Remembering to be Real: Not planning but finding Authentic Teaching
A Currere Reflection
In this standard-based education, are we losing authentic teaching? Are we teaching pre-service educators to teach from prescription and not alloting times for key reflection and to recognize teaching that needs to veer away from a lesson plan to find authentic learning for students. Using the Currere method, the author reflects on the value of critical reflection and knowing when to teach when you don't plan it.
