<B>Active Arithmetic </B><I> Movement and Mathematics Teaching in the Lower Grades of a Waldorf School</I>, ANDERSEN, HENNING
2 Active Arithmetic Movement and Mathematics Teaching in the Lower Grades of a Waldorf School
ANDERSEN, HENNING
1936367505 / 9781936367504 
5.5 x 7.5 inches, illustrated.
Unavailable till end of 2017
Is it possible to teach arithmetic in the first years of schooling in such a way that the majority of pupils do not experience the lesson as a strain? Are there ways of practicing arithmetic that do not adversely affect the child’s zest for life?

Active Arithmetic! Describes the very special way in which arithmetic is taught in a Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf school. Rather than attempting to give a complete account of this teaching method, the book concentrates upon the many different aspects of movement and drawing exercises. These exercises satisfy both the children’s great need for physical activity and their innate curiosity about the world of numbers.

The book is directed not only to teachers of arithmetic in the younger classes, but also to people who work with the same age group outside of school using games and movement. Parents with children requiring special support at home and teachers working with children with special needs will find in the book a wealthy source of helpful ideas.

Written by an experienced Waldorf teacher in Denmark, Active Arithmetic tells how to make math come alive through movement, games, and rhythm in the early grades. Making math a meaningful and memorable event in a young child's life is all important. Active Arithmetic will help you to do it! All recent brain development illustrates that movement is the key to a rich and fully developed skill set in children. Music and rhythm have been shown to light up the whole brain and to help children understand and apply complex math concepts. The many ideas, imaginative games and activities described by this experienced Waldorf teacher hold the key to "Aha!" moments for comprehending important math ideas.

9 Agriculture An Introductory Reader
STEINER, RUDOLF, VON ARNIM, C.
1855841134 / 9781855841130 2003 Paperback 
Rudolf Steiner, the often undervalued, multifaceted genius of modern times, contributed much to the regeneration of culture. In addition to his philosophical teachings, he provided ideas for the development of many practical activities including education -- both general and special -- agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, religion, and the arts. Today there are thousands of schools, clinics, farms, and many other organizations based on his ideas.Steiner's original contribution to human knowledge was based on his ability to conduct spiritual research, the investigation of metaphysical dimensions of existence. With his scientific and philosophical training, he brought a new systematic discipline to the field, allowing for conscious methods and comprehensive results. A natural seer from childhood, he cultivated his spiritual vision to a high degree, enabling him to speak with authority on previously veiled mysteries of life.Topics include: the evolving human being; cosmos as the source of life; plants and the living earth; farms and the realms of nature; bringing the chemical elements to life; soil and the world of spirit; supporting and regulating life processes; spirits of the elements; nutrition and vitality; responsibility for the future.

How can we understand the non-denominational nature of the Waldorf school even as we address the central role of the Christ impulse in the Waldorf school? This collection of lectures from the Colloquium held in Spring Valley, NY, January 2005, provides a thoughtful basis for a discussion of this challenging aspect of Waldorf education.

Presenters included: Douglas Gerwin, Douglas Sloan, Betty Staley, Roberto Trostli, and Dorit Winter.

The authors seek to address why “this is not a call to Christian worship nor is it an appeal to any sectarian Christian doctrine.”

<B>Anthroposophy </B><I> A Concise Introduction to Rudolf Steiner's Spiritual Philosophy</I>, OORT, HENK VAN
19 Anthroposophy A Concise Introduction to Rudolf Steiner's Spiritual Philosophy
OORT, HENK VAN
1902636929 / 9781902636924 2008 Paperback 
People today recognise Rudolf Steiner's work largely because of initiatives such as the worldwide Waldorf school movement, biodynamic agriculture, and anthroposophic medicine. Nevertheless, the comprehensive spiritual philosophy behind these movements is not so well known. In this concise presentation, based on years of teaching introductory courses on the subject, van Oort presents an overview of key aspects of Steiner's thought. He deals with concepts such as body, soul, and spirit; the relationship between humankind and the animal kingdom; and the evolution of consciousness, a topic that opens panoramic vistas of human development in the form of successive cultural periods extending over thousands of years.

Henk van Oort, born in 1943, trained as a primary teacher before earning a Masters degree in English at the Amsterdam University. He has taught for forty years in primary and secondary education, including class teaching in a Waldorf school, teaching English, and leading educational courses and seminars for teachers and parents. His interest in literature and poetry has led to his appearance at storytelling and poetry seminars, and his introductory courses to Anthroposophy have been highly successful. Based in Bergen N.H. in the Netherlands, Henk van Oort is married and the father of three.

<B>Anthroposophy A-Z </B><I> A Glossary of Terms Relating to Rudolf Steiner's Spiritual Philosophy</I>, OORT, HENK VAN
20 Anthroposophy A-Z A Glossary of Terms Relating to Rudolf Steiner's Spiritual Philosophy
OORT, HENK VAN
1855842645 / 9781855842649 2011 Paperback 
Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual philosophy is the inspiration for many successful initiatives in the world today, from the international Steiner Waldorf school movement to biodynamic agriculture and its increasingly popular produce. Steiner developed his philosophy in dozens of books and many thousands of lectures. His teaching contains dozens of new concepts and ideas, and as a result he had often to create his own vocabulary. In this practical volume - a companion to his Anthroposophy, A Concise Introduction - Henk van Oort gives concise definitions of many terms and concepts in Steiner’s worldview, from the most commonplace to the more obscure.

Anthroposophy A-Z can be used as a reference guide, but also as a gateway into Rudolf Steiner’s manifold world of spiritual ideas and concepts. Anthroposophy can be seen to be a new language - a language that can lead to the world of the spirit. It was with this awareness that Henk van Oort took the initiative to write this glossary. Ultimately, he has written the sort of inspiring handbook that he wished had existed when he first became acquainted with anthroposophy over 40 years ago.

HENK VAN OORT, born in 1943, trained as a primary teacher before taking a Masters degree in English at the Amsterdam University. He has taught for 40 years in primary and secondary education, including class teaching in a Steiner school, teaching English, and running educational courses and seminars for teachers and parents. His interest in literature and poetry has led to his appearance at storytelling and poetry seminars, and his introductory courses to anthroposophy have proved to be highly successful. Based in Bergen N.H. in the Netherlands, Henk van Oort is married and the father of three grown-up children. He is the author of Anthroposophy, A Concise Introduction.
