History - Year 2-3

In the junior and senior years, it is vital that students of history learn and retain factual information. Yet the Waldorf teacher aims for something much deeper. In the words of Werner Glas: “It is through living with and into images and pictures with will-filled attention that the act of experiencing can be infused with a seed-like quality and a sense of the future. . . .[Rudolf Steiner] wanted the lessons to be not for the brain alone, but for the whole human being.”

How can we meet the challenge of giving both historical fact and imaginative picture their due? By deepening our understanding of the symptomatological approach, and by examining developmental changes in the junior and senior years, we gradually gain the confidence needed to teach out of Inspiration.
