An attempt to summarise his indications ~ A collection of quotations for the benefit of the different Waldorf Schools
E. A. Karl Stockmeyer
Softbound, saddle stitched.
Taken as a living document, Karl Stockmeyer’s collection of various things Rudolf Steiner said about the curriculum for Waldorf education, particularly because they are juxtaposed by his commentaries and reports of things that were done at the Stuttgart school, is a thought-provoking source of inspiration to anyone teaching the grades and high school. Karl Stockmeyer served as a teacher and administrator at the original Waldorf School in Stuttgart during Steiner’s time and continued on after Steiner’s death in 1925. His compilation of Steiner’s thoughts on the curriculum is perhaps the richest and broadest source of both inspiration and direction available on the subject.
Although the English translation is fairly stiffly rendered, at least to an American English speaker’s ear, the liveliness of the thoughts and descriptions that are conveyed transcends that minor difficulty, making this exciting reading for anyone with an interest in further the aims of Waldorf education. It is small wonder that it has been at the side of so many teachers throughout the years.
