Abstract/Notes: The multi-age teams (MATs) at one Georgia middle school fostered continuous, individual student progress unachievable in more conventional classrooms. In MAT groups, assignments to classes were based on students' interests, abilities, performance, and other maturational factors, regardless of chronological age. Opportunities for remediation and acceleration abounded. (MLH)

Abstract/Notes: Children are being introduced to organized sports programs at younger ages today. The first experience sets the stage for how they may view their physical competency and acceptance within a group. In these experiences, frequently, the coach is a well-intended parent who may not have any background in coaching or physical education training. Dr. Maria Montessori is widely known for her contributions to experiential learning for young children. Although Montessori addressed motor development through her pedagogical approach, it is rarely associated with physical education or sports. This article aims to provide some insight to educators, physical education teachers, coaches, and parents with an alternative approach to sport introduction through a Montessori theoretical lens which may allow children to develop a love for physical activity and/or future athletes.

Interior Design That Changes According to the Approaches Used in Preschool Education

Available from: IGI Global

Book Title: Contemporary Manifests on Design Thinking and Practice

Pages: 90-108

Abstract/Notes: Preschool education programs jointly focus on supporting the child's physical, mental, emotional, and social development; and helping them know themselves by gaining self-control. The preschool period is also the beginning of the process in which children aged 0-6 begin to socialize with other children and adults. How this socialization and knowledge transfer will occur varies according to the approaches used in preschool education. The division of the learning environment into functions and the provision of the environment need to be expected from each function, with furniture and other elements become as important as the learning approach. The interior and furniture needs, which change according to the focus of the educational approach, form the essence of this study. Within the scope of the study, four different educational approaches and educational environment expectations were examined. These approaches were determined as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, HighScope, and Waldorf, and the educational philosophy of each approach and the changing spaces and furniture were evaluated.

Pre-School Education in the ACT: An Evaluation and Comparison of the Traditional, the Montessori and the Weikart Approaches

Available from: University of Canberra

See More

Abstract/Notes: Since the 1980s, a variety of pre-school approaches has existed within the ACT Public School System. These approaches are in theory based on different educational ideologies and principles. The Field Study Project evaluates and compares three different educational models; existing classroom processes and procedures, and student achievements in a 'traditional', a modified Montessori and a Weikart pre-school currently operating in the ACT Public School System. Using selected criteria, an analysis of the three educational models, an ecological survey and student assessments were carried out to make the evaluations and comparisons. The analysis of the three educational models indicate different program orientations and instructional preferences in the different models. The ecological survey results suggest that the 'traditional', the modified Montessori and the Weikart approaches identify with the models they are based on. Nevertheless, educational trends and orientations are similar in the three programs, which are predominantly cognitively oriented. In contrast, teaching styles differ slightly. It is significant that the teacher in the 'traditional' program fulfills a more nurturing role, while her colleagues in the modified Montessori and the Weikart programs fulfill more instructional roles. The evaluation and comparison of the student assessments seems to indicate that there are no significant differences in achievement in drawing, specific cognitive tasks and in self-concept development between matched groups of learners in the three pre-schools. The findings support the notion that middle class children enrolled in approved pre-schools develop cognitive abilities regardless of the type of program they attend. The evaluation and comparison of the three existing approaches in the ACT suggests that the pre-school organisation in

The Slowdown of the Multiage Classroom: What Was Once a Popular Approach Has Fallen Victim to NCLB Demands for Grade-Level Testing

Available from: ERIC

Publication: School Administrator, vol. 62, no. 3

Pages: 22

See More

Abstract/Notes: In this article, the author discusses multiage education. Multiage education hailed as recently as 10 years ago as a promising way to restructure schools and boost student achievement but now has fallen on hard times. Interest in the issue has waned, with new research on the topic virtually nonexistent and attendance at national multiage conferences a fraction of what it once was. Schools across the country are cutting existing multiage programs, or choosing not to begin new ones. Even the state of Kentucky, which in 1990 heralded ungraded primary education as a linchpin of its sweeping school reform effort, has seen the scope of its multiage initiative reduced by half. Some trace the decline of multiage education to No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and its emphasis on standardized, grade-level testing. A list of additional resources and Web sites concludes this article.
