"There are thousands and thousands of kids that are ready for college work when they're juniors and seniors in high school ... why do we treat 18-year olds like they're 13-year olds?" - ()

The idea that transfer needs to be taught is not a new one. I reiterate an old idea here because it is absolutely fundamental to effective education. - Eisner

The transfer of learning cannot be assumed; it needs to be taught. - Eisner

The kind of schools we need would recognize that the most important forms of learning are those that students know how to use outside of school, not just inside school. And the teachers in such schools would consistently try to help students see the connections between the two.

Eisner, Noddings, et al.... would still advocate for transfer. If you teach art, citizenship, music, or positive behavior and transfer does not occur, then you keep teaching for transfer.

If you don’t see transfer, I question if there is deeper understanding. Wiggins & McTighe, Bruner, Tyler, Anderson, English, Jacobs, Reeves, Ainsworth, DuFour, Glatthorn, Guskey, Erickson, and multiple educators have addressed Transfer as the goal in learning.

Why is the bill prohibiting schools from using corporal punishment on children with certain disabilities? It seems like corporal punishment should be prohibited on all children.

That’s a great point. If you see transfer, you see Understanding. We want transfer/application with SEL, skills, citizenship, reading, math, and other areas. Transfer can take place through habits, dispositions, skills, or application in a new unit.
