The link between teaching for mastery and Catholic school ethos

Gerbils150 11 November 2018 19:28

I am about to start my Masters dissertation and want to base it around teaching for mastery and the Catholic school ethos.  My thinking is that the mastery approach of no child left behind and whole class teaching dovetails with the role of Catholic schools being to provide a service to the poor - in this scenario the academically poor who may struggle to grasp mathematical concepts or be put into a low ability group in non-mastery settings.

Is anyone aware of any literature or research which could help to support this line of enquiry?

I would be really interested to know what you find out here.  There do seem to be a lot of Catholic schools and CE schools engaging in teaching for mastery and the Maths Hub network.  It is unclear as to why their level of participation is so high.  I'd be grateful if you would keep me informed.  My email address is gwen.tresidder@ncetm.org.uk.

Have a look at the writings of De La Salle. Historic, but, relevant.
