Extra Lesson for the Whole Class with Lynn Aaberg

November 14, 2020 8:30a-3:30p || Cost: $65

The Extra Lesson was created by Waldorf teacher Audrey McAllen, who developed exercises and movement activities based on Rudolf Steiner’s pedagogical indications, which specifically address challenges that children experience in their will senses and movement body. These exercises were originally intended for work with individual students, but  more and more, class teachers are finding that these extra lesson exercises benefit all children, and are finding ways to integrate them into their daily work. 

In this workshop, we will explore these exercises in both an intellectual capacity and through practice.  We will work with body geography, spatial orientation, integration of vertical and horizontal  midlines, hand-eye coordination, and development of will senses.

Lynn Aaberg has been a student of Waldorf education and anthroposophy for the past 25 years.  Lynn trained at Eugene Waldorf Teacher Training and Sunbridge College. Lynn is certified in Orton Gillingham reading instruction, and is currently working on an educational support certification through Association for Healing Education.   In addition to her work with WISC, Lynn has taught at the Kula Makua Teacher Training Program in Honolulu, has been a workshop presenter and speaker at various Waldorf conferences, and is currently a consultant and mentor for Waldorf schools.

Diversity, Inclusion, and Equality: Teaching from the Inside Out with Debbie Laurin, Ph.D

November 21, 2020 8:30a-1:30p || Cost: $40

We will cultivate self-awareness about cultural development. What norms and values were given to you by your own national and ethnic culture? Increasing cultural competency requires developing self-awareness of the cultural lens through which you make meaning when you encounter diversity. Also developing awareness of the different perspective of the diverse other. We will focus on the child and seek to understand anti-bias education in the early childhood setting. Johanna Laurelin will lead Eurythmy.

Dr. Debbie Laurin, Ph.D. is faculty at the West Coast Institute Waldorf Early Childhood Teacher Training and serves on the Scientific committee for Pikler® USA.
