These open-ended challenges are the perfect way to introduce the mastery approach into your classroom.
What is the mastery learning model?
Mastery learning is where pupils are required to know, inside out, a learning goal before they move on to the next one. Teachers must teach a unit and then evaluate, through effective assessment, whether a student has achieved mastery of it. If they have, then the next steps are introduced, but if they haven’t, revision of misconceptions and areas of weakness must be tackled.
The model has been found to be advantageous, as many students go through school with gaps in their subject knowledge; the mastery process doesn’t allow for this. In addition, the high achieving learners are provided with a challenge – they can advance rapidly if they are quick to master something.
