Mastery Learning in Reading and the Control of Teachers and Students.
Shannon, Patrick
Language Arts, v61 n5 p484-93 Sep 1984
Disusses three assertions regarding mastery learning in reading programs: (1) mastery learning is adopted to "legitimize" reading programs to the public; (2) schools cannot provide unlimited time for learning to read; and (3) thus, teachers are reduced to managers of materials and, with students, surrender control of their literacy.
