We are a team of practitioners who believe education should help students understand how their world is organized and empower them to affect meaningful change.
Our ground-breaking approach, Learning That Transfers empowers teachers and curriculum designers alike to harness the critical concepts of traditional disciplines while building students’ capacity to navigate, interpret, and transfer their learning to solve novel and complex modern problems.
Through publications, workshops, coaching, and online courses, we partner with teachers on prioritizing curricular goals, establishing assessment targets, and planning curriculum and instruction that facilitates the transfer of learning to new and challenging situations.
All of our team leads can work flexibly with a number of ages and content areas, and we tailor our work for the unique needs of each school.
