The SchoolHome: Rethinking Schools for Changing Families

Educational change

Abstract/Notes: A century ago, John Dewey remarked that when home changes radically, school must change as well. With home, family, and gender roles dramatically altered in recent years, we are faced with a difficult problem: in the lives of more and more American children, no one is home. The Schoolhome proposes a solution. Drawing selectively from reform movements of the past and relating them to the unique needs of today's parents and children, Jane Martin presents a philosophy of education that is responsive to America's changed and changing realities. As more and more parents enter the workforce, the historic role of the domestic sphere in the education and development of children is drastically reduced. Consequently, Martin advocates removing the barriers between the school and the home--making school a metaphorical "home," a safe and nuturant environment that provides children with the experience of affection and connection otherwise missing or inconsistent in their lives. In this proposition, the traditional schoolhouse where children are drilled in the three Rs is transformed into a "schoolhome" where learning is animated by an ethic of social awareness. At a time when many school reformers are calling for a return to basics and lobbying for skills education and quick-fix initiatives, Martin urges us to reconsider the distinctive legacies of Dewey and Montessori and to conceive of a school that integrates the values of the home with those of social responsibility. With cultural diversity and gender equality among its explicit goals, the schoolhome expands upon Dewey's edict to educate the "whole child," seeking instead to educate all children in the culture's whole heritage. Martin eloquently challenges reformers to reclaim the founding fathers' vision of the nation as a domestic realm, and to imagine a learning environment whose curriculum and classroom practice reflect not merely an economic but a moral investment in the future of our children. More than a summons to action, this remarkable book is a call to rethink the assumptions we bring to the educational enterprise, and so, to act wisely.

Abstract/Notes: Dit onderzoek vond plaats in het buitengewoon lager onderwijs van het Nisansala Special Training Centre in Tudella, Sri Lanka. Het onderzoeksonderwerp ‘fijne motoriek’ werd mee bepaald door de inbreng van de leerkrachten tijdens een brainstormsessie. Nadien vond het eigenlijke onderzoek plaats in Groep A. We ontwikkelden een pre- en postmeting met kwantitatieve en kwalitatieve observaties tijdens enkele activiteiten en twee specifieke oefeningen, namelijk duim- en pincetgreep en oog- handcoördinatie. Tegelijkertijd maakten we veertien spelletjes en activiteiten om de fijne motoriek te trainen. Deze werden na de premeting ingezet in Groep A. Door onvoorziene omstandigheden vielen veel oefenmomenten weg en kon de postmeting niet uitgevoerd worden. Hierdoor konden we de evolutie van de leerlingen niet onderzoeken. De algemene conclusie van dit onderzoek was dat er verschillende spelletjes en activiteiten om fijne motoriek te trainen bestaan, maar dat deze niet allemaal even efficiënt, eenvoudig om te maken noch als fijn ervaren werden door de leerlingen. Daarom werd een opsomming gemaakt van de interessantste spelletjes en activiteiten. Vervolgens toonden de onderzoeksresultaten uit de premeting aan dat de leerlingen van Groep A reeds over een behoorlijke fijne motoriek beschikten, maar dat dit niet altijd tot uiting kwam doordat ze aan een traag tempo werkten en gevoelig waren voor afleidende stimuli in de klas.

Abstract/Notes: The following research assesses how reading and discussing stories that counter gender stereotypes can increase cooperation and decrease conflict between primary- and elementary-aged students of different genders, as well as to expand students’ conceptions of self and others beyond traditional gender expectations. The six-week study involved 50 participants total, 21 between the ages of 3 and 6 and 29 between the ages of 6 and 9 at two separate Montessori public charter schools in Minnesota. Each participant completed an activity pre- and post-intervention concerning the feminine and masculine traits that they would choose to describe themselves and those that could describe someone they’d want to be friends with. 10-minute observations were taken daily to record instances of cooperation and conflict between children of different genders. Pertinent quotes were recorded during observation periods and in discussions about the counter-stereotypical stories. Results showed an increase in the number of friendships between genders, and a greater number of traits chosen to describe selves and potential friends at the elementary school level. Further research in the area is needed to discover the long-term effects of counter-stereotypical literature, the importance of adults examining their own gender biases, and interventions beyond literature to counter patriarchal norms in classrooms.
