Travel with us into the world of the Waldorf sixth grader. We’ll cover child study of the emerging adolescent, as well as business math, language arts, Roman History, the Middle Ages, geography, and earth science. There’ll be hands-on physics demonstrations, astronomy exercises to aid orientation to sky and earth, and blackboard and main lesson book drawing, among other artistic activities. An hour each day will be devoted to teacher-facilitated discussion groups, targeted to both new and experienced teachers, on topics drawn from the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and relevant to the participants.
