Schools of To-morrow and The Schools of Utopia argue that education and learning are social and interactive processes, and thus the school itself is a social institution through which social reform can and should take place. Students should thrive in an environment where they are allowed to experience and interact with the curriculum, and all students should have the opportunity to take part in their own learning.

The Montessori Method represents an explicit idealism and turn away from war and violence toward peace and reconstruction. It is built on coherent visions of how to improve human society by helping children realize their full potential as intelligent, creative, whole persons. In the Montessori Method, children are viewed as active authors of their own development, strongly influenced by natural, dynamic, self-righting forces within themselves, opening the way toward growth and learning. Teachers depend for their work with children on carefully prepared, aesthetically pleasing environments that serve as a pedagogical tool and provide strong messages about the curriculum and about respect for children. Partnering with parents is highly valued in the Montessori Method, and children are evaluated by means other than traditional tests and grades.

A MONTESSORI MOTHER BY DOROTHY CANFIELD FISHER (Author of "The Squirrel-Cage") -ILLUSTRATED Looking back at the content of Montessori's first work "The discovery of the child", we can see in "A Montessori Mother" a series of common themes that Fisher takes up from the Italian pedagogist. Fisher appreciates the method completely adhering to it and writes his book presenting the key points of this new way of doing education, which she will also export in family life, wanting to be a Montessori mother herself. Through a comparative analysis of "A Montessori mother" with "The child in the family" of Maria Montessori, we can see points of commonality and difference. Both authors make an invitation to the adults, and in particular to the parents, to become aware of the role played by the child. No longer considering himself or herself as the builder of the child's psychic life, the adult must simply be his guardian, and guide the child towards autonomous self-building. Although Montessori declared that she was familiar with Fisher's study, she never admitted this sort of debt, and yet Fisher's contribution to Montessori's family pedagogy is evident.

Excerpt: ... to build; but when it does not elaborate from reality and truth, instead of raising a divine structure it forms incrustations which compress the intelligence and prevent the light from penetrating thereto. How much time and strength man has lost and is losing by this error! Just as vice, which is an exercise of function without purpose, wastes the body until it becomes diseased, so imagination unsustained by truth consumes the intelligence until it assumes characteristics akin to the mental characteristics of the insane. Fable and religion.-- I have frequently heard it said that the education of the imagination on a basis of fancy prepares the soul of the child for religious education; and that an education based on "reality," as in this method we would adopt, is too arid, and tends to dry up the founts of spiritual life. Such reasoning, however, will not be accepted by religious persons. They know well that faith and fable are " as the poles apart," since fable is in itself a thing without faith, and faith is the very sentiment of truth, which should accompany man even unto death. Religion is not a product of fantastic imagination, it is the greatest of realities, the one truth to the religious man. It is the fount and basis of his life. The man without religion is not, certainly, a person without imagination, but rather one who lacks internal equilibrium; compared with the religious man he is less calm, less strong in adversity; not only this, but he is more unsettled in his own ideas. He is weaker and more unhappy; and it is in vain that he catches at imagination to create a world for himself outside reality. Something within him cries aloud in the words of David: "My soul is athirst for God." And if he hopes to reach the goal of his...

Understanding the Montessori Approach is a much-needed source of information for those wishing to extend and consolidate their understanding of the Montessori Approach and how it is used in the teaching and learning of young children. The book will enable the reader to analyse the essential elements of this Approach to early childhood and and its relationship to quality early years practice. This second edition has been fully updated to reflect changes in the Early Years Foundation Stage and includes a fresh examination of the relationship between technology and the Montessori approach, as well as a brand new chapter, Learning in Montessori Settings. Exploring all areas of the curriculum including the organisation of Montessori schools, the environment, learning and teaching and the outcomes for children, this book: examines the historical context of the Montessori approach and its relevance to modern-day education; explores Montessori's views of child development and the role of the learning environment in a child’s educational development; details the organisation of Montessori schools worldwide and the structure of a typical day in a Montessori setting; highlights the principles of Montessori pedagogy, including the tools and strategies employed by its practitioners; considers how and what children learn in a Montessori setting and the links with EYFS 2017; includes new benefits and challenges of the Montessori approach to children's lives. Understanding the Montessori Approach provides an accessible overview of this major pedagogical influence on early years practice, supported by case studies, examples, summaries and reflective practice questions. This new edition not only highlights the core ideas that practitioners should consider when reviewing and reflecting on their own practice, but accomodates revisions to educational curriculum and policy in order to serve as an invaluable resource for students and practitioners alike.

Author: Dorothy Canfield
Dorothy Canfield Fisher (1879-1958) who sometimes wrote under the pseudonym Stanley Cranshaw was an educational reformer, social activist, and best-selling American author in the early decades of the twentieth century. Dorothy Canfield brought the Montessori method of child rearing to the United States, presided over the country's first adult education program, and shaped literary tastes by serving as a member of the Book-of-the-Month Club selection committee from 1925 to 1951. Her best-known work today is probably Understood Betsy (1917), a children's book about a little orphaned girl who is sent to live with her cousins in Vermont. Though the book can be read purely for pleasure, it also describes a schoolhouse which is run much in the style of the Montessori method, for which Canfield was one of the first and most vocal advocates. In 1899 Dorothy Canfield received a B. A. from Ohio State University. Canfield went on to study Romance languages at Columbia University, and in 1904 was one of the few women of her generation to receive a doctoral degree. Amongst her other works are: The Bent Twig (1915), Hillsboro People (1915), and The Brimming Cup (1921).
