Gym & Movement Development Course
June 26 - July 3, 2016 at Aurora Waldorf School

The learning goal of this course is to enrich and enliven teaching approaches, starting with the insights of Rudolf Steiner a century ago and then linking these to more recent research and methods. We will examine the foundations of healthy development that occur through movement, and experience how these foundations can be joyfully built through 'old time' gym, schoolyard and backyard games once played by children all over the world. Many of these activities are in books for teachers and recreation directors published between 1910 and 1950. Each day will include five hours of movement and two hours of supporting pedagogical theory. Sessions will include techniques for identifying needs, planning lessons around individual or class problems, sensory integration, addressing specific academic/developmental goals. The emphasis will be on activities for grades 1 to 4, but we will also experience how these transform for older classes.  Click here for more information.
