The Main Lesson

The Main Lesson

The Main Lesson is a unique feature of Steiner education designed to deepen, enrich and unify the learning experience. It is a unit of work on a particular theme, or subject, and is studied each day for three to four weeks. Teachers develop a wide range of artistically and academically integrated and related activities around the central theme. Each Main Lesson relates to the students’ stage of development for that year and is linked to other subjects, building upon prior knowledge, experience and skills in creative ways that engage students in their learning.
