Understanding Waldorf Education
A jargon-free view of Waldorf education and its philosophy of the importance of a three-dimensional education. Since their inception over 80 years ago, Waldorf Schools have offered a much-needed model for educational reform. The author provides a compelling, clearly written picture of the key components of a Waldorf Education, focusing especially on child learning experiences that develop thought, feeling, and intentional, purposeful activity. Ideal for Waldorf parents and teachers, this book gives a clear, common sense understanding of this uncommon education. Jack Petrash has been a Waldorf teacher for over 30 years, much of that time at the Washington Waldorf School in the USA, where he has taken three classes of children from Class 1 to Class 8.
