If you don’t understand basic multiplication, then there’s no way that you will understand trigonometry. When students don’t understand a foundational concept in a particular subject, they will struggle with the advanced concepts. Many educators rely on a system that requires students to advance in material even if they don’t master it. Mastery learning takes into account the different learning styles and levels of all your students and helps you create lessons that benefit them all. 
After taking this 3-module course you will walk away with an understanding of:
  • What mastery learning is
  • Why mastery learning is important
  • The Grid method
  • The best practices for mastery learning
  • Formative assessments
  • And more

ODE Teacher competency: a, b, c, f, g

  1. Frank – DEL VALLE ISD (verified owner)

    I would have preferred course been given in-person.

  2. Tonia – Centerburg Local (verified owner)

    There are excellent ideas for implementation.

  3. James – RIPLEY-UNION-LEWIS-HUNTINGTON LOCAL (verified owner)

    interviewers ask questions to learn more about you and to find out things other than what may be on your application or resume. Interviewers may ask about your course selection to learn more about your personality, interests and goals. This question may help them gauge your interest in or passion for a particular subject or field.

  4. Karen – Centerburg Local (verified owner)

    This is a very “real” presentation that gives solid rationale, tools, and instruction in how and why to use the grid method.

  5. Ramona – ECTOR COUNTY ISD (verified owner)

    This course explains a different approach to teaching. This allows students to take control of their learning and have a growth mindset.

    Very informative and useful in the classroom

  8. Brittany – PROSPER ISD (verified owner)


  9. Rebecca – EASTERN LOCAL (verified owner)

    This was beneficial to helping me learn how to let go of the reigns by teaching in the front of the classroom, only to have most them tune me out anyway, and to free myself us to assist as they need to reach higher level learning for all.

  10. Irma – UNITED ISD (verified owner)

    I was very informative…. I learned a lot

  11. Amanda – SAN FELIPE-DEL RIO CISD (verified owner)

    It was not targeted to GT students, and failed to qualify as a “GT Education Course”.

  23. TJ – Jefferson Area Local Schools (verified owner)

    It was a good class, but as educators I wish we focus more on students that struggle than students that are gifted.

    Great and informative.

  39. Maricela – UNITED ISD (verified owner)

    This course was absolutely amazing. It does not only explains what is mastery learning but provides a tangible implementation. Most of us already are doing some of it when we differentiate but this method is easy and gives results. This method is bit qualitative and quantitative. Presenter is great.

    Very interesting, especially if you worry about pacing.

    Very informative
