Mastery Learning and Its Implications for Gifted Education Programs.
Perryman, Lynne
A review of the literature regarding mastery learning suggests that mastery learning can benefit gifted education programs in two ways. First, the process provides information to determine if gifted students have mastered essential elements for a particular subject area, a necessary but often overlooked step before proceeding to enrichment. Second, mastery learning provides alternatives (such as student-directed learning, discovery learning, and peer tutoring) for gifted students once mastery has occurred. Teachers of gifted students must be prepared to extend instruction beyond the mastery level. Mastery learning provides the initial component of a gifted education program which can be built upon for extended and enriched learning. (Author/CB)
