In Role Reversal, Mark Barnes offers an alternative. Most new teachers want to reform education and bring these ideas of intrinsic motivation and student centered learning into the classroom to create lifelong learners. Barnes has laid out a step-by-step instruction manual on how to do just that, by shifting the onus onto the students. This book takes the educational theories of Kohn, Dweck, and Deci and puts them to practical use, something my colleagues at USD have been thirsting for since taking that first Ed. Psych class.
I strongly recommend this book to teachers who are striving to create lifelong learners.
