Description

The adage that practice, or rather the right kind of practice, makes perfect is quite apparent in this new definitive book by J. Ronald Gentile and James P. Lalley, describing the concept of mastery learning in the classroom. Educators can instruct all students, regardless of their individual scholastic aptitudes, using the principles and philosophies of mastery learning. The key to this process is reinforcing and expanding initial learning through additional practice and higher-level exercises, enabling all students to reach high standards.

Other key elements of this practical resource include:

  • Usable ideas for educators and administrators on how to implement mastery learning in math, science, social studies, language arts, and other subject areas
  • How to achieve mastery learning from a theoretical perspective
  • How to assess effectiveness in achieving high standards
  • Research evidence, details, features, and examples of good programs and lessons
