Of Hydrochloric Acid und Nitrogen: Teaching Chemistry – A Beginners Guide


In 2013 Dirk Rohde published a teacher's resource book called Chemistry Reader on how to establish chemistry teaching at Waldorf schools. The handbook has been written especially for beginners and covers chemistry in grades 7 to 12. We are publishing the complete Chemistry Reader here as a pdf document, with kind permission by Dr. Rohde.

Dr. Rohde encourages teachers to develop their own chemistry curriculum. The Reader is not meant to be a book of recipes.

 

The teaching of chemistry aims to connect to the pupils life; as does every subject taught at Waldorf schools.

 

The author draws on a wealth of resource material by various teachers who have influenced chemistry teaching from the beginnings of Waldorf education to today. You will find an overview for chemistry in grades 7 to 12, lectures by Eugen Kolisko, Rudolf Steiner and Frits H. Julius and a lot more material. There is also an extensive literature list.

 

The Chemistry Reader has been published in German, English, Russian and Spanish.
