"In this book," writes Heidi Mills, "you'll learn how to plan for inquiry in a way that promotes literacy throughout the day and across the content areas." With Learning for Real, you'll find a rich array of resources for truly integrating a balanced literacy approach into every corner of the curriculum. "We all know how exhilarating it is to learn something new," writes Heidi, "to develop expertise around a passion." She and her colleagues invite students into that experience, while developing five habits necessary for the content learning inside and outside of the classroom: carefully observing the world by using the tools and strategies of a discipline posing questions and investigating problems from numerous perspectives drawing information and evidence from primary and secondary sources, both nonfiction and narrative using the language of inquiry while reflecting on and sharing new learning effectively with others employing reflection and self-evaluation to grow and change. To help you adapt instruction to your curricular and standards-based goals, Heidi includes planning guidelines, classroom-tested units of study, and from-the-field video clips of exemplar inquiry-driven teaching. "Provide students with experiences that help them grow into strategic readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and social scientists," writes Heidi Mills. "Devote as much time to teaching children how to learn as what to learn." Link literacy and content with Learning for Real and discover that when students know how to learn, they exceed our expectations, and show what's possible in genuine inquiry-based classrooms.

In Teaching for Transfer: A Guide for Designing Learning With Real-World Application, author Michael McDowell provides K-12 teachers with a road map for reconfiguring classroom instruction to ensure that students learn to expertly apply their knowledge and skills to different contexts, or to engage in transfer-level work. McDowell outlines the three levels of complexity in learning-(1) surface, (2) deep, and (3) transfer-and explains that while the foundational levels of surface and deep are essential and allow students to understand and relate ideas, transfer is key, as it involves the interdisciplinary problem solving students need to practice to become creative, well-rounded citizens who can meet and overcome unexpected challenges. Offering ample research, concrete strategies, grade-level examples, and end-of-chapter next steps and reflection questions, McDowell demonstrates the importance of transfer-level learning and the means by which readers can support this skill development in their students.
