Renewing Education: Selected Writings on Steiner Education.
Having taught for nearly 30 years in Britain's first Rudolf Steiner school, Francis Edmunds founded Emerson College, an adult education and teacher training center where he was active until his death in 1989. This book contains a collection of Edmunds' writings on Steiner education mostly excerpted from "Child and Man,""The Michael Hall Journal," and "Tomorrow's Agriculture." Whether the subject is educational principles or classroom activity, child development, the teacher's role, or individual subjects, Edmunds worked from the premise that "Education should be the greatest art of all." Essays include "The Call,""Questions from Mexico on Rudolf Steiner Education,""Eight Years with the Same Class Teacher,""Religion, Art, and Science,""Feeling in the Growing Child,""The Death of Baldur and the Festival of Resurrection,""Animal Teaching in the Fourth Class,""The First Approach to Physics,""The Teaching of Religion at a Rudolf Steiner School,""The School Leaving Age," and "Teacher, Doctor and Farmer." Also included is a preface by John Thomson. (MLH)
