This wonderful resource book for Steiner-Waldorf class teachers offers ideas for planning, shaping and developing lessons for Classes 1 to 8.

Taking the Waldorf curriculum as its basis, and without being restrictive or prescriptive, this book comes out of a teachers' working group and provides helpful suggestions to both class teachers and subject specialists, adding to the richness and imagination of each teacher's own work.

The book is a truly comprehensive overview of all main-lesson and accompanying subjects, offering a wealth of guidance, knowledge and inspiration for Waldorf class teachers.

This revised third edition is published in association with the Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship.

This volume is based on and translated from Zuir Unterrichtsgestaltung im 1. Bis 8. Schuljahr am Waldorf-/Rudolf Steiner Schulen (Verlag am Goetheanum, 1996).
