Educating the Will

Michael Howard penetrates the depth of Waldorf education’s unique process of educating the “will” in children.

He takes the reader on a thought-filled journey into the qualities and training of the “thinking-will” the “feeling will” and the “comprehensive or common will”.

The final chapter offers practical exercises for application along with photo examples of projects.

The projects include:

  • Indoor sandbox
  • Form modeling
  • Seed drawing
  • Sand modeling
  • Modeling human and animal forms
  • Stone carving
  • Wooden spoons and bowls
  • Platonic solids
