Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School

Main Lessons

The Main Lesson is a uniquely effective factor in Steiner education. The morning starts for every class with a 2 hour lesson focused on one “Big Idea” or topic area for a three week period eg The Alphabet, Norse Myths, Classical Greece, The First Fleet, The Renaissance, Conic Sections.

Through this sustained and integrated teaching method students learn to concentrate and experience material imaginatively and in an interdisciplinary manner.

All Main Lessons employ a three-fold rhythm of learning, a format adapted to the students’ developmental stage: encounter (listen, observe), consider (discuss, interpret), conceptualise (write, illustrate or dramatise, bring to a point of conclusion)

The Main Lesson progression engages all the learning faculties – head, heart and hands – in study that is deep, broad and fulfilling.
