Criteria for Authentic Teaching CONSTRUCTION OF KNOWLEDGE Students construct or produce, rather than merely reproduce, meaning or knowledge by interpreting, evaluating, analyzing, synthesizing, or organizing information. They express this knowledge in written and oral discourse, by making and repairing things, and in performances for audiences.
Criteria for Authentic Teaching • DISCIPLINED INQUIRY • Students use an established knowledge base, strive for in-depth understanding for a major concept, problem, or issue pertinent to an academic or professional discipline, and express conclusions through elaborate communication.
Criteria for Authentic Teaching • VALUE BEYOND SCHOOL • Students’ achievements have practical impact apart from documenting the competence of the learner. They have meaning beyond being an indicator of success in school.
