- "Nearly all schools are taking steps toward rethinking curriculum and instruction to meet the rapid changes taking place in the world around us. They often do that without any sort of roadmap or a structure that allows them to meet their current standards-based requirements while staying nimble during these turbulent times. Amidst nearly constant change, teacher confusion and burnout ensues. This book will demonstrate that the right curricular foundation and structure will enable us to be more creative, fluid, and responsive to students, teachers, and current events. Teachers of the past knew exactly what children needed to know and be able to do. That is changing rapidly. How do we prepare students for a future that we can't quite see? And how do we do this without exhausting ourselves? This book will demonstrate how we can organize curriculum in a way that harnesses the key principles of the traditional disciplines while building students' capacity to navigate, interpret, and transfer their learning to keep pace with our rapidly changing world. Learning that Transfers will walk readers step-by-step through the curriculum design process of individual courses as well as the planning process for vertical and horizontal alignment"--
