Waldorf Education in Practice by Else GottgensOutskirts Press
Else Göttgens took-on her first class of children at the Zeist Steiner School (Netherlands) in 1941. For the next seventy years, her remarkable teaching career influenced countless lives in the Netherlands, the UK and much of the US, including Hawaii. Still today, she regularly visits schools from coast to coast, on both sides of the Atlantic.
Waldorf Education in Practice sums up her experience as a teacher of children as well as a teacher of teachers. Easy to read, matter-of-fact and practical, this book does not offer ready-made lessons, but rather, it guides teachers on how to create their own; how to be successful in the lower grades of a Waldorf classroom.
