Teaching Ideas – Thinking about Careers in the Spirit of Pestalozzi

by Dr. Joanna Nair for PestalozziWorld

These Teaching Ideas:

 

  • Help students to consider their futures, specifically the world of work, and demonstrate to them the relevance of a Pestalozzi style education to their futures

  • Are linked to Pestalozzi’s approach to education described in ‘Pestalozzi and Education’ available on the JHPestalozzi website.  However, they stand alone and can be taught without reference to the document
