Seller ID: 3825

A great reference book on how the teacher and the doctor can work together to foster good health from birth through the teen years. Contributions to this book from school physicians point in the direction already suggested by Rudolf Steiner. Modern research into salutogenesis and resilience has also provided validation and corroboration for these ideas. . . . Salutogenesis means 'inquiry into the origin of health.' This line of thinking represents a new paradigm, a new direction for research. [When referring to this item please quote our ID 3825] View more info

Illustrations Children of today are more sedentary than any previous generation. Traditional outdoor games - running and jumping, hopscotch, climbing trees, playing on a swing - are being abandoned in favour of television, computers and electronic games. As a result concern about rising levels of childhood obesity and inactivity is reaching unprecedented levels. Deprived of the crucial opportunities for exercising the body and the senses which prime the brain for learning in the early years, many children are, literally, unfit to learn.

In this hilarious and insightful story of one person's experience of getting to know Waldorf education, Margaret Gorman writes: Sixteen years ago I became a Waldorf school parent. At that time, I was an unlikely character for this role. A teacher who comes from a long line of educators, including both my parents, I had come of age in the 1960s. I believed education should be as painless as possible and, while being fun, should still be excellent. My educational philosophy vacillated between A. S. Neill's Summerhill and the works of Maria Montessori. One thing was clear to my husband and me... View more info
