Science and Math – Observing Our World Leads To Investigations in the Realm of Theoretical Ideas

From Chicago Waldorf School: In Waldorf education students use investigation and observation to inspect how the world works.

Why singing improves well-being

By Kamala Katbamna I’m sometimes asked why we use singing in our sessions. I’m not surprised – and not only because singing is, ahem, a touch unusual in leadership development. Thing is, however natural it might be, singing comes with baggage. It’s always a loaded concept, whether that’s with feelings of joy or outright fear, or something in between. And actually, in our work, all of that is useful. That element of fear and exposure can help you notice how you respond to risk and uncertainty. And do so in a way that’s not only immediate, but that is all-encompassing: physically, intellectually […]

In an age of robots, schools are teaching our children to be redundant

A regime of cramming and testing is crushing young people’s instinct to learn and destroying their future By George Monbiot, The Guardian, February 15, 2017 In the future, if you want a job, you must be as unlike a machine as possible: creative, critical and socially skilled. So why are children being taught to behave like machines? Children learn best when teaching aligns with their natural exuberance, energy and curiosity. So why are they dragooned into rows and made to sit still while they are stuffed with facts? We succeed in adulthood through collaboration. So why is collaboration in tests […]

By Kate Magee at When Gillian Lynne was eight years old, her school said she might have a learning disorder because she would not sit still. Her mother took her to see a specialist. During the meeting, the specialist asked to speak to her mother privately, and left Lynne alone in his office with the radio on.

Take her to a dance school.” She did and Lynne […]

Educating The Whole Child in Waldorf Schools

From Spring Garden Waldorf School, January 8, 2017 Waldorf Educators say they focus on “educating the whole child.” They also say the curriculum engages the student’s “head, heart and hands,” and uses “multi-disciplinary” methods of teaching. This sounds great, of course, but what does this really mean? Waldorf Education’s founder, Austrian scientist and philosopher, Rudolf Steiner, had very forward thinking ideals in regards to educating children in the late 19th century. For Steiner, “educating the whole child,” meant appealing to student’s internal motivation, educating them socially and morally as well as academically, and using art, nature and movement to bring both inspiration […]

THE TEACHING OF SCIENCE: Stimulation of the Senses, Astute Observation, Rigorous Training in Thinking, Phenomenological Thinking

David Mitchell Waldorf education works with the develop mental stages of growth in children. The harmonious unfolding of the personality depends on the healthy maturation of each developmental stage, and each progression builds upon the one before it. Strengthening a child’s later cognition in science begins with the building of a strong foundation in the early years, initially by parents and family and later by teachers. Preschool children are informed about the world through their bodily or sense impressions. The wonder in the world passes directly into their physical, sensory organization through every experience they encounter. Impressions are stored as […]
