Abstract/Notes: This article examines the role played by the conferences of the New Education Fellowship (NEF) in the emerging disciplinary field of the sciences of education between the two world wars. As Fuchs points out in an article in the present issue, the field of education at this time was being internationalized, and, being an international movement, the field impacted on by the NEF was international in scope.1 As will be seen, the ideas and practices of the new education were mediated by national cultural differences and thus their impact on the disciplinary field varied from nation to nation.2 In addition, the development of the field in terms of journals, conferences and its institutionalization within nations was uneven, which presents further difficulties when trying to evaluate the impact of the NEF's conferences. Much of the following discussion focuses on their impact on the disciplinary field in England though, as will be seen, not exclusively so. One of the distinguishing features of the NEF other than its international scope was that it was a movement that connected lay enthusiasts for the educational reforms associated with the new education with major figures in the developing disciplines of psychology and education, such as Carl Gustav Jung, Jean Piaget and John Dewey. The relation between these lay and professional constituencies is examined and conclusions drawn regarding the professionalizing process in the field and the impact of the conferences on educational research and its institutionalization.

Abstract/Notes: Discipline is very important to be developed early on, while the definition of discipline itself is giving an understanding to which children should be obeyed and which should be avoided. Discipline also teaches children about making mistakes will certainly contain a number of consequences, for this reason the function of punishment in children's education. Discipline is a behavioral value that can be done by force and can be done voluntarily. This Montessori-based learning model can build discipline starting from getting children to tidy up their former food, washing dishes, being able to take responsibility for the assignments given by their teacher, which has been applied in kindergarten Awliya, Cirebon. This research uses descriptive qualitative method that seeks to provide background, unique characteristics. The data obtained through interviews, observation and documentation. The results showed that children in the Awliya Kindergarten in Cirebon City could build their discipline through a Montessori-based learning model. This habit is a rare beginning in building discipline in early childhood.

Abstract/Notes: V magistrski nalogi smo združili področji angleškega jezika in predšolske vzgoje. Osredotočili smo se na sodobne pristope poučevanja tujega jezika v vrtcu Montessori ter želeli ugotoviti, kako predšolski otroci usvajajo tuj jezik. V teoretičnem delu smo pregledali teorijo pedagogike Montessori in značilnosti učenja ter poučevanja tujega jezika v predšolskem obdobju. Empirični del smo zastavili tako, da je združil obe področji. V Hiši otrok Antonina v Biljah pri Novi Gorici smo s pomočjo opazovalnega lista pridobili potrebne informacije, s katerimi smo odgovorili na že prej zastavljena raziskovalna vprašanja ter potrdili oziroma zavrnili zastavljene hipoteze. Pri opazovanju smo se osredotočili na strategije poučevanja angleškega jezika, metode dela, tematike učnih ur, raznolikost dejavnosti, uporabljene materiale, aktivnost otrok, uporabo angleškega jezika, odziv vzgojitelja na napake otrok in na napredek otrok ob večkratni ponovitvi individualnih in skupinskih dejavnosti. Ker sta vzgojiteljici med učenjem angleščine nenehno uporabljali angleški jezik, so se otroci poleg besedišča učili tudi melodijo in ritem jezika, kar jim bo pomagalo pri nadaljnjem učenju angleščine. Koncept Montessori poskuša otroke izoblikovati tako, da bodo v nadaljnjem življenju samostojni, odgovorni in potrpežljivi. Otroci se preko različnih pravil in dejavnosti tega učijo. [In this Master's thesis we combined English language and preschool education. We focused on modern ways of teaching and learning a foreign language in Montessori kindergarten. In theoretical part we took a look at theory of Montessori pedagogy and theory of learning a foreign language in kindergarten. In empirical part we combined these two together. In Hiša otrok Antonina in Bilje near Nova Gorica we organised an observation of a group of children from the second age group in kindergarten. In our observations we used observation sheets. With those, we obtained the information we were interested in. During our ten observations we focused on seventeen points of our observation sheet. The first part contained basic information like the name of the observer, the name of the teacher, number of children, age group, theme and lesson aims, goals of the activities, methods used, didactic materials, the language of instructions, comprehension of instructions, teacher's reaction to children's mistakes, teacher's usage of English language, whether the children waited for a specific material or they focused their attention on something else, whether children were active during different tasks, whether children returned to the same material and an observation of individual's and group's multiple usage of the same material.]
