1.3.3. Tom Guskey Mastery Learning Exemplary Whether a lesson works depends on whether students are able to do what you are teaching Every kid should have one successful learning experience in 6 hours Implications 1: Assessments must be sources of information for students and teachers 2: Assessments must be followed by high quality corrective instruction 3: Students must be given a second chance to show improvement 4: Re-Take Re-Take 3-4 sentence summary of concept Correctives done in class to start - transition to at home lesson - lesson - lesson - formative - corrective (no review) - small group enrichments (outside of curriculum, rewarding) Spiralling assessment questions Practices CCC Learning Sequence Unit 1 Grading Variance
