Authentic Assessment: Teaching and Assessing Facts, Skills, and Ideas in the Grammar School​

Led by: Carrie Eben, Owner of Classical Eben Education Consulting

This seminar is designed to equip both new and seasoned classical grammar schoolteachers (and above) with tools for teaching and assessing in the classroom. Using Mortimer Adler’s Three Columns of Knowledge (Facts, Ideas, and Skills) as an overarching guide, this course will give classical yet practical forms for teaching and assessing in these three areas. Teachers will practice forms for narration, mimesis, and discussion with the purpose of leading students toward skill mastery and virtue embodiment.
