Silent Way

There are many reasons for the teacher's silence in the Silent Way. Some of these have been stated explicitly in your readings; others have been implied. Can you state the reasons?

I cannot locate my readings, I'm afraid, Ibrahim.

I have been (sorta) allowed into the ivory towers back in the old UK, you'll all probably be disgusted to hear, and curiously even here nobody seems to make use of "the silent way" we were all trained in.

They rather seem to favour the pompous and boring way of pouring abstract composition theory at people who couldn't get into an Asian uni. I bet it works a treat.
