A Collaborative Workshop for Waldorf High School Teachers, February 17 – 19

Getting Out of Their Way:
Fostering Creativity, Imagination and Initiative in Today’s Waldorf High School Students

What does it mean to an adolescent to be creative? How can we, as teachers, make the space and mood to foster creativity? If given the chance, will our students take the initiative to let their imaginations roam and bring to life ideas never before thought?

Joan Caldarera and Jon McAlice will lead morning sessions exploring aspects of inner development, individuality and presence in adolescents. Afternoons will be focused on practices for increasing self-directed activity in the various disciplines.

It is possible that now we are called to challenge the students, provide the materials they need—and then to get out of their way as they discover the world for themselves. What would it look like in our classrooms if we were advisors, not evaluators; if our students acted as peer reviewers and “graded” each other? If failure were seen as just another possibility on the way to understanding? If teachers and students actively engaged the unknown—together?

February 3 – Community Gathering – Bay Area Anthroposophy

A Special Community Gathering: The Present Moment

3:00 – 5:00 pm  – SF Waldorf High School

You are invited to share in the first of several community gatherings around
themes that concern us today..in the Present Moment:
Who are we as a people?
Who am I as an individual in this present time?
Themes to explore:
Can we find community in a time of deep concern about political, social,
economic, spiritual uncertainty?
Can we find humanity in a time of mechanization in all spheres of life, including thinking?
What is the Threefold Commonwealth and can we strive towards attaining it?  Can I find the good?

We ask that you consider sharing with the group, for 5 minutes, a concern that you prepare in advance of the gathering. You will be asked to sign-in on a list of those who would like to speak. We will time ourselves!  We will also break out into groups that would like to develop and “carry” a theme to be presented in future Present Moment gatherings.
We sincerely hope to see you soon
