At primary, Connie and Harold Rosen's explorations of good practice, for a Schools Council Project, is still widely read for its sensitive documentation and powerful commentary (Rosen & Rosen, 1973). It is interesting to set this alongside Michael Armstrong's fascinating accounts of children learning in his Closely Observed Children (Armstrong, 1980). At secondary level, Peter Medway has reached teachers everywhere with his account of an innovative course intended to help young learners achieve autonomy, Finding a Language (Medway, 1980).
