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 "teach-to-the-test" 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.

The school library has changed dramatically. Today, it is a portal to a world of learning that includes traditional books, digital resources, and online environments. As the importance of information and communication technologies grows, teachers and teacher-librarians hold the key to creating powerful learning opportunities that help students function more effectively. This comprehensive guide discusses the changing responsibilities of classroom teachers and teacher-librarians in helping students become better readers, writers, and researchers. It offers suggestions for re-inventing the school library by offering a better and more current selection of resources, instilling students with the reading habit, and supporting them in these key areas: promoting reading for learning and pleasure; improving critical literacy skills when using information from many sources; encouraging research methods that respect copyright and lead to original work; designing information tasks to help students work effectively with data; developing better informational text structures that increase comprehension; encouraging the integration of emerging technologies and traditional resources. Literacy, Libraries, and Learning argues that using diverse learning resources can improve literacy achievement. It shows teachers and teacher-librarians how to turn their schools into first-rate learning environments and their students into lifelong learners.
