Stephen Hawking recently paid tribute to his maths teacher, Dikran Tahta.
I knew Dick Tahta later became a professor of mathematics at Cambridge and worked with Caleb Gattegno (bit.ly/1SxWU2A) at the Association of Mathematics Teachers (ATM), but I didn't know that Tahta had introduced his PGCE students to Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed in 1978. See Tony Brown's comments on Hawking's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2srGloZ673A&feature=youtu.be

Donald Cherry has shared his Silent Way classroom videos in a way it's very easy to search for topics. Nice visual presentation too. 😎
Thanks, Don.

I'm answering in a separate post so other people who might like to read further on this subject get to see the link: http://subtle.site/pedagogical-articles/silent-way/working-on-the-student/

Many years ago Ros got two colleagues and me to write about the subject for her PhD and I synthesised what we wrote into an article and made it more readable by avoiding repetitions. The subtitle of the article is "What four Silent Way teachers say to their students".

Some people have expressed the need for extra practice - particularly with the the schwa. My students often felt the same way so I made some online exercises for them to practice out of class. A few of them are here: http://www.esl-exos.info/pronunciation-exercises/
The Limericks exercise works on stress and the schwa. (With students I didn't refer to the other members of the schwa family.)
