There's a paper at http://www.melta.org.my/ET/1996/main3.html
about the Silent Way.
Also try RICHARDS, J. C. Approaches And Methods In Language Teaching. 2. ed. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2001.
Anonymous:Re: The Silent Method
Diane Larsen-Freeman in the book Techniques and Principles in Language Teaching includes a chapter entitled "The Silent Way" and H. Douglas Brown in the book Teaching by Principles: An Ineractive Aproach to Language Pedagogy has a number of references to The Silent Method. Accroding to Larsen-Freeman, suggests that Caleb Gattegno's Silent Way shares certain principles with the Cognitive Approach. In other words, "Teaching should be subordinated to learning." The teacher facilitates the learning by observing the students and directing them to the learning experience. Interesting.
