Abstract/Notes: Ginni Sackett delves into the many implications of grace and courtesy, from social relations and the basis of community to respect for the child's personality. Her point of departure is modern social living with grace and dignity. Hers is an exploration over two generations of seeing grace and courtesy as a comprehensive social view that is the greatest goal for the Montessori teacher to empower adults and children to live sociably. She suggests that standards have changed greatly over two or three generations. To live within the school microcosm of a "society by cohesion" means that grace and courtesy is pervasive with every material used and work chosen, implying that it is part of nature's plan demonstrated by Montessori children in a prepared environment with social life practiced daily.

Abstract/Notes: Mary Verschuur chronicles the outdoor work of Lincoln Montessori School in prairie, forest, and indoor greenhouse environments, pointing out the application of the prepared environment principles to the natural world. Implicit to the design are opportunities for caring, including various practical life exercises with outdoor tools blended into each habitat. The repeating cycles of nature and its seasons are part of the yearly cycle of children in multi-age groups, adding to sensory richness and hands-on tasks. Lincoln Montessori School demonstrates how schools can model simple and well-thought-out solutions with minimum expense and maximum engagement.
