      • Classe maternelle, Gennevilliers


        from Céline Alvarez Added 53.7K 12 0

        Voici une courte présentation de la classe maternelle expérimentale de Gennevilliers ouverte de septembre 2011 à septembre 2014 au sein d'une classe maternelle publique, en Zone d’Education Prioritaire et Plan Violence. La classe comptait 25 enfants chaque année en moyenne dont 27 la deuxième année : 5 petits – 9 moyens – 13 grands. Pour plus d'informations concernant les effectifs et les répartitions par niveau chaque année, ainsi que le nombre de non-francophones, voir ici : http://bit.ly/1beTr6L Trois grands médecins – Jean Itard, Edouard Séguin puis Maria Montessori – ont, l’un après l’autre, posé les jalons successifs d’une recherche pédagogique scientifique, basée non pas sur des valeurs ou des idées, mais sur les grandes lois d’apprentissage et d’épanouissement humain. Pendant trois années scolaires (2011-14), j'ai développé cette proposition en m'engageant sur la voie ouverte par ces trois médecins et en l'étayant grâce aux apports des sciences cognitives et de la linguistique française (pour l’apprentissage de la lecture). Je poursuis maintenant ce travail hors Education nationale.
