Description:     

This book describes the teaching methods and approach of Waldorf Education from Kindergarten to Class 12.

It also describes the vertical development of each subject throughout the curriculum, as well as giving an overview of the work in each class. The book also contains descriptions of typical non-classroom activities such as work experience, projects and excursions. There are sections on quality development, pupil and teacher assessment, school management and early years.

This curriculum offers various possible approaches to each stage of development by showing a range of possible teaching contents. It is therefore inclusive rather than prescriptive.

As the most comprehensive reference book on the Waldorf Curriculum to date, this book should interest teachers, parents and students but will also be of use to education officials and academics.

Here is a comprehensive overview of what Waldorf schools teach and why. In addition to describing the substance and methods of the Waldorf curriculum, the book also provides a clear overview of the ideas behind Rudolf Steiner's educational approach.

This handbook is indispensable for all Waldorf schools and teachers.

"…a gift for the Waldorf movement. It is the first version of the modern Waldorf curriculum that can be presented in non-Waldorf circles. It is written in best English scientific style, lively and accessible, non dogmatic and open for productive innovation"                                           – Johannes Kiersch in Erziehungskunst
