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.

Man and SuperNature: Lecture 12, September 27, 1946

Abstract/Notes: "Man and SuperNature" is a lyrical chapter in the 1946 London course following the emergence of Cosmic Education in Kodaikanal, India. Montessori contrasts the adaptation required of animals for their survival to conscious human adaptation. Animals exist and adapt to nature, but man can alter nature and change the environment. Montessori's article simplifies a deep distinction: Everything humans achieve in Supernature is either a better adaptation or is tragically adversarial. Montessori saw the positive possibilities of this process and described the progress of civilization as a process by which "Man takes all that exists in nature and puts it on a higher plane, that of Supernature."

Abstract/Notes: The development of the Montessori movement is followed from Montessori's birth and her work with children in Italy to its history in India, where Dr. Montessori lived and worked for ten years offering teacher training programs in India. These classes gave special consideration to conditions in India and placed particular emphasis on the Montessori method as a practical means to ensure and foster principles of nonviolence in the relationship between the adult and fhe child. Urgent tasks that still remain for the movement in India include wider availability to the poor and those in rural areas and the need for government involvement to achieve it. This article, in its historical approach, provides insight into Montessori international origins and their motivation for social change. (Reprinted from Around the Child I, 1956.)

Abstract/Notes: Intellectual disability is a serious lifelong disability that places heavy demands on society and the health system. The study was designed to determine the extent to which the intellectually challenged children are capable of improving their cognitive abilities as well as adaptive functioning through the Montessori Sensorial Training program when introduced in a different setting (i.e. special education school system). With randomised control trial (RCT) of pre-and post-testing, 30 children with mild intellectual disabilities were randomly allocated to Montessori Sensorial Training intervention condition (n = 15) and waitlist control condition (n = 15). The intervention group showed significant improvement in cognitive abilities (i.e. classification, seriation, recognition, ordination, and visual and auditory discrimination) as compared to the control group at post-assessment. Children who received training also showed improvement in communication and self-care domain as compared to the control group. This study provides evidence that Montessori Sensorial Training is not only effective for children going to mainstream schools but also for children with intellectual disabilities. Despite some limitations, the results of the study are encouraging and suggesting that Montessori Sensorial Training is an effective intervention to facilitate self-based learning, independence, and decision-making skills in children with mild intellectual disabilities.
