There are many barriers that hinder teachers from educating themselves on effective teaching and learning methods they can use in the classroom. Along with shortness of time and energy, the inaccessibility of reliable information and the time it takes to sift through all of the extensive amount of information all pose as problems. For this project, information and research on two methods of teaching and learning: mastery and spiral learning will be collected and summarized and the advantages and disadvantages of each will be presented in order to help educate teachers and educators on effective methods of teaching.
