Source materials

This material consists of 21 protocols, primarily transcripts from audio recordings, some of which have been absorbed directly into the chapter “Sketches of Natural Learning,” and others used in “The Development of Objectives.” Some are in character more like the Vignettes of The Intimate Study, which derived from them. All are presented here, scanned from original typescripts, with addenda from Rob’s work and computer printouts, to the extent preserved. For pointers to source material about Rob in The Intimate Study, see LC1c-Text Rob in TIS Vignettes

Protocols 1-21, with supporting materials; Robby Lawler at 7-8 years
