The Problem with ‘Authenticity’

“…I wish you wouldn’t keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly: you make one quite giddy.’

‘All right,’ said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.”

Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

 

An abstract noun has slid into our teaching vernacular over the past year or so, and it’s as slippery as it’s seductive: authenticity. And I have a problem with it.
