  1. I have been reading your book Beyond Learning By Doing, and absolutely love your ideas and your use of the river as a metaphor for theoretical currents in education.

  2. Dr. Roberts, I am grateful for you book Beyond Learning by Doing. I have been working my way through Dewey’s Democracy and Education and Experience in Education, I’ll admit it has been a challenge on my own. But reading BLbD has helped clarify Dewey’s philosophies quite a bit. Thank you.
