|The Language and Literacy Webinar Series||Deepening Our Understanding of Transfer of Learning
Literacy strategies acquired in language arts classrooms are not exclusive to language arts; yet students often fail to recognize how to transfer them to other learning situations. Teaching students how to recognize the transferability of skills and strategies is therefore part of the learning process, and it begins with structuring your unit plans. Join the ERWC community as we kick-off our 2022/23 “Language and Literacy” webinar series with Trevor Aleo—co-author of the book “Learning That Transfers: Designing Curriculum for a Changing World”—who will explore the real-world possibilities of teaching for transfer.
