Title: Alternative and Authentic Assessments in the Elementary Classroom: One teacher's story
Body: Alternative and Authentic Assessments in the Elementary Classroom: One teacher's story Jeanette Borich, jborich@ankeny.k12.ia, AnkenyCommunity School District As an elementary Spanish and French teacher of more than 12 years, I have utilized the skills and strategies I learned about from several NFLRC institutes in innumerable ways. The Performance Assessment Institute in particular helped guide me in formulating creative ways to assess students despite the demanding schedule I work with in delivering instruction for our Ankeny FLEX Program. One significant result of my learning was a master's thesis about documentation of student learning from a thematic cultural unit about Yucatan, Mexico through dialogue journals. These journals were written by the students following their Spanish class lessons. I responded to the journals on an on-going basis. Although my master's work is now complete, I continue to use this alternative assessment tool as a way to monitor my instruction, document student learning of making Connections and learning about Culture, and provide an avenue of communication with parents about their child's Spanish classes.
