Adolescence – The Search for the Self

and Weaving the Social Fabric of the Class

Eugene Schwartz

Two Lectures on Waldorf Education



The first lecture develops a threefold picture of adolescence and offers helpful suggestions for parents and teachers. I especially appreciates Schwartz’s depiction of the often agonizing emotional passage that is the hallmark of adolescence – and how that passage can be unseen by we adults.

The second lecture offers wonderful insights and advice to teachers as to how to help the students in a class see each other with kindness and how to foster a willingness to work together. Schwartz focuses on how the temperaments can be brought into play toward this end.

These two lectures are gems!
