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" <http://bit.ly/LElQzB> by direct instructionist Wayne Bishop at <http://bit.ly/qvnOIa>, 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 <http://bit.ly/12GYCSR> and part 2 at <http://bit.ly/17pBWdu>.
2. Educational Achievement Foundation's (2006) "A QuickStart Guide to the Moore Method" at <http://bit.ly/ZvQZly>
3. Paul Halmos in "The Problem of Learning to Teach" (Halmos, Moise, & Piranian, 1975) at <http://bit.ly/12BgyOP>.
4. F. Burton Jones (1977) in "The Moore method" at <http://bit.ly/17nyIaB>.
5. Albert C. Lewis (1999) in "Reform and Tradition in Mathematics Education: The Example of R.L. Moore" at <http://bit.ly/YbjUoy>.

7. The MAA review of "The Moore Method: A Pathway to LearnerCentered Instruction" [Coppin, Mahavier, May, & G.E. Parker (2009)] at <http://bit.ly/LEdug3>.
