Some subscribers to MathEdCC might be interested in a recent post "R.L. Moore - Pioneer of Math Education Reform" [Hake (2013)].  The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: Contrary to the misrepresentation of the "Moore Method" <> by direct instructionist Wayne Bishop at <>, I excerpt ten commentaries demonstrating that the Moore Method is, in fact, (a) an example of "math education reform ," and (b) taught by a  "guide on the side." The commentators are:
1. Keith Devlin 1999) in "The Greatest Math Teacher Ever" part 1 at  <> and part 2 at <>.
2. Educational Achievement Foundation's (2006) "A Quick-Start Guide to the Moore Method" at <>
3. Paul Halmos in "The Problem of Learning to Teach" (Halmos, Moise, & Piranian, 1975) at <>.
4. F. Burton Jones (1977) in "The Moore method" at <>.
5. Albert C. Lewis (1999) in "Reform and Tradition in Mathematics Education: The Example of R.L. Moore" at <>.
6. G. Edgar Parker (1992) "Getting More from Moore" at <>.
7. The MAA review of "The Moore Method: A Pathway to Learner-Centered Instruction" [Coppin, Mahavier, May, & G.E. Parker (2009)] at <>.
8. "Discovery Learning Project" at the University of Texas (2013) at <>.
