The Art Of Teaching The Waldorf Grades
The Art of Teaching the Waldorf Grades at Woodland Star Charter courses provide an overview of each grade and its integrated curricular themes, clarify rationales for backward-design lesson planning and prepare teachers to deliver artistic lessons, considering learning outcomes, activities, and assessment.
Teachers will feel prepared for the upcoming year and have the opportunity to network and collaborate with colleagues after attending our program. Our integrated, dynamic approach to delivering The Art of Teaching courses is based on Steiner's principles of Soul Economy and maximizes our time together.
