Abstract/Notes: Assessed whether Montessori's "cylinder block training hinders or facilitates" the acquisition of conservation using 32 kindergarten children.

"From pre- to posttest, conservation scores" of the Ss "decreased (5.75 to 4.80) while those of the control group increased (5.75 to 7.08)." It was found that the difference between the posttest scores of the 2 groups was significant. It is concluded that cylinder block training does not facilitate conservation and may hinder it.

Abstract/Notes: The microstudy presented is a psycho-pedagogical experiment, which consists in applying the Montessori-specific experimental factor to a group of pre-school children in the traditional system. The investigative approach is based on a comparative study, the results obtained being interpreted from both a quantitative and a qualitative point of view. In this paper we started from the premise that Montessori strategies foster the acquisition of reading and writing skills at pre-school age. The general objectives of the investigation are the introduction into the traditional experimental system of alternative methods of acquiring reading-writing skills specific to the Montessori system and the study of the Montessori system for the acquisition of reading and writing skills in methodical terms and from the point of view of the results obtained by applying these strategies.
