Vancouver Waldorf School – Movie Monday
Each Monday we will feature a short film relating to Waldorf Education. Perhaps a lecture, pedagogical content, sister-school production, or tutorial.
Please enjoy today’s presentation:
Sister School – Detroit Waldorf School
Another one from our friends at the Detroit Waldorf School.
Detroit Waldorf School seeks to provide a holistic education through experiential, hands-on learning, a lack of standardized testing, and a heavy incorporation of music and art in the curriculum. Described by one parent as “a castle in the clouds”, Waldorf received an A for climate from Excellent Schools Detroit.
* The Vancouver Waldorf School provides an experiential, age appropriate approach to education based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner that inspires students to love learning, to be creative, open-minded, and compassionate. With a curriculum that integrates all academics with the arts and social learning, Waldorf Education develops not only the left and right hemispheres of the brain, but the whole human being. A child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development is considered equally, supporting a conscious unfolding of the individuality within each student. Waldorf graduates possess capacities for empathy and clear, creative and independent thinking that enables them to carry out a chosen course of action with moral courage and social responsibility.
