Understanding and Teaching History as an Evolution of Consciousness

Friday, March 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - Saturday, March 14, 2015 @ 5:30 pm

A workshop for middle school and high school teachers of history, as well as teachers of the history of art, music, drama, architecture, and language

Facilitated by Stephen Keith Sagarin, PhD

A central problem of learning history is being able to understand and imagine the consciousness of people who are distant from us in time. This workshop, based on the work of Rudolf Steiner and Owen Barfield, offers an opportunity to look at history by way of understanding the evolution of consciousness and to explore ways this understanding can inform how history is taught. Discover new inspiration for your work and come away with new ideas as you and your colleagues bring your own curricula to discuss, compare, and share.

Your workshop includes lecture, discussion, curriculum sharing, and artistic activity.
