In this second segment of my exploration of “What is Waldorf Education?”, I speak with retired Waldorf Teacher, Hugh Renwick. Hugh, who also happens to be my father in-law, has thirty years of experience as a Waldorf teacher, seven as a high school teacher, and twenty one as class teacher in the lower grades.
Hugh elaborates on what it means to educate to the developmental stage that the child is at, in addition to giving a picture of what those phases look like, which Glynn also touched on in PART 1. He also speaks about the Waldorf curriculum from kindergarten all the way through high school.
In this episode Hugh recommends a book about the Waldorf approach:
“The Recovery of Man in Childhood: A Study in the Educational Work of Rudolf Steiner”
by AC Harwood.
