Most widely held works by Sybil Marshall
An experiment in education by Sybil Marshall( Book )
29 editions published between 1963 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 911 libraries worldwide
Sybil Marshall recounts eighteen years' work at Kingston County Primary School in Cambridgeshire, beginning with a glance back at her own childhood (and her experience of 'art' as it was then 'taught'), and ending with the prospect of her going at last to Cambridge to read the English tripos, as a mature scholar with a bursary from the Extra-Mural Board. The essential point about her method- the 'symphonic method' as she calls it- is that art takes its rightful place as an element in the whole business of education. The plates reproduce the children's work.--[book jacket]

Fenland chronicle : recollections fo William Henry and Kate Mary Edwards, collected and edited by their daughter by Sybil Marshall( Book )
8 editions published between 1967 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 87 libraries worldwide
William Edwards died in 1940 at the age of eighty, his wife is still alive. In this book of recollections, compiled by their daughter, they look back on a hundred years of life in the Fens. They speak in their own direct and vigourous way, richly figurative and often sardonically humorous of the people and times they have known. The Fens are still markedly different from other parts of England, and the character of the land has produced its own way of life. Mr Edwards was by turns turfcutter boat owner along the waterways, windmill proprietor, drainage superintendent, and small farmer, so he and his wife saw each truly Fenland occupation from the inside; he as the worker and she as the housewife. They remember a time when conditions were in many ways very harsh, yet the life and the place produced people of tough individuality, with an outlook and a speech of their own
