Mastery Learning

  1. 1. Mastery Learning In Chemistry - RHS
  2. 2. Deb’s Objectives • Describe our use of “vodcasting” and explain Mastery Learning • Discuss successes and hurdles • Use Camtasia – make a vodcast • Provide time for discussion and questions
  3. 3. Jumping in the Deep End • Jing and “Jaws” • On my own…yikes! • Woodland Park, CO • Spring 2009 • This year
  4. 4. How does this work? • Packet • Packet is “order of worship” • Frequent Evaluations • 80% Mastery
  5. 5. Typical Day • Practice – (students check own WITH student mentor) • Demonstrations and Labs • Watching lecture (discouraged) • Reading – Reading Guides • Quizzes (graded WITH student) • Tests
  6. 6. Demonstrations • I perform demonstrations for 3 or 4 students, not for a whole class.
  7. 7. Labs • 2 or 3 students complete a lab together. • Once they have finished, they meet with me to discuss their understandings.
  8. 8. Lecture • This student got sick for an extended period. He did not miss a single lecture. He had all the resources he needed to get caught up.
  9. 9. Practice, Quizzes & Tests • Students practiced until they mastered. • There’s no reason to copy, because if you don’t understand, you don’t move on.
  10. 10. Benefits Differentiation Learning - Understanding Relationships Cheating doesn’t pay!
  11. 11. Hurdles • Access • Chaos • Time • Technology
  12. 12. AP Chemistry • Not self paced. • Students watch the lectures as homework. • In Class – More time for discussion – More time to answer questions – Time in class to PRACTICE – Labs, demos, etc.
  13. 13. If not mastery, then WHY? • Absences – Yours – Your Student’s • Difficult Concepts • Need for TIME – Class can be used for more than dispensing info • OTHERS (?)
  14. 14. What do you need? • Software – Good: Jing (free download) – Better: Smart Recorder (on your smartboard) – Best: Camtasia • Microphone
  15. 15. Propagation (Where do I put my video?) • Shared Folder – (Space) • Blog • Youtube.com • Blip.tv • State media server
  16. 16. Summary
