Abstract/Notes: This chapter discusses three of Maria Montessori’s writings about the education of young children, The Child in the Family (1936), The Secret of Childhood (1936), and The Absorbent Mind (1949). These chapters reflect her belief that education should begin at birth and that children should be encouraged to learn autonomously with respect for their own interests and timelines. The first book is a collection of texts from Montessori’s 1923 conferences in Brussels which provide the conceptual foundations and emerging practices of her innovative pedagogical vision focusing on the child from birth in a new way. In the second book, Montessori outlines her philosophy and pedagogy for a child’s education until age six, presenting a deeper look into the educational method developed for preschool-aged children. The third book focuses primarily on a child’s psychological development and is Montessori’s final work on the first six years of life.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s work discussed in the chapter, The Child, Society and The World – Unpublished Speeches and Writings, is based on her original speeches between 1930 and 1950. The writings cover a wide range of topics organized into six sections. Two sections speak directly to parents and teachers, urging them to respect children’s interests and occupations which allows them to build concentration and develop self-discipline. Another section considers diverse topics including social education, religious education, fantasy and fairy tales, and Montessori’s lesson on silence. The last section of the chapter outlines Montessori’s ultimate pedagogical aim: a new and better world achieved through the child based on what Montessori describes as cosmic education.

Peer Interactions During Storybook Reading on Children’s Knowledge Construction: An Experimental Study on K2 and K3 Children

Available from: Frontiers in Education

Publication: Frontiers in Education - Educational Psychology, vol. 9

See More

Abstract/Notes: This study explored the effects of peer interactions on kindergarten children’s construction of conservation and conflict resolution knowledge during storybook reading. Previous studies have identified that peer interactions can support the meaning-making processes of children in social relationships and problem-solving, but little is known about whether the interaction with mixed-age or more competent peers is more important in supporting knowledge construction. Sixty-four younger children in K2 and older children in K3 with similar socioeconomic backgrounds were recruited from a Montessori kindergarten in Kunming, China. An experimental design was applied to explore age group and conserver dominance effects on conservation and conflict resolution. Children were assigned randomly to eight groups in three 30-to-40-minute intervention sessions. Each session had a different theme for the children to learn about conservation and conflict resolution concepts and a hands-on activity to practice and discuss. ANOVAs were performed to test group effects, while multiple regression analyses were conducted to explore individual variations in age and pre-test scores in predicting post-test scores. Conservation knowledge was significantly better among children who differed in age groups in the post-test, but differences were not found in conflict resolution knowledge. Groups balanced with equal conservers and non-conservers improved the best, suggesting that peer social interactions can facilitate conservation and conflict resolution construction. These results provide new insights for early childhood educators to support peer interactions and children’s development. Implications, limitations, and future research are discussed.
