Teaching 21st Century Skills
Watch this video through to the end (15 well-spent minutes). At about minute 13.5, Lichtman shares three principles for schools: Teach into the Unknown, Develop Self-Evolving Learners, and Be a Self-Evolving Organization. These three principles align perfectly with Green Meadow’s mission, and it’s exciting to see alignment between mainstream thinking and the wisdom of Waldorf.
Teach into the Unknown, Develop Self-Evolving Learners, and Be a Self-Evolving Organization.

At GMWS, we understand that Waldorf Education prepares students not for the world of today but for the world they will enter when they graduate, the world of tomorrow (Lichtman’s “teaching into the unknown”).
In our materials, we have used the phrase “lifelong learners” (akin to Lichtman’s “self-evolving learners”).
And we are committed, through faculty training and regular self-reflection and accreditation processes, to being an evolving organization that changes to meet the needs of the students in our care.
