Abstract/Notes: Working in the urban environment of Dallas, Texas, executive director of Lumin Education Terry Ford shows how schools which might normally be competing with each other can support each other instead and forge a community amongst themselves, ultimately serving the families of the area more successfully.

Abstract/Notes: All the basics of the Montessori prepared environment are put into an extraordinary context of community and nurturing through personal encounter. The article emphasizes the longitudinal impact of an intentional community that results in character and concentration and looks to the spiritual attributes of the child in relation to the tangible parts of the prepared environment. Connie Black advises us that spiritual development entails appropriate love, respect, security, and generosity. Correlating achievement with the teacher's understanding of community and the prepared environment, the harmony of the Children's House is the point of origin for social and moral development.

Nurturing the Respectful Community through Practical Life

Abstract/Notes: Joen Bettmann's depiction of practical life exercises as character-building reveals how caring, careful, and independent work leads to higher self-esteem, more concern for others, better understanding for academic learning, and a self-nurturing, respectful classroom community. Particular aspects of movement and silence exercises bring out what Joen calls the child's "quiet soul," the contemplative and reflective side of life that brings peacefulness and a state of grace. [Excerpted from a presentation given at the NAMTA conference titled The "Casa dei Bambini on the Threshold of the Twenty-First Century," October 7-10, 1999, Arlington, VA. Reprinted from "The NAMTA Journal" 25,1 (Winter, 2000): 101-116.]
