Children's Memories Of Their Montessori Experience

Available from: ProQuest

Publication: Montessori Life, vol. 23, no. 2

Pages: 30-33

Abstract/Notes: This article discusses the results of a survey conducted at the Princeton Montessori School (PMS) in New Jersey, a school serving age levels from infants through middle school. The author designed a series of five to six questions about memories of activities, teachers, and friends for all current K-8 students with a minimum of 1 year of Montessori schooling and for former students for whom she had contact information. The study suggests that the Montessori approach as practiced at the PMS works. Results in areas of "memories of classroom" and "favorite works" are consistent in supporting the use of concrete materials for internalization of abstract concepts. Responses from all areas of this study at PMS provide support for Montessori educators' implementation of the principles of independence, freedom to choose, socialization, and movement in their classrooms. Students participating in the study liked food work because they could eat, move around, and share. They enjoyed and remember the concrete materials, especially the math materials because of their beauty and concrete quality. All levels enjoyed being outdoors and those in the Elementary and Middle School programs, in particular, liked having specials, not only because of the activity, but because they developed skills while having fun.

Abstract/Notes: The development of error monitoring is central to learning and academic achievement. However, few studies exist on the neural correlates of children’s error monitoring, and no studies have examined its susceptibility to educational influences. Pedagogical methods differ on how they teach children to learn from errors. Here, 32 students (aged 8–12 years) from high-quality Swiss traditional or Montessori schools performed a math task with feedback during fMRI. Although the groups’ accuracies were similar, Montessori students skipped fewer trials, responded faster and showed more neural activity in right parietal and frontal regions involved in math processing. While traditionally-schooled students showed greater functional connectivity between the ACC, involved in error monitoring, and hippocampus following correct trials, Montessori students showed greater functional connectivity between the ACC and frontal regions following incorrect trials. The findings suggest that pedagogical experience influences the development of error monitoring and its neural correlates, with implications for neurodevelopment and education.

Abstract/Notes: "Just as every child is human, every child, no matter the circumstances, deserves an education that promotes his or her development to the fullest human potential." Using Cornerstone Montessori, a public Montessori school, as a case study, Liesl Taylor sets out to show the importance and impact that the Montessori approach can have on the lives of children in crisis. Using many specific examples, she highlights how to support elementary children in crisis through an understanding and commitment to the characteristics of the child of this age.

Available from: St. Catherine University

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this action research was to study the effects that daily proactive restorative circle practice (PRCP) had on speaking skills, listening, and positive classroom culture amongst Montessori Children's House students. The research took place over a four week period of time in a two way immersion Children's House in a Montessori public charter school in the Midwest. The population included 8 students ages 4-5.5 years. Students participated in a daily proactive restorative circle each afternoon. The researcher also observed students during lunch to collect data on any influence the PRCP had outside of circle time. Data was collected through field notes, tallies, and a sense of community scale. The intervention suggested an increase in speaking skills and maintaining positive classroom culture. Students also demonstrated an increased sense of responsibility and accountability to the implementation of PRCP. Continued research is needed to determine the effectiveness of PRCP with more participants as well as how the effects of the PRCP transfer over to the general classroom experience.
