On Reading and Writing, by Karl KonigCamphill Books UK
In these meditations on hand and eye, attention and uprightness, light and sound, death and resurrection, Karl Konig attempts to reveal the phenomena out of which writing and reading manifest-or fail to develop. An educational approach to the teaching of writing and reading arises from observation of these phenomena. Pressures on modern children to achieve learning outcomes in literacy are so great that soul development can be endangered. Where teachers have traversed and studied the terrain Karl Konig explores here, the children in their care can be nourished and learn in broader pastures.
