0 Reviews
This book examines, through case studies of elementary and secondary school classrooms, how five schools have developed "authentic," performance-based assessments of students learning, and how this work has influenced the teaching and learning experiences students encounter in school. This important and timely book reveals the changing dynamics of classroom life as it moves from more traditional pedagogy to one which asks students to master intellectual and practical skills that are eminently "transferable" to "real-life" social settings and workplaces.
