Most teachers and parents are extremely busy and may overlook the quick and easy Authentic Experience for children.  One of the main focuses of this blog is a reminder about all of those wonderful Authentic Teaching moments out there.  Sometimes I’ll go into detail if I think the details are important, but usually I’ll try to just put out a quick note about anything that strikes me as a great Authentic Learning moment for kids.
My other focus will be Authentic Project Ideas and Resources for teachers.  Again, I will go into detail when the details are important, but often I’ll just relay ideas that come to me, or that I come across.
