Tom Stokes, Breton Sheridan, and Dylan Baird wrote the article “A Student’s Guide to Taking Back the Classroom”. In it, they argue that that in modern classrooms, students have very little autonomy because classrooms are teacher run. Teacher-run classrooms stifle student creativity and interest in learning. Stokes, Sheridan and Baird conducted an experiment in which they compared groups with leaders and groups without leaders. The groups without leaders tended to have more discussion, while the groups with leaders tended to have less discussion but were more efficient. Stokes, Sheridan and Baird as a solution, advocated student empowerment along with teacher guidance.
