Authentic Learning Experiences
Through the Lens of a Busy Secondary Teacher
Connect with Community Members
Tough: teacher must initiate these connections - can be time consuming and you are at the mercy of community members calendars. Your initiative might be intriguing to them but its also secondary.
Work with Community Members
Tough: building into the curriculum the time and connection to the TEKS for this sort of work.
Provide to the Community
Tough: a product that actually contributes to society MUST have a high level of execution therefore more than likely it will require class time and home work time.
