This episode describes what conditions
are needed for knowledge and skills learned in one context
to be retrieved and applied to a novel situation, and
how different teaching strategies can increase the possibilities
for transfer. The episode features Julie Helber, a fourth
grade teacher at Paddock Elementary School, Milan, Michigan,
and Donald Johnson, a seventh and eighth grade teacher
at Columbus Middle School, Detroit, Michigan. Lee S.
Shulman, President of the Carnegie Foundation for the
Advancement of Teaching, provides expert commentary.
