Top Snippets from The History Chicks
Snippet of Maria Montessori As the world evolves to necessitate new skills and ways of thinking, students cautiously weigh the value given to the degree against its real-world applicability. In Maria Montessori's time, Rome was barely "burdened" by the woman's aspiring intellect, and therefore she weighed the patricentric education system she cleverly entered against the cultural adequateness of the (masculine) title "Dottore." In this experience, she saw what in youth conditions this conception, and founded an educative method that allowed students to pursue what they subjectively valued, as opposed to what they were told to value. In this snippet, you'll learn about some of the key aspects of the Montessori method, as well as some info on her extremely interesting life and work, which you can find more of on The History Chicks Station. As a doctor, she often cared for patients to the degree of a personal aid or mother, a practice that allowed the notion, "women's work is human work" to illustrate what today are forms and fields of education - criticized as valueless - that only the courage to value for oneself will ever legitimize. Indeed, it is easy to see how her care for a patient's physical wellbeing crossed over into care for the student's mental.
Snippet of The History Chicks: The Early Life of The Creator of Wonder Woman Listen now to snippet “The Early Life of The Creator of Wonder Woman” from The History Chicks. How William Moulton Marston attended Harvard and met his wife.
Snippet of The History Chicks: Helen Keller (2) Another hugely important part of Anne Sullivan's genius, that has to be emphasized, was her adaptive teaching abilities, which were facilitated by powerful observation skills (maybe due in part to her lack of eyesight, herself). Often, Sullivan went against, or simply failed to address, the lessons the Perkins Institute suggested she teach Keller. For instance, noticing that her family talked to a baby in complete sentences, she started speaking to her pupil similarly, correctly believing she'd pick up the cadences and constructions of language naturally. She was also keen enough to prevent her pupil from being be turned "into a prodigy" if allowed to be poked and prodded, dissected, and narrativized the way Laura Brigman was, fifty years earlier.
Snippet of The History Chicks: Helen Keller The History Chicks give us another super entertaining and informative episode, here documenting the life of Helen Keller, from her early upbringing to her lifelong companionship with Anne Sullivan, to her work as an activist and reformer. This snippet gives us a taste of how Sullivan first approached her new pupil, which included intensive repetition to break uncontrolled behavior patterns.
