There are many models of schooling; some work, some don't. Mastery is an entire framework for education with over 100 years of pedigree. Its impact has been researched for decades, with many of the world's greatest education minds testing and refining the approach. It's one of the models that actually works.
In this book, Mark McCourt examines the history of a teaching for mastery approach, demonstrating why a model that was first proposed in the 1910s - and now supported by cognitive science - has the incredible impact on both pupil attainment and attitudes to learning that it has had all around the world over many decades.
