Real learning means the learner has the ability to apply learned skills to real-life contextual settings. But since `teaching to the test` is still the mandate in classrooms, Diane Ronis shows teachers how to use alternative assessment methods to move toward a more student-beneficial form of education. She leads readers through the complex issues of brain research, offers practical methods of implementation, outlines lesson plans using this approach, and demonstrates how to accurately assess students while maintaining rigorous standards and high-challenge levels.
"Real learning is deeply personal. It requires that learners participate meaningfully in the ideas and subjects that they explore as they shape and reshape what they know and want to know. Diane Ronis has written a book that brings coherence and intelligence to understanding how to assess such learning."
