Abstract/Notes: [...]the first time I saw a wild animal in person was at a Ugandan zoo at the age of 12. The Baganda people (as well as the people of other African ethnic groups) attach great importance, pride, and respect to their king and kingdoms, as well as to regional leaders called chiefs. Invite individuals to your classroom to share cultural artifacts, languages, clothing, food, music, and anything else that will enrich children's understanding of the African continent and its people and expand their worldview Now, 8 years into my career as a Montessori teacher, I am lucky that I have the platform and the tools to help young children appreciate and celebrate cultural diversity. While it's true that the African continent is home to a number of major national parks, with some of the world's most fascinating animals, especially the "Big Five" (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo), reducing an entire continent to just animals is a dangerous distortion of perspective for curious young minds.

Abstract/Notes: When Maria Montessori addressed two wildly enthusiastic American audiences at Carnegie Hall in December 1913, she thrilled the parents in attendance, but sent a shock wave through the educational establishment. Instead of accommodating skeptics from the teacher-training institutions seated there that night, she appealed directly to parents who found in the Montessori message an antidote to the miasma in their children's schools. Subsequently, the educational establishment that found more to dislike than to admire in Montessori marshaled their considerable power to discourage any permanent American Montessori movement for years to come. This article explores the clash between Montessori and optimistic American families versus the American educational establishment of the time. For further historical perspective, the author offers an analysis of the growth of the kindergarten movement and the emergence of progressivism in education as an outgrowth of the American Progressive movement at the turn of the 20th century. Maria Montessori's presentations at Carnegie Hall occurred at the apex of these convulsive forces.
