REVIEW:

Hawthorne Valley Harvest edited by William Ward

From grade one through grade twelve, the annual class play is an essential feature of the life of every Waldorf class. The play is often the defining event of the year, the event most clearly remembered and most often referred to, long after much else of what happened is lost to memory.

William Ward, a longtime class teacher at the Hawthorne Valley School in Harlemville, New York, was an enthusiastic advocate of the Waldorf class play. Ward understood the importance of the class play for the children, their teacher, and for the broader community. He wrote many plays for his classes over the years.
