2013 Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching  
We focus on the kinds of "cognitive tools" or learning "toolkits" human beings develop as they grow up, which connect emotion and imagination with knowledge in the learning process.  ...  Imagination is rarely acknowledged as one of the main workhorses of learning.  ...  This leads to a simple principle-that all knowledge is human knowledge; that it is derived from human hopes, fears, and passions; and that if we want students to understand the knowledge-reconstruct it  ...
