In this well-illustrated book, Hella Loewe describes her research and practice of working with modeling in the early elementary grades of a Waldorf school. She describes meeting a class of mixed nationalities with social and behavioral challenges and how she was able to temper her class through specific modeling techniques.
Do the children who come into our classrooms today need more will-centered activities? Loewe believes this is indeed the case, and-through her reexamination of Rudolf Steiner's indications-she challenges teachers to take a fresh look at the traditional Waldorf modeling curriculum.
