Abstract/Notes: This chapter describes the development and implementation of a programme providing higher and continuing education for imprisoned women in Hawai‘i. The purpose of the chapter is to show how the programme, which was based on principles of restorative justice and peace education, connects to and illustrates peace psychology. The programme consists of educational and restorative components. The education component provides women with opportunities to increase self-efficacy and personal agency. The project design motivates inner and relational peace by applying Montessori’s peace education and cooperative learning theories. The restorative re-entry planning process increases respect, empathy, and redemption. The value of respect advanced by Montessori and restorative justice is embedded in the project. Through cooperative learning and restorative re-entry planning practices, the women build supportive and peaceful relationships both internally and relationally to help decrease the structural violence that they have experienced. This chapter describes research supporting education for incarcerated women to address structural violence. The chapter includes an explanation of concepts and applications of cooperative learning and restorative re-entry planning circles and discusses their effectiveness in generating inner and relational peace. This chapter describes how education can increase incarcerated women’s personal agency, self-efficacy, and confidence, creating inner and relational peace, leading to successful re-entry and decreased domestic violence. The program addresses the connection between lack of personal agency and domestic violence, problems shared by many women, incarcerated and otherwise, throughout the world. The programme, created and conducted in Hawai‘i, could be replicated by other correctional institutions.

Abstract/Notes: Stress and burnout among teachers are serious problems because of the negative consequences associated with them that have contributed to the current crisis in the American education system. Until the problems of teacher stress and burnout are understood and addressed, efforts to restructure American education cannot succeed. This study assessed the relationships among perceived autonomy, perceived transformational leadership style and burnout in public elementary teachers, and the moderating/mediatinginfluence of teacher orientation (Montessori and traditional) on burnout levels. An integration of Maslach’s multi-dimensional burnout theory, self-determination theory, and the theory of transformational leadership formed the theoretical foundation of the study. A nonexperimental correlational design was used with survey methodology. A convenience sample of 82 public elementary teachers were recruited via educator social media sites and professional associations. Participants completed an online survey viaSurvey Monkey. Multiple regression analyses determined strong negative relationships among the predictor variables and the three dimensions of burnout as well as the significant predictive power of the independent variables. Moderation analyses determined a significant influence of teacher orientation across these relationships. The mediation analysis determined that teaching autonomy was a significant mediator between teacher orientation and emotional exhaustion burnout. The results from this study may be used for positive social change by developing strategies to mitigate burnout in public elementary teachers, increase engagement, improve teacher retention, ultimately improving student achievement and engagement.

Abstract/Notes: This study undertook to investigate the practical application of the Montessori method in London Montessori pre-schools, and how this relates to the individual teacher's interpretation of the theory underpinning the method. This entailed an examination and analysis of the understanding and attitudes of teachers towards the practicalities of Montessori theory, as well as the relationship between that interpretation and the subsequent practice. Hence the key research aimed to determine the position and attitudes of a selection of Montessori teachers in schools today...

Looping: Supporting Student Learning through Long-Term Relationships

Available from: ERIC

See More

Abstract/Notes: Looping refers to the increasingly common practice of keeping groups of students together for two or more years with the same teacher. This booklet, first in a series of "Themes in Education" provides information on the educational practice of looping and includes selected current references on the topic. The booklet outlines the history of this practice, delineates its operating principles, differentiates looping from multi-age placement, and describes the academic and social benefits of the practice. Using a question and answer format, the booklet also answers questions commonly asked by parents, students, teachers, and administrators about looping. The booklet concludes with a description of the responsibilities and mission of the Northeast and Islands Regional Educational Laboratory at Brown University. Contains 32 references. (KB)

Relationships Among Perceptual-Motor Tasks: Tracing and Copying

Available from: APA PsycNet

Publication: Journal of Educational Psychology, vol. 66, no. 5

Pages: 731-735

Abstract/Notes: Asked 39 kindergartners, 16 1st graders, 38 2nd graders, 16 4th graders, and 20 undergraduates to copy, trace, or point to the beginning of a set of shapes. The aim was to determine the extent to which sequential behavior (starting points and stroke progressions) was consistent across tasks. With one notable exception, behavior was consistent. The exception was the extent to which children started at the left rather than the right, a behavior that was far less frequent when tracing or pointing to the beginning of a shape than when copying. Results point to the feasibility of using sequential analyses to explore questions of generality and transfer on graphic tasks.

Abstract/Notes: Explicita-se as relações interdisciplinares na pedagogia através da epistemologia genética, analisando uma formulação teórica específica, no caso a pedagogia montessori. Através da operaciomalização da epistemologia genética verifica-se se ela é capaz de captar relações interdisciplinares no interior de uma formulação pedagógica específica e se esta pode ser considerada interdisciplinar. A pesquisa desenvolvida traz uma contribuição à pedagogia pois operacionaliza um modelo de análise de relações interdisciplinares no interior da pedagogia. O estudo concluiu que o modelo psicogenético possibilitou captar relações interdisciplinares no interior de formulações teóricas bem como possibilitou uma análise genuína da pedagogia montessori demonstrando o seu potencial em termos de formação integral do homem. [The interdisciplinary relationships in pedagogy are explained through genetic epistemology, analyzing a specific theoretical formulation, in this case, the montessori pedagogy. Through the operationalization of genetic epistemology, it is verified whether it is capable of capturing interdisciplinary relationships within a specific pedagogical formulation and whether this can be considered interdisciplinary. The research developed brings a contribution to pedagogy as it operationalizes a model for the analysis of interdisciplinary relationships within pedagogy. The study concluded that the psychogenetic model made it possible to capture interdisciplinary relationships within theoretical formulations as well as a genuine analysis of Montessori pedagogy, demonstrating its potential in terms of the integral formation of man.]
