The Uniqueness of Waldorf Education
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education was convinced that social problems can only be solved with the help of a pedagogy that educates the whole human being. An education that strives towards the truly human: respect of the other person's autonomy,loving interest in them, and honesty in our approach to them.
This book has three parts: Part I aims to help teachers and parents broaden and deepen their understanding of the growing child. Part II focuses on classroom activities unique to Waldorf education. Part III focuses on some self-transformative work necessary for Waldorf teachers and for every adult individual.
Book of the Week
Africa: A Teacher's Guide by Betty K. Staley
Africa, A Teacher’s Guide: Ethnography, Geography, History, Culture, Stories, and Art by Betty Staley, is a carefully, well-organized resource for teaching children and adolescents about African culture. This book is divided into geographical regions so each can be highlighted and contrasted. The songs, fairy tales, mythologies, biographies, art, and recipes are highlighted with practical activities for each grade including kindergarten. This is an invaluable book for teachers in elementary and high school as well as for home school parents. Teachers have created a full unit on Africa out of this extensive and well-researched book. Betty Staley brought the successful first edition titled Hear the Voice of the Griot! up-to-date and expanded it. Teachers have been waiting for this, and we are pleased to announce that it is now available on line and in our bookstore.
