Available from: St. Catherine University

Abstract/Notes: This action research project was completed to test the impact of a series of lessons centered around empathy and building social skills on the students and community of a Montessori elementary classroom. The setting was a suburban school in a classroom of 15 children ages six to nine. The students were primarily Caucasian and coming from middle class families. Data was collected using a tally sheet, observational field notes, a series of journal prompts and a pre/post survey. Both Grace and Courtesy lessons and storytelling sessions were part of the intervention plan. The children participated in a variety of ways including role playing, discussions, and story sharing. The results showed that the lessons did improve the interactions between the children as well as the feelings of community. The children developed a common language and skills to more positively navigate difficult interactions.

How Social Emotional Development Skills Gained in High Quality Public School Prekindergarten Impact Kindergarten Academic Readiness

Available from: East Tennessee State University

See More

Abstract/Notes: Longitudinal research has demonstrated that children’s emotional and social skills are linked to their early academic achievement (Wentzel & Asher, 1995). Children who have difficulty paying attention, following directions, getting along with others, and controlling negative emotions like anger and distress do not do as well in school (Arnokl et al., 1999; McClelland et al., 2000). Academic achievement in the early years of schooling appears to be built on a firm foundation of children’s social emotional skills (Ladd, Kochenderfer, & Coleman, 1997; O’Neil et al., 1997). Higher quality prekindergarten programs are associated with the early years of schooling and more positive academic outcomes in children (Burchinal et al., 2000). Investments in early childhood programs by state and federal governments have been made with a goal of improving school readiness for low income children. These investments are based on findings that show a link between program quality and children’s academic outcomes. Studies of model programs show that intensive early childhood services can improve children’s cognitive, 2 academic, and social skills with gains maintained into adulthood (Burchinal, Kainz, & Cai, in press). The purpose of this study was to create knowledge that indicates the influence of the social emotional skills children gain by completing prekindergarten. Schools in Sevier County, Tennessee that have prekindergarten classrooms in place were chosen for this study because kindergarten is the next experience children will have after pre-k. Kindergarten teachers in the schools chosen were purposefully selected as participants. Kindergarten teachers have the opportunity to make comparisons of differences in academic readiness of students who have completed prekindergarten and the students who have not been in a school environment. Kindergarten teachers may be able to conclude from classroom observation of the 2 groups if there is a difference in academic readiness. Home environments with strong parental involvement were most kindergarten teachers’ first choice for early learning and kindergarten preparation. Teachers realization that a strong home environment is not available to all children encouraged them to appreciate having a high quality public school prekindergarten as an alternative. Kindergarten teachers overall perceptions about the readiness of children who enter their classroom after completing prekindergarten were positive.

Abstract/Notes: The Erasmus+ KA201 project PEARL “Emotional Empathic Proximal Learning-Educational Environment” (2018-1-IT02-KA201-048515) is a project that aims to develop and validate an educational model, innovative and replicable at an international level, aimed at the very first childhood, 0–6 years, which favors the growth of children through an empathic and emotional proximal learning educational environment based on group activities. With PEARL Education Model, it is aimed to develop an emotional, emphatic and proximal learning environment. In this article, The PEARL Education Model, its features and experimental design of the project is introduced. To get more information about the project, visit: https://pearl-project.org/ webpage.

The Perfect Storm of Challenging Students: Fifteen Strategies to Support the Socio-Emotional Learning and Education of the Whole Learner

Available from: IGI Global

Book Title: Multifaceted Strategies for Social-Emotional Learning and Whole Learner Education

Pages: 211-245

See More

Abstract/Notes: This chapter explores 15 strategies being employed at various public military charter schools across the United States to support the socio-emotional learning and education of the whole learner. These research-based strategies are intended to overcome and vanquish the adverse childhood experiences (identified in a Kaiser health study), various forms of trauma, and typical “at risk” factors so common amongst families who tend to choose public military academies in the hopes these schools will “fix” the many challenges their children face. Through a careful examination of each strategy (including its research basis and benefits and challenges), the author provides a glimpse into a possible formula other public and private schools might consider employing to meet the socio-emotional and educational needs of students impacted by a cacophony of life's challenges.

Abstract/Notes: The goal of this qualitative thesis was study how Montessori pedagogy meets social guidance and social rehabilitation in a mental health rehabilitation housing unit. Upbringing, as a concept, was a uniting factor. The goal was to develop client work and make tacit knowledge visible through theory. By strengthening and supporting tacit knowledge, opportunity is given to the birth of new ideas thus increasing deliberation in work life. This thesis discusses socio-pedagogical work orientation, where theory and practice are combined forming an entirety, practical science. The theoretical base creates a prerequisite to the development of knowledge in practice. The thesis was done in collaboration with a working unit and empirical research material was gathered through interviewing personnel with a semi-structured questionnaire format. The questions were based on the six basic principles of the Montessori pedagogy. The meeting was seen in practice from the patients perspective, through observing natures significance and functionality in different ways. Instead, there was no meeting with customers involved in active assessment and documentation. Interviewees felt that tacit knowledge received theoretical background and interviews generated ideas. The pedagogical principles of the Montessori method often meet the principles of social guidance and social rehabilitation, and thus this study is applicable in many different operational environments. / Tämän kvalitatiivisen opinnäytetyön tarkoitus oli tutkia miten Montessori-pedagogiikka kohtaa sosiaaliohjauksen ja sosiaalisen kuntoutuksen mielenterveyskuntoutujien asumisyksikössä. Kasvatus käsitteenä oli yhdistävä tekijä. Tavoitteena oli asiakastyön kehittäminen sekä hiljaisen tiedon näkyväksi tekeminen teorian kautta. Vahvistamalla ja tukemalla hiljaista tietoa voidaan mahdollistaa myös työn kehittämistä uusien syntyvien ideoiden pohjalta sekä lisätä näin harkintaa työn teossa. Opinnäytetyötä ohjasi sosiaalipedagoginen työorientaatio, jossa teoria ja käytäntö kohtaavat muodostaen kokonaisuuden, käytännöllisen tieteen. Teoreettinen perusta luo edellytyksiä tiedon kehittymiselle käytäntöön. Opinnäytetyö on tehty yhteistyössä työelämän kumppanin kanssa ja empiirinen tutkimusaineisto saatiin haastattelemalla henkilökuntaa puoli strukturoiduilla haastattelukysymyksillä, jotka pohjautuivat Montessori-pedagogiikan kuudesta peruselementistä. Kohtaaminen näkyi käytännössä esimerkiksi asiakaslähtöisyytenä, luonnon merkityksen huomioimisena sekä toiminnallisuuden hyödyntämisenä eritavoin. Sen sijaan kohtaamista ei tapahtunut asiakkaiden osallisuudessa aktiiviseen arviointiin sekä dokumentoinnissa. Haastateltavat kokivat, että hiljainen tieto sai teoreettista taustaa ja haastattelut herättivät pohtimaan asioita. Montessori-pedagogiikan peruselementit kohtaavat suurelta osin sosiaaliohjauksen sekä sosiaalisen kuntoutuksen ja näin ollen tämä tutkimukseni on sovellettavissa moniin erilaisiin toiminta ympäristöihin.
