A Fresh Look at High School English: Examining and Expanding the 9th-12th Grade Literature, Speech, and Drama Curriculum

Sunday, July 10, 2016 - Wednesday, July 13, 2016

English BooksSummer Series 2016 course with instructor Carol Bärtges of the Rudolf Steiner School, NYC

Professional development for Waldorf high school English, drama, literature, and speech teachers and faculty chairs

What is essential for us to teach our Waldorf high schoolers and how can we further develop the grades 9-12 English curriculum?  This course takes a fresh look at the Waldorf high school literature, speech, and drama curriculum and explores ways of broadening and deepening it to reflect a global world.

In this course, you will:

  • Explore the essential (and non-essential) themes of the high school curriculum in literature, speech, and drama
  • Take an in-depth look at English main lesson blocks in grades 9-12
  • Discover ways to renew the Waldorf curriculum as we consider the 21st century world
  • Examine the capacities needed by teachers to meet today’s students

Note: This course is taught with the expectation that you have a background in Waldorf Education.
