Individualization and Differentiation in the Consciousness Soul Age: Advanced Seminar for Experienced Waldorf Teachers.

Sound Circle is excited to announce a new professional development course designed for experienced teachers in our region, Individualization and Differentiation in the Consciousness Soul Age: Advanced Seminar for Experienced Waldorf Teachers.

This new course provides an opportunity for experienced Grades and High School teachers to explore deeper aspects of the Waldorf curriculum and teaching and bring what they learn into practice with colleagues at their schools. The course is appropriate for teachers who have completed training and have a minimum of five years of successful teaching in a Waldorf School.

Led by Nettie Fabrie, Wim Gottenbos and guest teachers, the course will explore how to:

  • Find inspiration and renewal as experienced teachers

  • Better connect our teaching to the impulse of Anthroposophy

  • Develop new impulses in our teaching through collegial collaboration

  • Do joint research into pedagogical issues we face

  • Share wisdom and wealth from our experience

  • Further an understanding and practical application of Individualization and Differentiation (polarities, temperaments, learning styles)

  • Re-enliven the genius of individual subjects

  • Re-enliven the rhythm of the week

  • Deepen our capacity for child observation and understanding child development

The course begins in October 2018 and will run for four weekend sessions ending in March 2020. Each weekend will run from dinner on Thursday through Saturday midday and will include presentations, movement, singing, study and collaborative work. Separate sessions will focus on Polarities, Temperaments and Soul Types, and Learning Styles, and one session will be with Christof Wiechert. Sessions will be held either in Seattle or on Whidbey Island. Cost of each session is $450 plus common meals. Reduced fees for multiple participants from a single school are $400.

We are requesting that interested teachers contact us with their initial interest by July 1 and complete an application before September 15

We hope that you can join us on this new journey of deepening our practice of teaching.
