The Journal of Suggestive-Accelerative Learning and Teaching, v1 n3 Fall 1976
Five papers are presented that deal with the theory and methodology of suggestive learning. The psychological basis of suggestopedia and its application to language instruction are outlined by Gabriel Racle in "The Key Principles of Suggestopedia." An outline of the organization of a classical suggestopedic language course is appended to this article. M.R. Capehart describes the uneven effectiveness of "A Suggestopedia-Based Strategy for Teaching Statistics to Mathophobic Students." Win Wenger arrives at a tentatively positive answer to his question, "Do Synchronicities in the Suggestopaedic Teaching Method Enhance Learning?" Kurt A. Fuerst describes unique features of student-teacher interaction in a suggestopedic French course for Canadian civil servants, in "Some Observations of Behavior in a Suggestopedic French Language Class.""Suggestopedia: A Transpersonal Approach to Learning," by Allyn Prichard, reviews the historical background of learning theories; suggestopedia is viewed as a pragmatic amalgam of behaviorist and humanist approaches. Finally, six abstracts of articles from the Bulgarian journal "Suggestology and Suggestopedia" are included. (JB)
