Learning through movement and expression is standard practice in Steiner-Waldorf Lower Schools. Children learn using their hands, through singing and stretching.
Leonore Russell explores whether eurythmy and movement should be used more at High School level, from Years 9 to 12. She considers the developmental stages of these later years, and how eurythmy could be beneficial. The book is full of exercises, songs and suggestions for movement activities at different ages.
Leonore Russell has over thirty years' experience in education and eurythmy and works as a consultant to Waldorf schools. She lives in Garden City, NY.
