This will be an intensive four-hour online class for individual grades, seeking to give teachers a grounding in the WHY, WHAT, and HOW for each grade. We will explore the physical, social, and soul development of the child that shines forth in that particular grade. We will look at the blocks that are indicated for each grade and gain an understanding of how those subjects support and nurture that child’s development. We will speak about how those subjects can be brought to the class, as well as practical considerations.
Participants will receive a list of resources to assist the teacher in exploring the subjects further and guide them in their preparations. There will be time for participants to bring their individual questions. In August, there will be an additional two-hour online class as a follow-up time to explore these subjects and bring questions that may arise as one prepares for the coming year.
