    Some interesting ideas regarding a student centered classroom. Plan on using some of them. However, his claim that this is the only effective way to teach students is ridiculous. No system will work for everyone & not all teachers would be comfortable or effective in this system. Yes, he has had positive results, but 2 years of results from only one teacher is hardly scientific. Also, in every example he cites from his prior years of teaching he acts like an a**hole. In his ROLE class he act [...]

    I read this book for a student centered learning classroom along with the book "Cultivating the Learner-Centered Classroom" by Tollefson and Osborn and felt like this book resonated with me much more. I had wanted to read this book for a while having been familiar with the Author's work. While jumping into results only learning (one of his key ideas for a student centered classroom), may not be for everyone, he presents the idea in a manner that lets you easily take from the book what you want.

    Barnes provides an excellent framework for personalized learning for your students. Certainly a must read for all current or soon-to-be educators! Try to read this with a book group or a whole school. I cannot wait to support my teachers in developing ROLE in their classrooms.

    Not sure how I feel about all of this. Such a huge change from what I have been taught and how I have taught. But if it really is a better way to teach then I guess I owe it to them to try it.

    This is somewhat utopic but not as far off as it may seem.

    To teachers who consider themselves the fountain of knowledge, the "captain my captain" of the classroom, or the mesmerizing storyteller, this book presents an uncomfortable thesis. Students learn most effectively when teachers talk less and listen more. The workshop approach the book outlines requires a shift from teacher-centered pontificating and judgement to student-centered activity and self-assessment. This means prioritizing student needs, honoring student voice, and abandoning teacher eg [...]

    This book really helped me stretch my thinking on how we teach and the role of assessment and feedback. My only hang up is that I'm still trying to figure out a graceless classroom in an educational model so entrenched (and obsessed!) with grades.

    The book's heart is in the right place. It advocates ditching grades (unless you can't) and ditching homework (though your students will have to read at home to complete 25 books in a year, so isn't that "homework"?). I got a few good ideas from it, specifically the whole-year projects such as creating a character and choosing a favorite time in history, then writing a yearlong diary of that person. Hey, if you pull one or two ideas from any PD book, it's a good thing. Just wish this one was a l [...]

    Excellent ideas. I wish there were more practical applications for the classroom, but I'm already making a lot of changes in my classroom. Several teachers in my district are moving to a ROLE classroom. Reading #2- still good stuff. Can't help but wonder why he went into teaching if he was a jerk to his kids when he started. He makes a point to discuss his attitude and behavior changes, which is great. But geesh Any way, I'm moving more and more this direction. Adding to and shifting how my clas [...]

    If you want to revamp your middle-school classroom, read this. If you already don't give worksheets, homework, quizzes or tests, and want to give your students even MORE autonomy, give it a shot. I questioned much of the first three chapters, and then enjoyed how the author got into the HOW for the rest of the book. It made me begin to think that this is actually feasible. Read my final book review on Middle Web (middleweb/) once it comes out.

    I'm sure like most teachers that will read this book that "no grades" is almost the point where you think you will stop reading. However, I suggest you stick it out and listen to what Barnes has to say. I have taught in situations much like his and gone through many of the same struggles. I have not pushed the limits to what Barnes does, but his results speak for themselves. I think many teachers would benefit from reading and considering a ROLE reversal of their own.

    I'm very glad I read this and not just Five Minute Teacher. Role Reversal helped me understand Barnes's ROLE teaching method. I think there are a lot of great ideas here and I'm thinking about incorporating them into my classroom this year. I'm still a little skeptical about how these ideas will work with elementary students (Barnes is a middle school teacher) but I think I'm going to give it a try anyway.

    I am inspired by the joy this man teaches with. Teaching the whole child is what I originally signed up for. All children do not fit in a one-size-fits-all box. Our job should be to inspire and bring out their best learning! This book reinforces what I believe to be true about really great teachers!

    In my eyes this quote sums up the entire resource-"If you can drink that bottle [of passion], also remembering to fail, learn, and then repeat the process over again, then I think you'll have a life worth living." ~Paul Anderson Be open to charting untested waters & allow your students to guide the journey.

    Loved the ideas. Wished a bit more acknowledgement of the struggle to shift from a traditional class to a student-centered class was in there to ground it in reality (it's there, just buried way at the back). Also, the "this is the best way to be teaching and everyone needs to do it" may be off-putting for teachers who aren't there yet.

    I enjoyed the alternative approach to managing a classroom and teaching that this book proposed. I would have liked more examples of ways to establish assessments and plan lessons for school programs based on a quarterly, graded program. This is a novel approach and sounds good; taking the class that accompanies the theories in the book may help to put what the book proposes into action.

    Tips for making your classroom a Results Only Learning Environment, including no grades, narrative feedback, choice, workshop setting, year-long projects, collaboration Some interesting ideas, but difficult to implement in a high school environment (The author is a middle school Language Arts teacher).

    Great but no math suggestionsI have been looking for ways to incorporate this in a math class but nothing yet. I have gone grade less and hw less, which is a good start though.
