If you haven’t checked out the site of the American Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), you really should.
AWSNA is the association that governs the collection of Waldorf schools. It’s an amazing group of people who are committed to Waldorf Education and they work together to support the movement.
This website is just one of the many ways AWSNA strengthens and supports Waldorf schools, but the site is just as valuable for parents and individuals who love Waldorf Education.
I really like the site’s “news and events” section which is a page that links out to Waldorf content all over the web. It’s where I discovered this great article about current trends in handwriting and what is lost as we focus on keyboarding skills rather than handwriting.
There is so much great content on the Why Waldorf Works site, that it’s really worth heading to and just exploring, but here is a list of some of my favorite links.
- Why Waldorf Works facts
- List of articles
- Current topics and common myths
- Waldorf Education internationally
My favorite part of the site, though, is the section that can be accessed by any affiliated school, with a password. There are tons of resources about teaching, governance, child development — all kinds of things that other schools have created and contributed to. If you’re affiliated with a school it’s worth asking your administrator for the password and checking out the links.
