Available from: University of Victoria (Canada) - Institutional Repository

Abstract/Notes: At a time in which technology is both pivotal and ever-changing, the need for students to become independent and passionate learners has never been more important. With the unveiling of British Columbia’s new curriculum, it has become evident that preparing students for a future riddled with constant change, instant communication, and immediate information is paramount. As such, the redesigned curriculum focuses on personalized learning, flexible learning environments, and inquiry-based learning as just a few of its cornerstones. Ironically, Maria Montessori recognized these same needs over one hundred years ago. This paper is intended to provide insight as to the parallels between BC’s new curriculum and the Montessori approach. As we move towards classrooms rich in both learning experiences and pedagogy, it is hoped that educators interested in the Montessori approach may implement some of the ideas within this document.

Abstract/Notes: Early childhood education has been shown to positively impact future academic performance, as well as social and emotional development. With ever-increasing demands being placed on children's academic performances, school readiness has become a key component of academic success. The purpose of this quantitative causal-comparative study was to examine the effectiveness of different early childhood curriculum models in preparing children for kindergarten, and to investigate whether one early childhood curriculum model better prepares students than another. The theoretical framework for the study is based on the developmental constructivist theories of Piaget, Vygotsky, Erikson, and Dewey. Kindergarten teachers assessed school readiness by administering the Kindergarten Observation Form. Each student had matriculated from either Montessori, High/Scope, or Reggio Emilia programs or early childhood programs without an identified curriculum model. Kindergarten teachers rated students on 24 items related to areas of cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and physical development. ANOVA and post-hoc tests revealed that students matriculating from programs without an identified curriculum model scored significantly better than their counterparts, F (3,122) = 5.33, p = .002. Implications for social change include improved kindergarten readiness on the part of students, increased awareness by educators as to best practices in early childhood education, and, a move towards understanding the types of environments in which children learn best.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this research; What is the opinion of teachers about organizational trust and how they change in kindergartens undergoing change process. The study focused on the teachers' organizational trust and resistance to change after they experienced change by adopting the Montessori education model of 10 state kindergartens in the Beylikdüzü and Üsküdar districts of Istanbul in the 2018-2019 academic year. Teachers were also affected by this change and started teaching according to the new model. In the research conducted in qualitative design, the opinions of the teachers were obtained through face-to-face interview forms. Teachers' opinions were examined with descriptive technique, organizational trust and resistance to change were revealed, and tabulation, sorting, and grouping techniques were used to describe the findings. At the end of the research, it was determined that teachers have organizational trust, but they are also worried because of the change. In the detailed examination of the opinions, it was determined that they trust the most of their colleagues and at least the school administration. In terms of resistance to change, it is obtained that they show resistance at the level of "cautiousness" for economic, familial, psychological and sociological reasons. While opinions of advanced-aged teachers about change are more resilient than young teachers, organizational trust views are less trustworthy. / Bu araştırmanın amacı;Değişim süreci yaşayan anaokullarında örgütsel güvene ilişkin öğretmen görüşlerinin neler olduğu ve nasıl değiştiğinin incelenmisidir.Çalışma 2018-2019 eğitim öğretim yılında İstanbul Beylikdüzü ve Üsküdar ilçelerinde klasik eğitim yapan 10 devlet anaokulunun Montessori eğitim modelini benimseyerek değişim yaşadıktan sonra öğretmenlerin örgütsel güven ve değişime karşı direnç görüşlerini konu edinmiştir. Bu değişimden öğretmenler de etkilenerek yeni modele göre öğretmenlik yapmaya başlamışlardır. Nitel desende yürütülen araştırmada öğretmenlerin görüşleri yüzyüze görüşme formlarıyla elde edilmiştir. Öğretmen görüşleri betimsel teknikle incelenerek örgütsel güven ve değişime direnç görüşleri ortaya çıkartılmış, bulguların betimlenmesinde tablolaştırma, sıralama, gruplandırma tekniklerinden yararlanılmıştır. Araştırma sonunda öğretmenlerin örgütsel güvene sahip oldukları fakat yaşanan değişiklik nedeniyle kaygı da kuydukları tespit edilmiştir. Görüşlerin detaylı incelenmesinde en fazla meslektaşlarına, en az da okul yönetimine güven duydukları tespit edilmiştir. Değişime direnç bakımından ise ekonomik, ailesel, psikolojik ve sosyolojik sebeplerden dolayı "temkinlilik" seviyesinde bir direnç gösterdikleri sonucu elde edilmiştir. İleri yaşlı öğretmenlerin değişimle ilgili görüşleri genç öğretmenlere göre daha fazla direnç niteliğinde iken örgütsel güven görüşleri daha az güven niteliğindedir.
