Sybil Marshall
This is an experiment, spanning 18 years, of a teacher in a one room village school which catered to children between four and eleven years old, who at the beginning of the experiment were bored, lazy, and largely illiterate.

Teacher - The testament of an inspired teacher [117KB]
Sylvia Aston-Warner
This seminal work prompts us to radically alter the way we transmit knowledge to the young. Sylvia Aston-Warner’s exhilarating and simple concept of “organic teaching” based on over twenty years of teaching, uses a “key vocabulary” in which the teacher enters the children’s own experience to help them read and write. The book is well illustrated with a lot of examples. But this is no treatise. Through her teaching diaries and her extraordinary teaching scheme, this dedicated writer and teacher has also created a work of art.
