Why choose GRADALIS for your Professional Development needs? What makes this program unique?
We support the working teacher. Grade level webinars and mentoring help you plan and review main lesson content and provide a platform for teachers to communicate with one another about questions in their classrooms. Main lesson and artistic work are presented by master Waldorf teachers to ensure growth and improve the quality of the work within their classrooms.
We have a Dedicated Faculty. Our core faculty, known as Stewards, maintain a connection that remains constant throughout the entire program.
Our faculty has experience in the public sector as well as independent Waldorf schools. We are able to help schools and teachers work with State and Common Core Standards without compromising the principles in our schools. Our candidate teachers learn to create and use formative assessments, interpret results and provide instruction for maximum effectiveness in the classroom.
GRADALIS builds community. Through artistic work, movement, biography, and study, faculties become learning communities. In this environment of trust, people are able to take risks, become vulnerable, experiment, research, and support one another. This lays a good foundation for the growth of a healthy school.
Our Scaffolded Curriculum includes the philosophical roots of this type of education and an understanding of the remedial and therapeutic role in education today.
GRADALIS is part of a world-wide movement. It extends from your school to schools around the globe.
