What did everyone think of the Horace articles? I must say I found the methods very convincing. They reminded me of what we saw at SWW. I think when implementing these methods of authentic assessment, vigorous involvement of teachers and administrators is essential. It is certainly more work for students and teachers when these individualized assessments are applied. The benefits of such practices are worth the work, though. Does anyone else wish that they could have investigated personal interests in high school? How about feeling like you have produced something worthwhile and real? I rarely felt like my work had a larger purpose in the world, besides turning it in to the teacher. This was the case in my undergraduate career as well. I say, lets get these kids feeling like their work is meaningful! Who’s with me?
