Lights off, learning on!

When the lights went out in Robert Teuwen's science class at Waldorf Academy, the learning began.

"We did this experiment where we went into a room that was totally dark. We sat there for a long time and felt what it was like when Mr. Teuwen introduced light to the room again," says Elena, 12. It's the kind of activity that makes attending the school--which stresses active learning--that much more interesting.

"At my old school we definitely had a lot more sitting around. We had less art, and less theatre and less time outdoors. And in most classes we would use a textbook instead of making our own and doing experiments. We had projects and we would have to do experiments at home but we never did anything in the classroom. This is way better."

Jacob, 11, agrees. "I like the teachers a lot. I don't know how to explain it, but they're not as uptight as some other teachers. It's a lot easier to talk to them."
