Week 19 serves as a bridge between the educational psychology and educational philosophy modules in the course. Students are introduced to two independent school movements - Montessori education and Waldorf education - both of which are deeply rooted in holistic notions of educational psychology (particularly child development theory) and educational philosophy.
