"With Authentic Learning Experiences, Dayna Laur has outlined a realistic model for creating dynamic classrooms that will prepare students with the skills, critical thinking and problem solving that will prepare them for their lives. Use this book to experiment and connect with other teachers to transform your classrooms."
―Holly Jobe, President of ISTE
"This book pushes you beyond the traditional mode of teaching to one that truly engages students in relevant, authentic life experiences. The examples of Authentic Learning Experiences are inspiring. As a peer coach in my district, I wanted to share the content and examples with many of my colleagues from various levels and contents."
―Erica Ringelspaugh, Adams-Friendship High School, WI
"With the advent of the Common Core Standards, educators are constantly looking for valuable resources for the classroom that create authentic learning experiences. This resource provides the background information, explanation, and justification for those authentic learning experiences and additionally addresses the Common Core aspect. The examples provided are outstanding. I appreciated the chapter regarding the "Outside Audience," particularly because it seems to be an area that is overlooked. I also appreciate the information regarding research! My district struggles with authentic research opportunities and this resource provides justification and sound ideas."
―Kim Wagner, Traughber Jr. High, IL
This book provides a wealth of information; interesting, thought-provoking ideas; and a challenge to increase the rigor of our instruction. This book is appropriate for all classroom teachers who seek to improve student engagement, inspire learners, and move toward real-world solutions to our difficult problems.
--Kathy Highfield and Laura Pardo, Michigan Reading Journal
