Two copies of Role Reversal: Achieving Uncommonly Excellent Results in the Student-Centered Classroom by Mark Barnes, 20-year classroom teacher and creator of the Results Only Learning Environment, are up for grabs.

After 16 years of “droning at students about classroom rules and the fundamentals of writing,” Barnes transformed his classroom into a Results Only Learning Environment (ROLE). Here students outperform peers in traditional classes and yearn to learn as they are immersed in the methods that, when combined, create a ROLE classroom: autonomy, collaboration, elimination of rules and consequences, narrative feedback, and project-based learning.
