Want to make your students more responsible for their own learning? Want to create an academic environment in which students thrive and develop a genuine thirst for knowledge? Want to improve your students' standardized test results but avoid a qteach-to-the-testq mentality that throttles creativity and freedom? In this book, Mark Barnes introduces and outlines the Results Only Learning Environment--a place that embraces the final result of learning rather than the traditional methods for arriving at that result. A results-only classroom is rich with individual and cooperative learning activities that help students demonstrate mastery learning on their own terms, without being constrained by standards and pedagogy. By embracing results-only learning, you will be able to transform your classroom into a bustling community of learners in which? * Students collaborate daily on a number of long-term, ongoing projects. * Students receive constant narrative feedback. * Yearlong projects target learning outcomes more meaningfully than worksheets, homework, tests, and quizzes. * Freedom and independence are valued over punitive points, percentages, and letter grades. * Students manage themselves and all but eliminate the need for traditional classroom management. Learn how your students can take charge of their own achievement in an enjoyable, project-based, workshop setting that challenges them with real-world learning scenarios--and helps them attain uncommonly excellent results.In fact, Allington and Gabriel very pointedly say that teachers should a€œeliminate almost all worksheets and workbooksa€ ... suggest that basic note-taking, guided reading, and rote memorization activities do not increase student achievement, ... Only the latter worksheet has even a speck of higher-level thinkinga€” encouraging students to apply a basic understanding of figurative language to written text.
