Seller ID: 13861

ISBN: 3723515274


It may be a truism to say that every teacher should make efforts to understand his pupils. Our real understanding, after all, can be a sure foundation and support for children’s whole development; and without this our lessons will be a random undertaking that connects with our pupils, at best, in a superficial way only. A skilled teacher seeks to understand his pupils so that he can raise learning beyond mere compulsion or drill. It was Rudolf Steiner’s ideal... View more info

Teaching Mathematics

By: WILKINSON ROY

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner College Press:

Seller ID: 10246

ISBN: 0945803842


Mathematics, in the context of the classroom, often seems to be a trivial affair of counting and measuring, but in itself it has wide-ranging implications. The teacher who dwells a little on these will be in a position to convey the material to his or her pupils in a much more extensive and interesting way than one who takes a more superficial attitude. Mathematics, the science of space and number, is something universal and all-embracing. Its manifestations are to be fo... View more info

ISBN: 0945803435


At first sight the Norse stories appear to be a weird and wonderful collection of tales, illogical in sequence and with no coherent theme. . . . However that may be, there is in the Norse stories a great depth of knowledge and, fragmentary as they are, they are probably relics of old Mystery wisdom. They present a picture of evolution, of the creation and development of humankind and its connection with higher beings; they show the human being’s struggle with adver... View more info

Of all subjects, geography perhaps lends itself best to awakening a feeling of social responsibility. By social responsibility, we mean the awareness of, and consideration for, other people and other modes of life. The earth is the living space and the workplace of all human beings. . . . Since we have a world economy, the use of the world's resources is everybody's business. Is it a pleasant thought that one in every three of the world's population is undernourished? Th...

ISBN: 0945803524


What we call temperaments today were known in Greek times as the four humours, and medical science considered them of great importance. Knowledge of them has fallen into the background until Rudolf Steiner called attention to their importance in education. Temperament has nothing to do with character or morals but is in itself a basic quality—a substance as it were, though not material. A person will do things or react in a certain way according to his temperament ... View more info
