Doctoral Dissertation

Learning Processes of Highly Gifted Children in the Free Work of the Montessori Method - an Empirical Analysis on the Basis of Individual Case Studies in Montessori Primary Schools

See More

Abstract/Notes: The beginnings of the dissertation by Esther Grindel, holder of the Montessori diploma and former assistant at the Montessori Centre, also date back to this time. The survey analyses in an empirical way how and under which conditions highly gifted primary school children can learn according to their individual competencies and needs in the periods of Free Work, which is a characteristic way of learning in the Montessori Method. On the basis of four descriptive case studies of highly gifted students of a Montessori primary school typical structures of their ways of learning during the Montessori Free Work are investigated in a comparative analysis. The results, which are discussed in the context of current findings of the research on high abilities, are of great interest to both the Montessori schools and for the fostering at regular schools. A publication of the work as part of the series “Impulses of New Education” is in preparation.

Empowering Adolescents: A Multiple Case Study of U.S. Montessori High Schools

Adolescents, High schools, Montessori schools, Secondary education, Teenagers

See More

Abstract/Notes: This research examined five U.S. Montessori high school programs through a qualitative multiple case study. Data collected from school documents, students, and staff was used to characterize what constitutes Montessori education at the high school level, with the goal of informing Montessori practice at the high school level and providing a means for considering Montessori methodology as a tool for widespread high school reform. Findings indicate that it is not the specific curricular content that makes a high school program Montessori. In the school environments, there are family-like relationships between students and teachers, the staff focuses on supporting students’ emotional needs, students enjoy close relationships with their peers, and there is a culture of mutual respect and community cohesiveness.
