Recorded here is my own personal collection of articles, resources, favorite links, teaching ideas, and lesson plans. It encompasses many years, from the very beginning of my experience studying and learning about Waldorf to the present time. People from all around the world visit my site and recommend it to others. Welcome!
This site records my journey. I hope my honesty is encouraging and helps break down some barriers that may prevent people from trying Waldorf methods. Because this is an ongoing site documenting my curriculum planning and ideas, some materials are more Waldorf-y than others. Please feel free to take what you like and leave the rest.
Philosophy lesson plans
WHEN to teach Philosophy is a source of great contention; I leave it up to your discretion. I am comfortable
teaching it in elementary and middle school. Others would insist high school.

Little Big Minds: Sharing Philosophy with Kids
by Marietta McCarty
You will not be able to successfully teach children philosophy simply by looking at the booklist below; you will
need her book (above) for her teaching tips, discussion questions, and exercises
Facing Your Fears, and
Finding Your Voice.
Marietta suggests the following:
world map or globe
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
Thoughts on the Education of Daughters
Hansel and Gretel performance
