Abstract

The purpose of this project was to research authentic instruction and assessment. After analyzing the results of a literature review, a unit on the United States Constitution was rewritten to include these two concepts. Current literature confirms that students are better prepared for life if teachers use techniques that bring the subject to life for the student. In order for teachers to successfully use authentic instruction, the focus needs to be on the assessment component.

This paper includes discussion of the different types of authentic assessment and the different ways to perform the assessments. The advantages and disadvantages of each type of assessment are outlined for the reader. As a result of the review of the literature and the writing of a unit, the conclusion drawn is that authentic instruction and assessment can and should be incorporated in all subject areas.
