Mastery Club

Thank you to Heather Renz, a 4th grade teacher in Oregon, for this great idea!
What is the Mastery Club?  How Do I Earn Points?  What Do I Do?  Tips and Suggestions:
Students should be challenged to learn as many new things as they can. For those students seeking an academic challenge, this is the place!

SCROLL DOWN TO GET STARTED!
 Once you are ready for me to "test" your knowledge, I will orally ask you questions which you will attempt to answer. You may not have any notes or assistance during this time. If you answer a question incorrectly, you will have to wait until the next day before trying again and gaining credit. You can earn from 1-99 points. How far will you get??? Simply decide which areas/questions you would like to study. Then research and study some more. Find me during recess or find me for The Mastery Club lunch meeting every other week (in the classroom-minimum of 3 questions prepared). Start with subjects you love. Take notes. Have a friend quiz you. Talk with your family...they can help you. I will be adding more questions and website resources shortly...but don't underestimate books. There was a time before the internet, you know!
