An authentic learning Model is a learning that allows students to explore, discuss, and establish meaningful concepts and relationships, involving real problems and projects relevant to learners.

  The authentic learning aspect of the CSLE+COVA approach maps closely to Newmann, & Wehlage five standards of authentic learning: Higher-order thinking – learners move beyond the regurgitation of facts to making meaningful connections that transform information and ideas through analysis, synthesis, design, and creation.   Authentic assessments can supplement the information obtained through formal assessment measures. They take place in the context of regular play or in other settings familiar to students. The key with all authentic experiences is that real-world application can enhance learning and evoke deep understanding. Performance-based tasks, rooted in. How to instill authentic learning opportunities in the literacy classroom. Given the need to meet myriad standardized assessments and curriculum requirements, educators may believe that allotting generous amounts of time and resources to large authentic learning projects is unrealistic for their classrooms. Authentic texts are defined as “written by members of a language and culture group for members of the same language and culture group” (Galloway, , p. , as cited in Glisan). Scaffolding refers to the support provided for learners to promote acquisition of skills and concepts.

The recent adoption of Common Core standards by many states and its inclusion on Race to the Top legislation offers teachers the opportunity to revisit their curriculum and develop authentic learning and assessment experiences that incorporate these standards and indicators. 'Wow! Burke has written a book for schools that really gets to the point! It is easy to use and rich in resources such as checklists, rubrics, and sample unit designs to help every principal be an effective learning leader and allow teachers to utilize an approach rich in best practices for balanced assessment' - Lee Adams, Principal, Parklane Elementary School, Atlanta, GA. Authentic learning is real life learning. It is a style of learning that encourages students to create a tangible, useful product to be shared with their world. Once an educator provides a motivational challenge, they nurture and provide the necessary criteria, planning, timelines, resources and support to accommodate student success.   Authentic performance: the ‘product’ reflects what a professional would produce. Transparent evaluation criteria: the learning outcomes drive the creation of the task. More broadly, performance assessment is part of an approach to teaching and learning that values application over rote memorization.
