How are Core Subjects Taught In Steiner Schools?

The mainlesson is the foundation – an indepth study of a topic which changes every 3-4 weeks. Mainlessons cover ‘core’ subjects such as history, art, literature, science, maths.

Here’s a beautiful window into the Steiner curriculum taught in the school years 7-11. It’s no surprise Waldorf teachers are inspired teaching this material. Covering ancient history, anatomy, geometry, literature and poetry, this small collection of a highschooler’s mainlesson books show the richness, creativity and breadth of Steiner education.

Here at Sydney Rudolf Steiner College we have been developing Steiner teachers since 1989. Looking to transition into Steiner teaching? Enrolments are now open for next year’s course, DEO2 Foundations in Rudolf Steiner Education by distance. Click on the link below for more details.
