Learning Through Performing: Musical Theater in the Elementary Montessori Classroom

Abstract/Notes: [...]of these observations, and influenced by the teachings of Friedrich Froebel and Emile Jacques-Dalcroze, Montessori created a music curriculum that emphasized self-directed learning through instruments made specifically for children (Goodkin, 2002). Since we try to integrate musical theater into daily activities, rather than isolating this experience as an after-school program, we seek to choose shows that will highlight a unit or academic concept being taught in the classroom. Montessori was greatly opposed to teaching her students that imaginary characters, such as fairies or Santa Claus, exist (Montessori, 1997, p. 43). [...]we use musicals to continue building upon Montessori's philosophies of the purpose of schooling-to teach children about the real world, history, and social understanding (Montessori, 1964). [...]we imagine that she may have made accommodations for this growing art form, finding ways to integrate music, theater, and dance into her teaching and recognizing its importance within our communities and for our students.

The Challenge of Teaching Elementary Reading

Abstract/Notes: In this article, Aline Wolf discusses the challenges of teaching elementary reading at present time. She also raises her concern not only about the declining of reading skills, but also about the declining number of books that students actually read which creates a dilemma for teachers. She believes that the Montessori community must give priority to eliminating current deficiencies in reading. In brainstorming sessions, workshops, staff meetings, and professional Montessori consultations, she feels that Montessorians must grapple with these problems and decide on creative solutions consistent with Montessori traditions. One strategy she suggests is Elementary training courses, if they have not already done so, can adjust their curriculum to incorporate Montessori strategies for nonreaders at the elementary level. The very valuable exercise of word building can be upgraded for 6-and 7-year-olds. Phonetic readers can be found with higher interest content. The author argues that for developing readers educators should ask if the methods being used respect each child's individual interests. Does it meet his or her particular needs, whether for more help with phonograms or for a wider variety of challenging books? Does this new strategy lead each student to a love of reading? Does it weigh down the burgeoning reader with dubious tasks that usurp the time for actually reading books? In attempts to improve reading in elementary classes teachers should be certain that any procedures decided upon are in keeping with the cherished techniques that have distinguished Montessori education for over a century.
