A Historical Look at Montessori's Erdkinder.
Barker, Devan
NAMTA Journal, v26 n3 p283-315 Sum 2001
Describes the German land schools, focusing on the Country Home School founded in 1898 and other early rural German educational experiments as a backdrop for an examination of Montessori's formulation of Erdkinder. Recommends a systematic historical study of ideas and writing surrounding the genesis of Erdkinder so that contemporary implementers of Erdkinder have a broader context for their work. (Author/KB)
