New Year. New approach to learning from our mistakes.

New Year. New goal to brush up on our math skills so that we may keep pace with our Waldorf students!
Jamie York’s Art of Teaching Math™ Workshops go online through March 2019 and we’re kicking off this season with a free video from our 8th Grade Online Workshop on Conic Sections... a topic that Waldorf schools introduce earlier than in the world of mainstream math education. And we do it through working with the imagination! Let’s remember, math should exercise and develop our imagination. http://ow.ly/xxLz30n6eCu

Waldorf education is grounded in offering what is developmentally appropriate for children as they age. At WSB this starts with a full assesses of a child's readiness for challenging academics and immersive learning experiences. This increases the likelihood of them becoming confident leaders versus anxious followers.
