Abstract/Notes: This section provides an overview of Maria Montessori’s life and her intellectual ideas in the context of her contemporaries. The four chapters of this section expand Montessori’s intellectual and practical legacies beyond education alone by emphasizing the relationship of her work to philosophy, feminist paradigms, spiritual influences, and the varied political narratives around her. These contributions add a great deal to the provenance of her ideas within the unfolding Italian and European social and intellectual history of the time. Montessori was a child of both the Enlightenment and the Risorgimento and was buffeted by late 19th century and early 20th century events just as were her contemporaries. The fact she, and her work, survived is a testament to her capacity to navigate very difficult historical contexts.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori lectured in Italian during the first International Montessori Course in 1939 at Madras, India. These 75 lectures were translated into English by her son Mario, as she spoke. And were taken down near verbatim in short hand, transcribed and set into galleys overnight. One such set of proofs forms the original manuscript for this book. For the most part, each chapter in this book encompasses a single lecture. The lectures are left in the same order as they were given, swinging between psychology and the use of the materials. India’s diversity of language, social custom and religious practice enriched her research. During this time, Dr. Montessori worked with children in Madras and put into practice her theories of adapting the environment, furniture and the Practical Life materials to local conditions. In these lectures, Maria Montessori speaks with the mature wisdom of a lifetime spent studying, not just early childhood, but human development as a whole and gives a complete, wonderful and colorful overview of her pedagogy and philosophy.

Montessori-Pädagogik und frühe Kindheit: eine Revolution in der Erziehung?

Abstract/Notes: Der vorliegende Band 9 der Reihe mit dem Titel „Montessori-Pädagogik und frühe Kindheit“ ist entstanden im Anschluss an eine Tagung, die von der deutschen Montessori-Vereinigung im Herbst 2003 in der Thomas-Morus-Akademie in Bensberg bei Köln durchgeführt wurde. In der aktuellen Bildungsdiskussion erkennt man zunehmend die Bedeutung der Förderung des jungen Menschen in der frühen Kindheit. Denn hier werden bereits entscheidende Grundlagen für die weitere Entwicklung gelegt. Die Tagung der Montessori-Vereinigung stand unter der Leitfrage, welche Impulse die seit Jahrzehnten weltweit erprobte und bewährte Pädagogik Maria Montessoris (1870 – 1952) und ihre Weiterentwicklung für diese Aufgabe zu geben vermag. Die Ergebnisse der Tagung werden in diesem Band dokumentiert. Ergänzend sind einige Texte und Materialien hinzugefügt, u. a. ein erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzter Vortrag Maria Montessoris aus ihrem Spätwerk zum Thema „Das junge Kind in der Familie“. Die Herausgeber arbeiten am wissenschaftlichen Zentrum für Montessori-Pädagogik am Institut für Schulpädagogik und Allgemeine Didaktik der Westfälischen Wilhelms-Universität in Münster. / Conference proceedings, 2003, Bensberg bei Köln.

Evolution of the Primary Program in Six Kentucky Schools

Available from: ERIC

Publication: Notes from the Field: Education Reform in Rural Kentucky, vol. 6, no. 1

See More

Abstract/Notes: As part of an 8-year study of education reform in rural Kentucky, this report examines the primary program that has evolved in six rural elementary schools as a result of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA), which requires that grades K-3 be replaced by a nongraded program. This change aimed to eliminate failure in the first 2 years of schooling and prepare all children for the fourth grade by allowing them to progress at their own developmental rate. Seven mandates for this primary program included developmentally appropriate practices, multiage and multiability classrooms, continuous progress, authentic assessment, qualitative reporting to parents, professional teamwork, and positive parent involvement. This report discusses the relationship of the primary program to other KERA strands, the study methodology, and findings. Reform implementation was hindered by uneven time lines, lack of guidance from the state department, slow formation and organization of school councils, uncertainties about appropriate instructional practices, and KERA mandates for "critical attributes" of primary classrooms. Primary teachers at all study schools attempted to implement the attributes within the first 2 years upon receiving training and new materials, but program implementation was slowed due to over-emphasis on the critical attributes, legislative adjustments, lack of perceived fit to reforms in grades 4-12, and questions of efficacy. Program development at the local level was influenced by principal's leadership, teacher beliefs, school climate, and local response. Attaining program goals may require reinforcing the intent of the primary program and articulating how teachers can infuse challenging content into the primary program in ways that prepare students to meet state academic expectations. Case studies of four primary schools are included. (SAS)
