needs, but that they may meet those needs in very different ways; and children learn to respect those differences. Such a perspective is developed in Montessori settings even where little ethnic, religious, or social diversity exists, as long as a quality program is in place. Additionally, planetwide problems that Montessori may not have specifically anticipated, such as global warming, necessitate new attitudes and curricula that form and emphasize an "ecopsychological" awareness. This article examines the relevance of Montessori education to international schools: When properly integrated, Montessori complements and enhances many aspects of an international school, but when misapplied or partially applied, the obstacles that result can be quite difficult to overcome.

Abstract/Notes: 今、モンテッソーリ教育が再び注目されている。幼児教育への関心の高まりと先進国各国で行きづまった教育の方向模索の中で、再評価され始めているのである。モンテッソーリ教育そのものというよりも、今日の教育観、人間観、子ども観に「人格形成」の確立を迫るものとしてのモンテッソーリの貢献が、取り上げられている。本稿では、近代以降の教育思想の歩みの中で、モンテッソーリによってなされた子ども観の転換と幼児教育の転換の特質を考察し、モンテッソーリの唱えた子どもの創造的使命擁護の方法が、今日こそ必要性を増していることを考察した。 [Recently the method of Montessori is recognized again. It is being revalued because the childhood education is getting much interest and it is at a standstill in advanced countries. The contribution of Montessori is in the limelight, not as one teaching method, but as a clue to establishment of "character building" in perspectives on education, human, and children. The study considers the characteristics of perspective on children and the childhood education, which have been converted and effected by Montessori from modern times onwards. The study also suggests that the need to support the creativities of children, proposed by Montessori, is increasing today.]

Abstract/Notes: Mit diesem Buch legt die Zürcher Kinderpädagogin Heidi Maier-Hauser den Nachfolgeband zu ihrem erfolgreichen Buch "Lieben - ermutigen - loslassen" vor. Einfühlsam beschreibt sie die Prinzipien einer Erziehung, die Kindern Selbstvertrauen und Lebensintelligenz geben. "Hilf mir es selbst zu tun. Zeig mir wie es geht! Und dann bitte lass mich gewähren! Ich habe das Recht, mich zu irren. Ich muss meine eigenen Erfahrungen machen, um zu einem gesunden und mutigen Menschen heranwachsen zu können." Kinder haben kein Anrecht auf perfekte Eltern, aber sie haben ein Anrecht darauf, dass wir unser Bestes geben - unter dieser Devise steht das neue Buch von Heidi Maier-Hauser. Und wenn wir unser Bestes geben, können wir auch loslassen und darauf vertrauen, dass unser Kind seinen Weg Schritt für Schritt bewältigt. Unsere Angst, das Kind könnte ohne unser stetes Eingreifen sein Leben nicht bewältigen, ist ein verständlicher aber schlechter Ratgeber. "Das beste zu wollen" bedeutet die Fähigkeit zu besitzen, in vielen Situationen auszuhalten und dem spontanen Bedürfnis, in den Alltag des Kindes einzugreifen, nicht zu folgen.
