Abstract:

This monograph is NOT about teaching - it's about EFFECTIVE LEARNING
from a perspective that leads to an entirely new form of learning and
language acquistion involving transformational discovery, mentorship
and interpretation.Its roots are as old as Socrates. Linguists,
biologists, anatomists, physiologists, psychologists, sociologists
and physicians in the tradition of the "German School" of learning
have contributed over the centuries to what is now nothing less than a
revolution in learning, and the business of teaching. In this seminal
work, I have drawn from contemporary clinical and experimental data
beginning with effective traumatic learning to develop a Neurobiological
theory of learning, including methodology and tenets. When
applied in a traditional language classroom setting, the results have
been nothing short of astounding.With its focus on language
acquisition and learning, this monograph is a treasure-trove of new
information for educators, linguists, "teachers," tutors,
psychologists, physicians and researchers interested in transforming a
field that has remained in the "dark ages" for too long.
