Seller ID: 1117

ISBN: 0880104910


This experienced Waldorf teacher allows us to enter his classroom and gain insights that serve as valuable guides for both parents and educators. Aeppli also presents a challenge to teachers: penetrate the subject, grasp its essence, transform it artistically, and present it to the children in a way that fits their evolving inner orientation. This fresh approach is not just another theory about good education. Aeppli writes out of practical experience with the intention of sending young adults into the world who can stand on their own two feet and accept responsibility for their own actions.

Can you remember the world of movement, wonder, and intense sensation that you lived in when you were six years old? Does education mean filling a bucket or does it mean lighting a fire? In today’s predominant educational environment, where high-stakes testing and anxiety reign, it’s clear that the goal, though implicit, is to fill buckets. Kim Allsup would like us to start lighting fires—to stop treating children like empty buckets. She sees that the vital essence of education has been sucked out of most schools today; that we must strive, above all, to it bring it ... View more info

True education has a critical mission to play on the planet. Religious life, initially, and nation building subsequently, were, and still are, the main philosophical platforms from which many of our schools are run and operated. But what if the spiritual life of religious schools were founded on untruths and the desire to indoctrinate children's minds?

One possibility, to which this book is dedicated, i... View more info
