COURSE BACKGROUND AND COURSE OVERVIEW:
The first women doctor of Italia, pedagogic doctor, and anthropology professor Maria Montessori(1870-1952) created a pedagogy that will contribute to the individual improvement of every child.
-Field of interests
-The speed of individual learning
In addition, she had cleared out that the mental disorder is mostly a pedagogic problem. So, she created her own methods by developing the former methods. She achieved greater successes with the groups that she taught them on their own.
In 06.01.1907, she founded the first children house. In this house, it had been researched that what are the things that children are interested in. These are the things that they do not like:
-The education processes that are programmed by the adults for them
-Sugars and cookies
-The teacher tables
In this house, it had been cleared out that they like these:
-The free choice
-Controlling their own faults
-Their own creating and shaping of the social relationships
-Their environments’ being clean and ordered
-The discipline that they will create with the free activities
-The writing and reading without memorizing.
These are stands for an important place for the individual improvements of children. The methods used in the educational process are not determinant factors, the actual factors are the determinant ones. In this educational program, these are important thoughts:
-The child is special and he is just one, and he is specific.
-He absorbs the material world, and he builds his own character.
-With these buildings, they are unaware of their becoming architects.
So, adults should not stop their works of building by interferences. For this education, preparing an environment is important. These environments should be prepared related to children’s fields of interests and skills. So, materials, time and place for children should not be restricted. In addition, they should have the opportunities to repeat whenever they want.
Physical and mental hygiene for children is so important at this point, and supports of the adults for children take an important role in their lives at these ages. With the progresses of this education module, a new system has existed that is created and developed by its own.
The objectives of the course:
-Excluding the fears of being tested and examination of the children
-Growing up more courageous individuals
-Excluding the normal children’s prejudices to disabled ones
-Student’s being followed and analyzed even after their Montessori education.
-Combining and including them into a free and environment education.
-To help their starting period to the adulthood ages without the fears of being tested
CONTENT AND METHODOLOGY:
The main point in Montessori Education is clear: “Children’s ability to do things on their own.” So, the adults should catch this point when their children are growing up. In this education, it is expected that teachers should understand the idea that children have the idea “Help me for my achieving on my own.” For this reason, in this education module, it is not important to children’s doing something, it is important that they should do their own. So, the methodology of education should step with this idea, first.
Then, teachers should not restrict them. Every child wants to learn something; however, this should not be with forcing them. So, they should create on their environment, first. Then, they should have their own responsibility feelings to work on something. By the way, while they are studying in these schools, they should not be exposed to the fears of being tested and examined. So, they should feel free while they are doing their duties.
