Description:

Competency Area: Educational & Social Policy
Restricted to entering Summer Sequence Waldorf students.

This course will work with research methods based upon the essential view of the human being and the basic exercises outlined in Esoteric Science by Rudolf Steiner. We will design and discuss research projects to be completed by students during the following school year, and explore suitable research methods. Discussions will include aspects of evolving consciousness and how personal change can influence social change in school communities. Required reading before the first session: chapters 1, 2, 3 & 5 of Esoteric Science. Students are also expected to bring a 2-3 page typed review of the second chapter to the first class.
