A traditional view of the student-teacher relationship is one in which teacher leads and student learns; however, modern theory promotes a more complementary role between the two, where teacher becomes a facilitator, and student takes ownership of knowledge. In the best of these relationships, the two also become collaborators. Such is the case with author and high school English teacher James Noll and his former student Grant Ervin. Their collaborative efforts will culminate over the next year with the release of Ervin’s video game, Mammoth Jockeys.
