Maintaining Authenticity in an Ever-Changing Reality

Maintaining Authenticity in an Ever-Changing Reality

Having taught the first eight of my sixteen years in a traditional classroom and my last eight in a project-based learning (PBL) program, I am often asked to describe the differences between the two styles. For me, the answer seems to come down to one word: authenticity. So, with this being my first blog ever, I feel the need to start there. I want to examine a few aspects of what it means to be authentic in teaching and how in these two teaching styles I viewed authenticity differently.
