July 3 to 7, 2017
with Agathe Polach and Flora Seul-Jacklein
World languages are an integral part of Waldorf Education. They support the children's individual development, strengthen their connection to other cultures and perspectives, and prepare them to meet the world with purpose and knowledge. We will unravel the secrets of successful world language teaching, look at methods and contents that reflect the developmental stages of children, and explore rhythms and routines that support world language teaching and its place in our schools. Artistic activities in the afternoons will offer opportunities for self-development as well as practical and artistic elements that you can use in your language teaching.
We expect that participants come with a wide range of backgrounds and experience, and will adapt the course to their needs. The intensive course will be led by Agathe Polach and Flora Seul-Jacklein, whose backgrounds are in teaching French and German. Experience has shown that this course can be meaningful and inspiring for teachers of other languages as well.
Depending on interest, RSCT is considering a more comprehensive certification program for World Language Teachers to be integrated into its part-time teacher development program. If you are interested in a full certification program please let us know. This summer intensive may be credited as part of this future program.
As we want to make sure we meet the needs of participants, we kindly ask that you register by May 30.
