If you want to educate others, you yourself need to be educated. If you want to have any kind of influence on young people, you yourself need to stay young and continuously work on yourself.

Teaching Practice
Chemistry, handbook, beginners, science, reader
By: Dirk Rohde, March 2017,

From the campfire to enzyme kinetics


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.
