Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since their inception over 80 years ago, Waldorf Schools have offered a much-needed model for educational reform. Understanding Waldorf Education: Teaching from the Inside Out, provides a compelling, clearly written picture of the key components of a Waldorf Education. Through the insights and reflections of one of America's most experienced Waldorf class teachers, we are given a clear, common sense understanding of this uncommon education.

Synopsis:

Written by a teacher with more than 25 years of experience, this book offers a jargon-free view of Waldorf schools with their philosophy of the importance of a three-dimensional education. Through learning experiences that involve all of the senses, children use a variety of intelligences to develop thought, feeling, and intentional, purposeful activity. Whether youre a Waldorf parent or teacher, or you just want to learn more about these innovative educational concepts, this book contains important ideas on learning that you can apply today.
