The document below contains some quotes from two recent books:
- Meaningful Action Arnold & Murphey 2013 CUP (A tribute to the great ELT writer Earl Stevick)
- How We Learn and How We Should be Taught Young & Messum 2011 Duo Flumina (A look back over the life and work of Caleb Gattegno, well-known for the Silent Way)
These quotes were used in a presentation by Adrian and Jim at the Devon DOS Association in Exeter in September 2013.
We feel that the work of Stevick and Gattegno is very relevant to any investigation into successful learning.
