Sole Responsibility How Teachers, Parents and Pupils Might Run a Waldorf School, A New Approach

By: WEMBER, VALENTIN

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Tubingen, Germany, Stratosverlag:

Seller ID: 14917

ISBN: 3943731200


This book takes a critical look at how Waldorf Schools are run and reveals the weaknesses: not enough responsibility, too much untapped potential, too ineffective. But the book also contains success stories, using a new approach. It points the way to genuine responsibility and high effectivity, it tells how parents and pupils can have real participation in running the school and it develops a clear picture of what “running a school” means, as opposed to simple “administration.” The Author Valentin Wember studied philosophy, literature, music and science of ...

This new bestseller by Valentin Wember shows the original mission of Waldorf education:  It is meant to introduce a Copernican turning-point in education.  It was to be a pioneering project for centuries to come. Astoundingly, “The Five Dimensions of Waldorf Education” is the first account of Waldorf education which portrays all its aspects and not just excerpts. Above all, it lays bare Waldorf education’s ‘DNA’, which is needed for the further development of Waldorf schools in the future. Even experienced teachers giv... View more info

Price: $65.00

Publisher: United Kingdom, Rudolf Steiner Press: 2013

Seller ID: 12772

ISBN: 185584379X


Olive Whicher's groundbreaking book presents an accessible - non-mathematician's - approach to projective geometry. Profusely illustrated, and written with fire and intuitive genius, this work will be of interest to anyone wishing to cultivate the power of inner visualization in a realm of structural beauty. Whicher explores the concepts of polarity and movement in modern projective geometry as a discipline of thought that transcends the limited and rigid space and forms of Euclid, and the corresponding material forces conceived in classical mechanics. Rudolf Steiner underlined the importance... View more info

To be a teacher and teaching children and youngsters is still a wonderful profession: it never gets dull or boring. But it is also a professional life under pressure. Complex demands, a high profile in professionalism, delivering sound results, yet also being attentive to the individual needs and development of the students and helping parents to understand their own child. All this demands from the teacher a multitasking talent. The teacher is constantly serving others, without time for him or herself. Working in this profession you can easily loose your balance, the balance between inner nee... View more info

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 that the weekly pedagogical meetings in Waldorf schools should support teachers’ continually developing insight into t... View more info

Norse Stories and their Significance, The

By: WILKINSON ROY

Price: $30.00

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner College Press:

Seller ID: 10344

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 adverse powers, the fading of the old world conception and the birth of the ego which leads to new powers of perception.

Teaching Mathematics

By: WILKINSON ROY

Price: $23.00

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 found everywhere, sometimes apparent, sometimes less apparent; but, like all nature, it will reveal itself to the enquiring min... View more info

Seller ID: 12084


Language has become so commonplace that we think very little about it, but, like so much of the world that we take for granted, a little reflection may lead us to ponder on its mysteries. Somewhere, at some time, it has its origins. It has gone through stages of development. It has various manifestations-the spoken word and the written script. It is a means of communication and dissemination of knowledge; it is also a medium of artistic expression. What is the place of grammar? Why are there so many different languages? In this booklet we will attempt to deal with these more philosoph... View more info

ISBN: 1869890515


Rudolf Steiner (1863-1925) was an inspiring teacher who founded an educational movement. He was a pioneer of a comprehensive, co-educational form of education which assisted the whole development of children from kindergarten through to the end of high school. He encouraged teachers to understand the spiritual, psychological and physical dimensions of child development. Teachers, children and parents are encouraged to create "free schools" where education for both freedom and responsibility is encouraged. Roy Wilkinson offers this compendium of Rudolf Steiner on education as a guide. I... View more info
