Mastery Learning in Science & Math: Success for Every Student

Close learning respect for all students...prevent students from sliding by...enable struggling students to catch up even when they lack the foundation pieces. Mastery learning enables each student to move at his or her own pace and ensures that every student masters every concept.

This full-day workshop will show teachers how to implement mastery learning in math and science classrooms. Topics will include:

  • what mastery learning is and is not
  • why it makes such a difference
  • which aspects have the most impact on student learning
  • how to educate students, parents, and administrators about mastery learning
  • what issues to expect and how to prepare for them
  • how to structure requirements and grading
  • which technology tools can be used to make it work
  • what is effective day-to-day classroom management
Teachers will begin to develop the structure for their own mastery classroom throughout the day.
