Pre-Adolescent Brain Development and the Waldorf Middle School
With the advent of modern medical imaging, we understand much more about the neurological development of the 10 – 15 year old human being.  How do Rudolf Steiner’s indications for the middle school (6th – 8th) meet this age group in the modern world?  What can we, as teachers and parents, do to support their healthy development?

Amy Elder has been a Waldorf middle school teacher for over a decade.  Prior to this, she worked in pharmaceutical/biomedical research in the fields of neurology and psychology.  Currently she is working as a mentor for teachers in the Davis Waldorf middle school.

How Waldorf Education Creates Scientists
March 8, Thursday, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
From kindergarten nature walks to high school studies of optics, evolution and biological chemistry, Waldorf education develops the curiosity, creativity and imagination necessary for success in the sciences. We will look at how and why teaching 'from the phenomena' excites learners about science and develops scientific thinking. You will learn how Waldorf science teachers work with the phenomena differently at each stage, specifically during the middle grades of the child's development to enliven and inspire. Presented by Christine Gruhn, PhD.
