When a school community loses a child, parent, or teacher, the experience can be devastating to the whole community. Few things in life can prepare anyone for such a tragedy. Teachers and parents often struggle with how to speak with the children and may have important questions, such as: What is the best way to work with grief? What happens after death? How can we stay connected? Working through shock, grief, and even depression is a necessary step in life following a death in one's community.

"To achieve great things two things are needed; a plan and not quite enough time." - Leonard Bernstein "Leaders must encourage their organizations to dance to forms of music yet to be heard." - Warren G. Bennis "Leaders are needed to articulate a vision and help an organization galvanize the resources to create a preferred future, one that both inspires and motivates. Leaders bring the right people together to generate new resources, human and financial. New opportunities can then open up." (from the book) A leader is like an orchestra conduc... View more info

Parables

Price: $22.00

Publisher: SteinerBooks:

Seller ID: 15176

ISBN: 1621482308


“One could say that a parable contains a larger lesson in a bite-sized portion. Using other words, a parable is a simple short story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson.... The word parable can be traced back to Middle English and Old French origins as parabole and to the ecclesiastical Latin sense of parabola, meaning “discourse, allegory, or comparison.”... Parables use comparison, allegory, imagery, analogy, or a short story to convey a larger meaning.” (from the book) Torin Finser writes that parables involve “looking down” (or out) t...

Education for Nonviolence The Waldorf Way

Price: $33.00

Publisher: SteinerBooks:

Seller ID: 14994

ISBN: 1621481980


Education for Nonviolence describes how we can actually do something about our increasingly violent world. Few in the media draw a clear connection between the all-too-frequent tragedies we hear and read about in the news each day and the way as parents and teachers we raise and educate our children. Abstract concepts, rote learning, and standardized tests cannot develop the emotional and social intelligence our children need later in life to build relationships, contribute to society, and succeed in the workplace. The author describes how Waldorf independent and charter schools provide much-n... View more info

ISBN: 1621481301


"First, one might ask: Why not just read the first three books? After all, Rudolf Steiner wrote them in such a way that the very act of reading them can awaken new faculties. Who could ever duplicate that? It might even seem presumptuous to select passages from books that were constructed by an initiate. To those who have these and other objections, I have the following response: My hope is that the pages in this book serve as an invitation, so that those who work with this material will then be motivated to go to the original texts and work with them more intensively." —Torin Fi...

Seller ID: 13160

ISBN: 1621480631


What does a healthy, successful school look like? Is it all about measurable outcomes, test scores, and pass/fail grades set by the government? Can learning be quantified in short-term measurements or does real learning take years to manifest in a career or biography? All seem to agree that a healthy school is also a community and that community depends on the quality of relationships—chiefly the relationships among students, teachers, and parents. This book features a comprehensive examination of the parent–teacher relationship in all its dimensions, from parent evenings ... View more info

Finding Your Self: Exercises and Suggestions to Support the Inner Life of the Teacher Society demands so much of our teachers today. Schools are expected to deal with a host of social needs, often without adequate funding and support. Many politicians think the solution is to raise standards through additional testing, common core curriculum, and increased scrutiny of teacher performance. The external pressures on teachers and schools are increasing each year, yet few ask the teachers, “What do you need?” Many studies have shown that the single most important fac... View more info

In recent years a chasm has opened between many of our leaders and those who work for them.We have witnessed the sacrifices of airline workers and the unconscionable compensation of top executives, the ideals of Olympic Games and the conduct of certain committee members, the sacrament of religion and the priests who abused the sanctity of the human body, the needed services of United Way and their extravagant executive "perks," and the hopes of fairness through democracy versus the presidential election of 2000.The values of hard work, inalienable rights, fairness and public service he...

illustrations Torin Finser takes on some of our contemporary challenges and proposes new solutions. Rather than simply "kicking the can down the road," as often happens with issues such as sovereign debts, Middle East conflicts, and environmental issues, Finser calls for individual initiative. Drawing on a variety of rich cultural and spiritual traditions, he makes the case for social change that begins within. To do so, one must first access resources that support initiative and innovation. Key questions discussed in this book include: * How is it possible to live a spi... View more info
