Over four Saturdays this winter and spring, join Chris Marlow on a journey of inner and outer transformation. Starting with a raw fleece from local Jacob sheep, we will learn how to wash the wool, card it, and spin it using a drop spindle. In the final class, we will bring color to the yarn we've created using natural dyes grown and harvested in the Fiber Craft Studio's biodynamic dye garden. The first class is January 29 -- join us! - https://mailchi.mp/045e09677606/september-events-5691873

Reminder for Tomorrow 🧵December 14: FCS Handwork Discussion: Handwork Teaching in Practice Part Two at 7:30 pm EST

Hello all, and Happy December!

Since our first discussion about the teaching schedule at our different Schools, several participants have reached out for additional answers regarding the format of the handwork teaching schedule. So, let's take a deeper dive into how to best structure our teaching day. What time of the day is best to teach handwork for each grade? What classes are best to follow? How do you receive students who come from an academic subject into handwork class? Or recess? How have you created a successful learning experience for your students within a less than ideal schedule? What are your insights about teaching split classes?

Please bring your questions and suggestions, many of you have commented that our conversations are helpful and informative. I am grateful to each one of you for your participation, and please know your ongoing commitment makes a difference to your colleagues.

Below please find an excerpt from The Tasks and Content of the Steiner-Waldorf Curriculum by Avison and Rawson about the structure of the School day:

The Structure of the School Day (Chapter 3, Pg 29)

"Each day begins with a two hour period knows as the main-lesson. This teaching unit is integrated and cross-curricular and includes activities to awaken and focus the children's attention, oral and written practice of basic skills, mental arithmetic, music and drawing, presentation of new material, recall and discussion of the previous day's(or earlier) work, individual working, conversation, narrative and practical work.

This is followed by 40-45 minute subject lessons, often doubled for art and crafts.
Priority is given to the morning to the more academic subjects and the afternoons are usually used for arts and crafts, outdoor activities, sport and practical work. Subjects such as music, eurythmy and foreign languages, which benefit from regular practice, are evenly spaced throughout the middle of the day whenever possible….

Creating your own hand-spun yarn can be a very satisfying activity on many levels. Gaining new skills, and then attentively applying them while observing your materials and your process, can lead to a transformative experience for both the fiber and the fiber artisan.

In four Saturday workshops with Chris Marlow, we will wash raw fleece, card it, and spin it. In the final class, we will bring color to our yarn using natural dyes from the Fiber Craft Studio’s dye garden. https://mailchi.mp/b88bba0ec590/september-events-5684881

FCS Handwork Discussion: Pedagogy in Practice Sharing our School's (or Program's) Class Schedule. Our next handwork discussion - Tuesday, November 30 at 7:30 pm ET

Please plan to share the rhythm of your teaching schedule - do you teach in blocks to groups or meet with the same students weekly throughout the year? Are your classes split or do you have an assistant? How does the practice of your teaching impact the curriculum and what considerations do you make in planning your courses for the year? What questions or challenges are you pondering?

Additionally, have you carried any schedule accommodations from distance learning into this year? Are there lessons that you can share?

How is the subject teaching schedule compiled at your School? How do you input into the process?

Looking forward to hearing your questions and insights. Please reach out if there are additional perspectives or topics you would like to discuss.

Fiber Craft Studio Handwork Conversation -Meeting the Seventh Grade Student through Handwork

For our next evening handwork discussion on Tuesday, November 16 at 7:30 pm eastern time - plan to bring your insights on the middle of the middle school - the seventh grade.

Well-established in their adolescence and full of divergent perspectives and challenging behavior and thoughts, these students are often lost in the shuffle between sixth and eighth grade. This is a pivotal age - the 13 year old has moved from Greece to Rome but not arrived at the responsibility and gravitas of 8th grade. What learning goals to you have for your seventh graders? How does the learning experience change at your school in middle school? What handwork projects do you bring - what has really worked with your rebellious and self-contained seventh graders?

Please feel free to reach out if you have specific questions or insights you want to share - many voices make for a fuller conversation so don't hold back if there is something you want to share.

We have decided not to record the conversations, as we want to keep the focus on these meetings as participatory discussions and not lectures. If you are going to miss the discussion I would be glad to share a written summary of what was covered. Just send me an email and I will share a recap with you.

Upcoming Topics (Dates to be Announced):

How to balance administrative and financial considerations in creating an appropriate handwork class schedule
How has remote learning informed your teaching approach? [email protected]
