(Revised second edition) Introduction by Roberto Trostli

Book Cover spacer

“The primary task of a Waldorf teacher is to understand the human being in body, soul, and spirit. The approach, the curriculum, and the methods of an education that can address the whole child will grow from this understanding.” —Roberto Trostli

Waldorf education—an established and growing independent school movement—continues to be shaped and inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s numerous writings and lectures on education and child development.

In Rhythms of Learning, key lectures on children and education have been thoughtfully chosen from the vast amount of material by Steiner and presented in a context that makes them reader-friendly and accessible. In his many discussions and lectures, Steiner shared his vision of education that considers the spirit, soul, and physiology in children as they grow.

Roberto Trostli, a seasoned Waldorf teacher, has selected the works that best illustrate the fundamentals of this unique approach. In each chapter, Trostli explains Steiner’s concepts and describes how they work in the contemporary Waldorf classroom. We learn how the teacher–child relationship and the Waldorf school curriculum changes as the students progress from kindergarten through high school.

Rhythms of Learning, is an excellent resource for parents who want to understand how their child is learning. Parents will also be more prepared to discuss their child’s education with teachers, and teachers will find it to be a valuable reference source and communication tool.

“Our new generation of children will need an education that not only addresses their intellects but also cultivates their artistic abilities and develops their practical skills. Above all they will need an education that can nurture the capacities that will allow them to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Emil Molt knew the man who developed a form of education that meets those needs; that man was Rudolf Steiner.” —Roberto Trostli
