Freier Umgang drei bis sechsjähriger Kinder mit Montessori-Material [Free use of Montessori material by three to six year old children]

Abstract/Notes: In this discussion of the psychology of the Montessori method and Gestalt play the question is raised whether the use of Montessori material for teaching purposes represses spontaneous play with it. Observations on 84 children prove that free use differs greatly from didactic use. The Montessori psychology overlooks the genetic primacy of primitive kinds of experience, not visual, but tactile, motor, acoustic, and especially volitional and affective. It fosters an artificially precocious sensory education and intellectualization, incompatable with the psychology of the Leipzig school. Children's structural capacities develop best in a normal home with many kinds of play material, but without teaching.

Abstract/Notes: Različiti pedagoški sustavi i filozofije podučavanja djeci na jedinstveni način omogućuju stjecanje znanja i jačanje jakih područja. Jedno on njih je i Montessori pedagogika koja naglašava individualnost djeteta i koja se temelji na razvojnim potrebama djeteta. Njena značajka jest strukturirano okruženje u kojem se djeca ili učenik susreće s materijalima odnosno pomagalima pomoću kojih se stvaraju različita okruženja. Upravo to pripremljeno okruženje i strukturirani materijali slijede osobine djece sa smetnjama autističkog spektra. Svrha članka je prikazati značajke Montessori pedagogike i osobine odnosno funkcioniranje djece sa smetnjama autističkog spektra i na konkretnom primjeru odrediti zajedničke značajke. [Different pedagogical systems and philosophies of teaching children in a unique way enable the acquisition of knowledge and the strengthening of strong areas. One of them is Montessori pedagogy which emphasizes the individuality of the child and which is based on the developmental needs of the child. Its feature is a structured environment in which children or students encounter materials or aids that create different environments. It is this prepared environment and structured materials that follow the characteristics of children with autism spectrum disorders. The purpose of the article is to present the features of Montessori pedagogy and the characteristics and functioning of children with autism spectrum disorders and to determine common features on a concrete example.]

Abstract/Notes: "MONTESSORI HOLDS FIRST CLASS HERE. Famous Teacher Sways 100 Tots with Personality and Without Words. Using the world famous Montessorl technique, swaying more than 100 little tots by her wonderful personality, and winning their understanding and co-operation without the medium of the spoken word, Madame Marie Montessori today, for the first time since her arrival in Southern California, taught a class of children in the Boyle Heights intermediate school. Three classes, chief among them the Montessori class from the East Seventh street school, assembled at the Boyle Heights Intermediate building shortly before 1 o’clock. All were tiny Montessori students, but most of them spoke only English. Promptly at 1 o’clock, the famous Italian educator, founder of the system which bears her name, appeared. She spoke only Italian. But with every gesture, every smile, a specific communication seemed to pass from her to the little folk gathered round her, and within a few moments after her coming, the room was alive with voluntary activities of the little boys and girls, busy over a self-chosen occupation or game. Miss Katherine Moore, who introduced the Montessori technique in Los Angeles after studying it with its founder in Italy, acted as interpreter for Madame Montessori. Today's class was the first in a two months’ demonstration course to be given in this city by Montessori. It is the first time she has ever established a training course outside of Rome, and eminent educators from all parts of the country are coming to the city to study under her during the term of thls course."

Abstract/Notes: Improving academic achievement for students of color has long been the subject of debate among advocates of education reform (Anyon, 2013; Breitborde & Swiniarski, 2006; Payne, 2008). Some scholars have advocated for the Montessori method as an alternative educational approach to address some chronic problems in public education (Lillard, 2005; Murray, 2011, 2015; Torrance, 2012). Montessori programs are expanding in public schools (National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector, 2014c) at a time when the American public school population is more racially diverse than ever before (Maxwell, 2014). A review of the literature reflects a lack of consensus about the efficacy of Montessori elementary instruction for students of color in general, and lack of attention to outcomes for African American students specifically (Dawson, 1987; Dohrmann, Nishisda, Gartner, Lipsky, & Grimm, 2007; Lopata, Wallace, & Finn, 2005; Mallet & Schroeder, 2015). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of reading and math instruction for third grade African American students in public Montessori, traditional, and other school choice settings, using end-of-grade standardized test scores from a large, urban district in North Carolina. Stratified sampling was used to select demographically similar traditional and magnet schools for comparison. Group mean reading and math test scores were compared using factorial MANCOVA and MANOVA procedures. African American students at grade three were found to perform at significantly higher levels in both reading and math in public Montessori schools than in traditional schools. No statistically significant difference was found in math achievement between African American third grade students in public Montessori and other magnet programs, although the Montessori group did achieve at significantly higher levels in reading. This suggests that the Montessori method can be an effective pedagogy for African American students, particularly in reading. Based on these results, recommendations are provided for policy, practice, and future research.
