Designing Instructional Strategies which Facilitate Learning for Mastery.
Anderson, Lorin W.; Jones, Beau Fly
The "state of the craft" of instruction within the context of the mastery learning model is discussed. Little has been said in the past about specific instructional strategies that are applicable to particular instructional units or objectives, or to the daily classroom life of teachers. This paper is organized into six major sections. The first section outlines the general instructional conditions and procedures described in books and articles dealing with mastery learning. The second section discusses two aspects of the initial group-based instruction: teaching to objectives and the use of appropriate teaching methods or presentations. The third section focuses on the importance of porper sequencing of instructional activities and units. The fourth section presents information concerning corrective instruction. The fifth section briefly details the types of enrichment activities used in existing mastery learning programs. Finally, the sixth section presents ideas concerning the role of classroom management in complementing a mastery learning instructional program. Many of the instructional strategies described are those which research indicates are related to increased student involvement in learning and/or increased student achievement. (RL)
