The Waldorf education system has a unique structure which allows for a deeper, more thoughtful learning environment. Often students study a single subject for three, four, or five weeks, which is quite different to standard approaches to education where subjects can be switched every 45 minutes. This immersion into a single subject helps students develop a more in-depth understanding of the topic.

Drawing on his decades of teaching experience, Frans Lutters outlines the positive impact of block or immersion learning, describing the practice in detail and considering its effectiveness. He explores how the subject can then be carefully crafted to meet the age and developmental phase of the students.

This is an insightful guide for teachers looking to understand the benefits of block learning in the classroom for child development.


Frans Lutters has been a Waldorf teacher in the Netherlands for over 30 years. He is the author of Who Is Harry Potter?, The Grail Mystery and the Seven Liberal Arts, and An Exploration into the Destiny of the Waldorf School Movement.
