Classroom Considerations

Waldorf Journal Project #16

Jørgen Smit

Compiled and edited by David Mitchell


This 16th Journal Project is a fascinating collection of essays and articles by master teacher Jørgen Smit.  Smit was a class teacher in Bergen, Norway, a founder of the teacher training seminar in Jarna, Sweden, and a member of the Vorstand (Board of Directors) of the International Anthroposophical Society at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland.  He was also a man of deep insight, warmth, and enthusiastic interest in just about everything around him.  These essays are not only elucidating and thought-provoking, they are also wonderfully engaging, like sitting in the living room after a good meal, listening to a wise guest open his mind and heart to you.  Very highly recommended.
