The 'Cosmic' Task of the Youngest Children – Direct, Anticipate or Respect? Experiences Working with Small Children

Available from: Stockholm University Press

Publication: Journal of Montessori Research and Education, vol. 2, no. 1

Pages: 1–12

Abstract/Notes: The article derived from Grazia Honegger Fresco’s years in close cooperation with Maria Montessori and Adele Costa Gnocchi. The author illustrates how small children from the moment they start using their hands and are standing unassisted on their own legs must act in their own way. The teacher must observe before acting and intervene as little as possible. Honegger Fresco follows the work of Montessori and Costa Gnocchi and she compares the findings with different fields of science, such as ethnology and neurology. As a result of her observations and experiences she points toward the relationship between a good childhood, and in the long term, human responsibility on Earth, using the concept “the Cosmic Task”. The method in this article is based on autoethnography, as the author shares her personal experience and reflections, both as a teacher and as an educator. The aim is to shed light on aspects regarding the needs of small children and to point at the essential role of adults, educators as well as parents. As Schiedi explains, autoethnography “extends its narrative horizon to a social, professional, organizational dimension of the self” (2016). During Honegger Fresco’s career, she was primarily inspired by Maria Montessori’s research about child development and children’s needs and rights, and she had continuously deepened her understanding by studying other researchers in this field. Thus, the article will share her conviction that by serving the creative spirit of the youngest children we will build a better future for our planet.

Abstract/Notes: Diese Arbeit versucht, den Betrachtungen und Aspekten, die das Kind in unserer Gesellschaft ausgehend vom Standpunkt Montessoris beleuchten, nachzugehen, wobei ich die Gemeinsamkeiten in den Montessoris und Millers pädagogischen Ansätzen feststelle. Laut Montessori und Miller ist das Kind ist als gleichwertiger Mensch anzuerkennen, und die Seele des Kindes erfordert eine besondere Feinfühligkeit des Erwachsenen für seine Bedürfnisse her. Es ist wichtig, die Kinder in ihren Fähigkeiten bestmöglich zu fördern. Im Bezug auf das pädagogische Spannungsverhältnis von Selbständigkeit und Zwang beschäftige ich mich mit dem Widerspruch von pädagogischer Norm und Funktion aus der Sicht der Kältestudien von Gruschka. Die Kältestudien verweisen auf die von den einzelnen Menschen unaufhebbar erfahrenen Widersprüche von der Norm der sozialen Allgemeinheit von Bildung und der Selektionsfunktion von den pädagogischen Institutionen. Schließlich sollten die gesellschaftlichen Strukturen, die Kälte als gesellschaftlich akzeptiertes Verhalten verursachen, bewusst wahrgenommen und reflektiert werden. Dafür ist es nötig, den Kindern so viel wie möglich Freiheitsspielraum zu geben, in der sie Erfahrungsmöglichkeiten haben. Zudem ist Schulbildung mit dem Leben der Kinder zusammenzubringen. den Kindern so viel wie möglich Freiheitsspielraum zu geben, in der sie Erfahrungsmöglichkeiten haben.

Zudem ist Schulbildung mit dem Leben der Kinder zusammenzubringen. [This work attempts to trace the considerations and aspects that illuminate the child in our society from the Montessori point of view, noting the similarities in the Montessori and Miller's pedagogical approaches. According to Montessori and Miller, the child is to be recognized as an equal human being, and the child's soul requires a special sensitivity on the part of the adult for its needs. It is important to support the children in their abilities in the best possible way. In relation to the pedagogical tension between independence and coercion, I deal with the contradiction between pedagogical norm and function from the point of view of Gruschka's cold studies. The cold studies point to the irreconcilable contradictions experienced by individuals between the norm of the social generality of education and the selection function of educational institutions. Finally, the social structures that cause cold as socially accepted behavior should be consciously perceived and reflected upon. For this it is necessary to give the children as much freedom as possible in which they have opportunities for experience. In addition, school education must be combined with the life of the children. to give the children as much freedom as possible in which they have opportunities for experience.

Child Guidance, Dynamic Psychology and the Psychopathologisation of Child-Rearing Culture (c. 1920-1940): A Transnational Perspective

Abstract/Notes: The historiography of child guidance has focused primarily on the United States, where it first developed before travelling across the English-speaking world. The rapid expansion of child guidance in the interwar years was enabled by private philanthropy, which provided fellowships to foreign professionals to study in the United States. This article focuses upon the transnational transfer of child guidance, the dynamic psychology on which it was based, and the accompanying psychopathologisation of child-rearing culture to a non-English speaking country, the Netherlands. First, it discusses the development of child guidance and the reception of dynamic psychology in the United States and Britain. Next, it analyses the transfer to the Netherlands. It turns out that the Dutch did not copy the American model, but adapted it to fit their conditions and created a more diverse child guidance landscape, in which educational psychology played a less important role than child psychiatry.

What's Going on with This Child? Child Study for the 21st Century

Abstract/Notes: Allison Jones and Jacqueline Cossentino have taken the term child study to describe the work they do with children experiencing challenges. Their approach to child study attempts to change the typical question of "What is wrong with this child?" to "What is going on with this child?" They have created a system by which they try to pinpoint what is going on with a child (the BASE System) and then create an action plan for working with that child. It is a collaborative effort on the part of the school community, including multiple teachers and the school's instructional leader. In this work with children experiencing challenges, organizing and recording the work and progress is crucial to understanding what is effective, what is not, and ultimately in determining what is best for each individual child.
