Introduction to Steiner Education by Francis Edmunds

Book Description

Rudolf Steiner s educational system long established and respected on the European continent is gradually spreading around the world. Its radical principles, based on a view of the human being as composed of body, soul, and spirit, allows for a truly holistic and balanced education that nourishes the whole child. The author explains, in a clear and lively style, many aspects of Steiner s educational theories, especially the three stages of child development and how the Waldorf curriculum provides a healthy understanding, nurturing, and support for these phases. Edmunds discusses the role of the class teacher, the main lesson, the four temperaments, attitudes toward discipline, competition, and examinations. His answers are based on the author s many years of rich and varied experience as an educator of both children and adults. This is an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of Steiner/Waldorf education, whether for teachers or anyone who would like to know more about Steiner s ideas. It is especially useful for parents who are looking for a holistic education for their children."
