Transfer Goals

Transfer Goals highlight the effective uses of understanding, knowledge, and skill that we seek in the long run; i.e., what we want students to be able to do when they confront new challenges – both in and outside of school.

  • Long-term in nature (ideally across K-12)
  • Emphasis is on independent and contextualized performance
  • Help to establish purpose and relevance by answering common student questions such as: “Why should I learn this? “What can I do with this?”
