Waldorf High School Teaching



Here is information about the Waldorf high school teacher PLD that is being offered by Julian Thomson and is endorsed by Taruna College, New Zealand:

This course is aimed at teachers who have either recently trained, transferred to a Waldorf school from a state teaching background, or are established Waldorf teachers wanting a fresh perspective for teaching adolescents in a Waldorf high school

Teacher and students in the outdoors

The online course includes 9 sessions divided into two sections. Each webinar session is about an hour long and is being presented live. During the live sessions and there will be some time for comments / questions at the end, so expect each session to be about 90 minutes. 

The presentations are recorded and available online after each live session is completed.

This orientation course gives a framework for understanding the holistic and integrated approach required for teachers working in a Waldorf high school.

The course includes clear and valuable practical advice, tips and strategies that will give you a firm foundation for  your work in a Waldorf high school. The worked examples are mainly from the earth and life sciences curriculum.

Part 1: (Live sessions 17th to 20th January 7.30pm)

The first 4 sessions are an orientation to the high school and its holistic approach to the curriculum.

Part 2: (From Sunday 30th January weekly until Sunday 27th February 7.30pm) 

The second part will be a more detailed look at each year level from Classes 8 to 12 over 5 sessions, focusing on how to integrate the teaching programme with the Waldorf understanding of the psychological developmental phases of adolescence. Julian will use a main lesson from social studies, earth or life sciences at each year level to illustrate examples of this approach.
