Abstract: Research has shown that it is uncommon for students to transfer what they learn about science to their other classes, let alone their everyday lives. However, a set of recent studies provides empirical evidence that the expansive framing of learning contexts can foster transfer. In this paper, we further our investigations of the idea that transfer is promoted by the instructional practice of framing learning contexts expansively. We do so by offering a micro- genetic analysis of a relatively surprising case of transfer by a student in a high school biology class. In particular, we use her case to evaluate five recently proposed explanations for exactly how expansive framing may foster transfer, and close with additional hypotheses for how transfer may have been supported with this particular student.
