3 - A Revised Mastery Learning Model to Be Used with Learning Disabled Gifted Students

Friday, Nov 10
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Benjamin Bloom proposed a model of mastery learning in 1968. A revision of this model could be used for gifted students with learning disabilities. LDG students could benefit from extra time and tasks broken into smaller steps while still being provided with an advance organizer of the “bigger picture” at the beginning of instruction. This presentation proposes a revised model of mastery learning that incorporates student goal setting and student reflection on progress, as well as enrichment for any objectives already mastered. This revised model incorporates best practices in gifted education but is a theoretical model at the present time.
