Motivation through Mastery Learning
Josten, Denice
NADE Digest, v2 n1 p50-55 Spr 2006
Every developmental education teacher would probably agree that motivation to complete assignments is one of the biggest obstacles to getting students to practice necessary skills. Short stories and other types of recreational reading might help motivate students, but they need to learn specific skills to help them cope with college textbook reading. An adaptation of mastery learning, a technique that uses multiple attempts for students to master goals at their own pace, was the key concept that allowed my students to achieve this goal.
