In these pages, Kelly Morgan presents a compelling case for implementing a mastery learning science classroom and then shows us how to do it. Using research-based student performance data, Morgan compiles impressive statistics that support her assertion that mastery learning results in improved student learning and motivation. Showing challenges as well as benefits, this text covers a step-by-step implementation from the traditional classroom to a mastery classroom, along with sample worksheets, checklists, a teacher grading grid, and additional resources. Beginning with the author's personal experience in Chapter 1, "Why Did I Completely Change My Classroom?" mastery learning is then defined, approached using research-based techniques, and viewed through practical applications that will answer every question a teacher, parent, or principal might have about this methodology. And for the details, a chapter called "How Mastery Learning Might Look" provides a flexible model for readers to use or modify to fit any grade level or content area.
