Introduction by Craig Giddens
with Teachers - Steiner: For two
weeks, prior to the opening of the first Waldorf school in
Stuttgart, Rudolf Steiner intensively prepared the individuals
he had chosen to become the first Waldorf teachers. At 9:00
a.m. he gave the course now translated as
The Foundations of Human
Experience; at 11:00 a.m.,
Practical Advice to Teachers; and
then, after lunch, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., he held the
informal "discussions" published in this book.
The tone is spontaneous and relaxed. Steiner does not
prescribe specific methods but introduces topics and
situations, giving guidelines and allocating practical
assignments that are taken up and discussed in the next
session. In this way, the discussions are filled with insights
and indications in many different areas of teaching - history,
geography, botany, zoology, form drawing, mathematics.
Speech exercises are included. This edition also includes, for
the first time in English, three very important lectures on
the curriculum given on the day before the school opened.
These fifteen discussions constitute an essential part of the
basic training material for Waldorf teachers.
