2010 Graduation
 

On the last Thursday in May, AWS celebrated its 4th annual graduation ceremony in the beautiful sanctuary of East Lake United Methodist Church. It was a lovely evening, and watching the 8th graders was yet another reminder of why I, especially as a developmental psychologist, truly love Waldorf education— it celebrates meaningful rites of passage deliberately and by design.

Waldorf / Montessori comparison

How are Waldorf Schools and Montessori Schools alike/different? I love this question because I love the story that answers it. Legend has it that Maria Montessori and Rudolf Steiner met after the first World War to discuss how best to heal society after such devastating tragedy.  Both scientists and philosophers, they agreed that education of the future generation was the key for a healthy future. Montessori felt that in Italy, all people ever did was feel, feel, feel, and they never THOUGHT about ANYthing. Steiner felt that people in Germany engaged in plenty of thinking, but it wasn’t permeated with any FEELING. So, they each created an educational method that provided balance in their respective societies.

6th/7th Grade Spanish - Jose Marti

Senora Mixon took advantage of a call for artwork surrounding the topic of the White Rose, a nonviolent resistance movement in Germany during World War II. Students translated Jose Marti’s poem, “I Cultivate a White Rose,” and then completed artistic renderings using pastels. Children ages 3 to 18 years have sent in artistic responses to the theme of the courage to stand alone in the face of unjust practices.

3rd Grade Gardening
from Melissa Downs

“We have been using Wednesday afternoons to prepare and plant our garden. Each student had three square feet of space and chose three different vegetables to plant. Before we ever put seeds in the garden, we tilled the soil, added some soil amendments,  and built little one-foot fences to mark out the different garden plots. Then we planted our cool weather vegetables – carrots, peas, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, beets, radishes, and onions. And just before spring break, we were rewarded with the sight of many seedlings!”
