Format: Paperback
This book on the philosophy of Rudolph Steiner and his development stages of children is a good perspective on Steiner's work on education. It is thought provoking, and recommended for those who question the way children are educated in public schools. A.C. Harwood's description of the Waldorf programs was helpful in understanding the importance of a multidisciplinary education system which works with the different parts of the child's brain, and, at the same time, integrates this broad-based curriculum with the appropriate stage of development.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I chose this book because my daughter is home schooling in the Steiner method and I wished to learn more about it.
I think it presents an interesting alternative view to educating a child. It's not new, the Waldorf schools have been in operation since the thirties. Its radically different from general North American education with its emphasis on early learning of musical instruments, art, literature, verbal skill development and physical movement. The lack of concern about the introduction of reading until the child is deemed ready - often after ten or eleven years old - I find very hard to agree with and also the deliberate lack of inclusion of technology, for example computer skills - which are so necessary in today's world. However, I do think there is much in the Steiner method of education that would benefit children to become better rounded individuals as in today's schools there is so little emphasis on the arts and cultural history.
