Standards and Mastery Learning free pdf 'The book makes a distinct contribution to the field. The integration of standards and mastery learning is important if standards, once established, are to be achieved by large numbers of students. I think it is timely, well organized, contains real-life examples, and is well written' - Lorin Anderson, Carolina Distinguished Professor of Education, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina There is a strong connection between the current standards movement and the philosophy of mastery learning. Unfortunately, few schools have adopted the tenets of mastery learning, a major lapse, because mastery learning is supported by a large body of research--a body of research that is lacking for standards. By studying the lessons of mastery learning--both good and bad--educators will have the tools to successfully implement standards in the classroom and school.
