Montessori method of education - Criticism, interpretation, etc.

Abstract/Notes: This article concerns three fundamental dimensions of all educational methods: technical, epistemological, and cultural. We perceive them as equally important in the process of (re)creating and using any educational method. It seems to us that the technical dimension is quite often the only one or at least the most essential one in the area of Polish educational practices, and sometimes also in the theory of education. This situation is, however, undesirable since it may lead to the decontextualisation of the methods, and – as a consequence – limit their educational potential. Referring to the Montessori approach and more specifi cally to one of the most signifi cant concepts within the method – namely to the idea of „prepared environment” in which three aspects can be distinguished: material, structural – dynamic, and personal, we describe the roles that they play in the procedures of constructing teaching methods showing their integral character.

Abstract/Notes: Language has a noteworthy role in the cognitive development and social ability of an individual. However, a delay in language could affect an individual ability to think critically. Tis could be breached through impactful method of instruction from elementary school. Thus, this study examined the differential effectiveness of Montessori didactic and Direct Instructional methods on reasoning ability of children with hearing impairment in Lagos State. Te sample size was 29 pupils comprising 15 male and 14 female pupils with hearing impairment. Te Reasoning Ability Test was used to gather relevant data while mean, standard deviation, mean difference, Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) and Least Significant Difference (LSD) were the statistical tool used to analyse the data. The study found that both Montessori Didactic Material and Direct Instruction method were efficacious in teaching pupils with hearing impairment. However, the former was more effective. The teaching methods do not have significant gender effect on pupils with hearing impairment. It was recommended that Montessori didactic method should be employed in teaching elementary school pupils because it encourages active participation in learning process in form of self- direction and independence not minding gender, intellectual and economic disparities

Abstract/Notes: Primary School education in Germany is characterized by a strong belief that didactic theory and practice must move towards the “individualization” of teaching and learning. This is considered to be the best way of acknowledging the heterogeneity of learners: Each student should be able to learn on his or her own pace and follow his or her own way of learning. Although these concepts are rather popular in German pedagogical literature, empirical evidence supporting these arguments are rare. Most notably missing are studies on a micro-level of teaching and learning. The research which is reported in this chapter aims at discussing individualized teaching and learning at the level of classroom practices and practical demands. The chapter presents and discusses two pieces of empirical data. It shows an observation of a student working with a learning device called the “pharmacy”, a complex learning tool used in Maria Montessori schools. And secondly, it presents the transcript of a teacher-student-interaction on learning to read. The discussion points to the structure of child-centered teaching and learning: Many of the students’ activities have the character of a routine piece of work, the accuracy of the handling seems to be more important than the understanding. The interaction between teachers and students is characterized by the fact that it is one-to-one interaction within a group of learners who have diverse needs. Hence, the teacher-student-interaction is under pressure to make it result in a success. For “child-centered“ learning there seems to be a strong tendency to focus on procedures keeping the students busy when it comes to organizing the autonomy and self-reliance of learning.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s method left a deep and rich renovating educational footprint in the city of Barcelona before the Franco regime (1939). An active, cheerful, playful, co-educational, science-based system, in which the child is the protagonist. The teacher accompanies the students, trying to respect their rhythms in their personal learning itinerary. The Montessori revolution was possible because the Mancomunitat de Catalunya, the Diputació de Barcelona and the municipal administration believed in it, created schools, Case dei Bambini, and promoted continuous teacher training through courses, seminars, and Summer Schools. / El mètode de la doctora Maria Montessori va deixar una profunda i rica petjada educativa i renovadora a la ciutat de Barcelona abans del règim franquista (1939).

El professorat acompanya l’alumnat procurant respectar el ritme en l’itinerari personal d’aprenentatge. La revolució montessoriana fou possible perquè la Mancomunitat de Catalunya, la Diputació de Barcelona i l’administració municipal hi van creure, van crear escoles, Cases dels Nens, i van promoure la formació continuada dels mestres a través de cursets, seminaris i Escoles d’Estiu / El método de la doctora Maria Montessori dejó una profunda y rica huella educativa y renovadora en la ciudad de Barcelona antes del régimen franquista (1939).

Abstract/Notes: Objetivou-se apresentar reflexões acerca das contribuições do Método de Maria Montessori em um contexto atual, considerando o desenvolvimento da autonomia da criança nos anos iniciais da Educação Básica. Quanto ao método, realizou-se uma pesquisa do tipo revisão bibliográfica levando em conta as contribuições de diversos autores, observando as características da Padagogia de Montessori e suas reflexões metodológicas e didáticas no desenvolvimento da autonomia da criança na educação básica e sua atuação no Brasil, sucedendo com abordagem teórica e metodológica da Pedagogia Tradiconal e da Pedagogia de Waldorf para subsidiar a análise reflexiva do modelo montessoriano. Com os resultados, percebeu-se que a Pedagogia de Montessori se faz presente em 62 unidades educacionais distribuídas em todas as regiões brasileiras, podendo ser compreendida como uma alternativa pedagógica alinhada aos princípios reguladores da BNCC e PCN, e constatou-se a falta de estudos que apontem o desenvolvimento da Pedagogia de Montessori em escolas públicas que prestam serviços à Educação Infantil e Ensino Fundamental. Pode-se concluir que a Pedagogia de Montessori vem contribuindo de forma significativa para a aprendizagem da criança em seu desenvolvimento educacional com autonomia e liberdade, e através das abordagens lúdicas e aplicação do modelo em ciclos por faixa etária estimula a construção do conhecimento e melhor interação no ambiente educacional. [The objective was to present reflections on the contributions of the Maria Montessori Method in a current context, considering the development of the child's autonomy in the early years of Basic Education. As for the method, a bibliographic review research was carried out, taking into account the contributions of several authors, observing the characteristics of Montessori Padagogy and its methodological and didactic reflections on the development of children's autonomy in basic education and its performance in Brazil, succeeding with the theoretical and methodological approach of Traditional Pedagogy and of Waldorf Pedagogy to support the reflective analysis of the Montessori model. With the results, it was noticed that Montessori Pedagogy is present in 62 educational units distributed in all Brazilian regions, which can be understood as a pedagogical alternative aligned with the regulatory principles of BNCC and PCN, and there was a lack of studies that point to the development of Montessori Pedagogy in public schools that provide services to Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. It can be concluded that Montessori Pedagogy has been making a significant contribution to the learning of children in their educational development with autonomy and freedom, and through playful approaches and application of the model in cycles by age group, stimulates the construction of knowledge and better interaction in the educational environment.]

Abstract/Notes: Dies ist ein Leitfaden für die Verwendung der Montessori-Materialien im Klassenzimmer. Es zeigt, wie man ein "Kinderhaus" einrichtet - eine Lernumgebung, in der die Kinder ihre eigenen Meister sein können und frei sind, in ihrem eigenen Tempo zu lernen. Die Materialien sind von Natur aus logisch und ästhetisch ansprechend und wurden entwickelt, um die visuellen, auditiven und taktilen Wahrnehmungen des Kindes zu schärfen. Die Rolle des Erwachsenen ist es, das Kind experimentieren zu lassen, seine eigenen Fehler wahrzunehmen und seine eigenen Risiken beim Lernen einzugehen.
