Incorporating Fun Activities Within Mastery Learning Units.
Mann, Sylvia B.; Fridell, Ronald
"Fun activities," such as games, puzzles, discussions, debates, drama, and art, are used in every unit of the Chicago Mastery Learning Reading/Learning Strategies program. Activities include (1) ungraded optional activities, (2) enrichment activities, and (3) subject-related applications. These materials aid in comprehension, memory, and transfer; provide a break from routine; and provide enrichment materials that go beyond the literal and inferential aspects of the mastery objectives into critical and reflective areas for students who are at or above grade level. (Sample activities are included.) (DF)
