Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori lectured in Italian during the first International Montessori Course in 1939 at Madras, India. These 75 lectures were translated into English by her son Mario, as she spoke. And were taken down near verbatim in short hand, transcribed and set into galleys overnight. One such set of proofs forms the original manuscript for this book. For the most part, each chapter in this book encompasses a single lecture. The lectures are left in the same order as they were given, swinging between psychology and the use of the materials. India’s diversity of language, social custom and religious practice enriched her research. During this time, Dr. Montessori worked with children in Madras and put into practice her theories of adapting the environment, furniture and the Practical Life materials to local conditions. In these lectures, Maria Montessori speaks with the mature wisdom of a lifetime spent studying, not just early childhood, but human development as a whole and gives a complete, wonderful and colorful overview of her pedagogy and philosophy.

Abstract/Notes: En los Estados Unidos se tiene un porcentaje de 3% a 7% casos de niños con Trastorno por Déficit de Atención (TDA) esto da un parámetro de cómo se está diagnosticando este problema en diferentes instituciones educativas del exterior del país. Hablando específicamente de Bolivia, se tiene una taza de 3% de casos de niños con TDA, lo que también da un parámetro que ya existen casos de niños con este problema diagnosticados. La Ley Avelino Siñani – Elizardo Pérez, en el Artículo 42 señala que debe haber una educación de inclusión, que cree políticas educativas para niños con TDA y otros problemas de aprendizaje que ayuda a mejorar la calidad de aprendizaje y educación de estos infantes. Sin embargo, hasta la fecha, no se puede ver estas políticas en los establecimientos educativos del país. Pese a esta falencia, en la actualidad se tienen muchos métodos que se pueden utilizar para ayudar a que los niños con TDA y otros problemas de aprendizaje puedan mejorar su nivel de aprendizaje. En este sentido, el Método Montessori es bastante recomendable para tratar este problema, que se puede encontrar con más frecuencia en las aulas de Bolivia, el cual, al tener una filosofía basada en la libertad de aprendizaje y que el niño aprenda haciendo, se puede llegar a aprendizajes muy significativos con ellos, además que no solamente fija conocimientos sino que también provee al niño de paciencia, razonamiento y orden, lo cual coadyuva al infante cuando se debe enfrentar a nuevos conocimientos que le son impartidos de forma más abstracta y convencional. De esta manera, con la presente investigación se pudo verificar el problema de nivel de atención en los niños y niñas de primer año en familia comunitaria del Jardín Infantil “Acuarela” y al aplicar el Apparatus del Método Montessori, lo que dio resultados favorables, ya que los niños y niñas elevaron su tiempo de atención y concentración con el mismo.

The Contribution of the Montessori Approach to Multisensory Approaches to Early Learning Disabilities

Available from: University of Witwatersrand - Institutional Repository

Abstract/Notes: Learning disabilities have become of increasing concern for educators. More and more children are having difficulty learning to read and write. This dissertation investigates what constitutes a learning disability, its etiology and whether or not it is possible to identify these disabilities in early childhood. The investigation further aims to discover if these learning disabilities are comprised of sub-disabilities and if these can be identified as such. To this end the research aims to determine the most appropriate remedial intervention strategies used for learning disabilities. Multisensory intervention is therefore explored. On the basis of this the Montessori Method is examined to ascertain whether or not the method can contribute to multisensory intervention at the preschool level. It is argued that the Montessori Method is admirably suited to making such a contribution. Further empirical research for these claims is indicated.

Abstract/Notes: V magistrski nalogi smo združili področji angleškega jezika in predšolske vzgoje. Osredotočili smo se na sodobne pristope poučevanja tujega jezika v vrtcu Montessori ter želeli ugotoviti, kako predšolski otroci usvajajo tuj jezik. V teoretičnem delu smo pregledali teorijo pedagogike Montessori in značilnosti učenja ter poučevanja tujega jezika v predšolskem obdobju. Empirični del smo zastavili tako, da je združil obe področji. V Hiši otrok Antonina v Biljah pri Novi Gorici smo s pomočjo opazovalnega lista pridobili potrebne informacije, s katerimi smo odgovorili na že prej zastavljena raziskovalna vprašanja ter potrdili oziroma zavrnili zastavljene hipoteze. Pri opazovanju smo se osredotočili na strategije poučevanja angleškega jezika, metode dela, tematike učnih ur, raznolikost dejavnosti, uporabljene materiale, aktivnost otrok, uporabo angleškega jezika, odziv vzgojitelja na napake otrok in na napredek otrok ob večkratni ponovitvi individualnih in skupinskih dejavnosti. Ker sta vzgojiteljici med učenjem angleščine nenehno uporabljali angleški jezik, so se otroci poleg besedišča učili tudi melodijo in ritem jezika, kar jim bo pomagalo pri nadaljnjem učenju angleščine. Koncept Montessori poskuša otroke izoblikovati tako, da bodo v nadaljnjem življenju samostojni, odgovorni in potrpežljivi. Otroci se preko različnih pravil in dejavnosti tega učijo. [In this Master's thesis we combined English language and preschool education. We focused on modern ways of teaching and learning a foreign language in Montessori kindergarten. In theoretical part we took a look at theory of Montessori pedagogy and theory of learning a foreign language in kindergarten. In empirical part we combined these two together. In Hiša otrok Antonina in Bilje near Nova Gorica we organised an observation of a group of children from the second age group in kindergarten. In our observations we used observation sheets. With those, we obtained the information we were interested in. During our ten observations we focused on seventeen points of our observation sheet. The first part contained basic information like the name of the observer, the name of the teacher, number of children, age group, theme and lesson aims, goals of the activities, methods used, didactic materials, the language of instructions, comprehension of instructions, teacher's reaction to children's mistakes, teacher's usage of English language, whether the children waited for a specific material or they focused their attention on something else, whether children were active during different tasks, whether children returned to the same material and an observation of individual's and group's multiple usage of the same material.]
