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.
