Introduction to principles of Waldorf Education with Horst Hellman
Open to Parents and Teachers
These talks will cover the view of human development that informs Waldorf education in order to prepare for Ingun Schneider's seminars listed below. Participants will be introduced to background information about child development to include the fourfold and threefold view of the human being, how children learn in the first and second seven years periods of their lives and how Waldorf Education addresses these developmental stages.
There is a need to understand different rhythms in order for a child to grow up healthy and strong. However, if there are disturbances during the childhood years, this may show up as various deficiencies such as inability to focus, behaviors of fidgety and uncontrolled movements, forgetfulness and social difficulties.
Workshop A : Participants who have little or no knowledge of Waldorf Education must attend this workshop to proceed to Workshop B & C.
Workshop B : Welcome Parents & Teachers who have been through basic workshops/teacher training for Waldorf Education.
Workshop C : Welcome Teachers from all streams. To avoid repetition and in order to introduce more movements for the classroom, we ask that teachers first attend workshop B.
Classes will cover both theory and practice, so please come prepared to move. If you have eurythmy shoes or similar comfy sport shoewear, please bring them.
