    1. I think talent is the ab<font face=”inherit”>ility to understand something in shorter time. However hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard as ultimately to </font>understand<font face=”inherit”> something better </font>doesn’t<font face=”inherit”> make you a master.</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>2.I believe mastery is being able to become fluent in a topic.</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>3.Messi,Floyd Mayweather,Lewis hamilton</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>4.If u research these athletes’s past you will find that they started at a young age and even though they had higher understanding they </font>developed<font face=”inherit”> </font>their<font face=”inherit”> craft</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>5.Through hard work and perseverance they became Masters</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>6. Yes</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>7.Determination,Patience,Humility</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>8.Yes i believe that i can become a master in any subject if i work my hardest.</font>

    <font face=”inherit”>9.It will give you more opportunities and positive experiences.</font>

    1)I think everyone has different natural talents which means everyone succeeds in different things.

    2)The mastery pedagogy works on the principle that all learners, with effort, will meet expectations. It works on the premise that great teaching, based on formative assessment, particularly great questioning, is key. Precise assessment, teaching that closes any gaps, thinking about ability differently are all part of the mastery pedagogy- website-focus-education.

    3)Bill Gates ,Paul Allen ,Charles Babbage

    4)I think they are masters because they wanted to get a good job.

    5)They listen in school.

    6)I think who ever wants to can become a master.

    7)Time ,Patience, Hope.

    8)I don’t believe i can be a mater in a subject because that’s not what I want to do. 🙂

    9)You become succeful.

    1. I think that 50% of people’s success is down to natural talent because I think that you have to learn and practise your talent to maintain and build your skill further.
    2. In my opinion the word ‘mastery’ means to have a prodigious skill and have a deep understanding about the subject.
    3. Three people that are masters are: Lewis Hamilton, Bill Gates, Muggsy Bogues.
    4. I picked Lewis Hamilton because he performs at a master class level consistently with almost no mistakes. I picked Bill Gates because he created the best software company that took the world by storm as they made personal computers to the general public. I picked Muggsy Bogues as he is one of the shortest NBA players and can still perform amazingly versus NBA superstars.
    5. They all became superstars as they put all their effort into learning the subject and mastering it. Muggsy Bogues and Lewis Hamilton perfected their mistakes making them even better.
    6. Yes, anyone can become a master if they take their time learning new techniques and strategies and perfecting their subject and always learning about it.
    7. The three things that you need to master a subject are: Knowledge, Humility and Determination.
    8. Yes, I think that I can be a master in any subject if I keep being determined and working my hours off to master it.
    9. One positive thing about mastering a skill is being able to have opportunities to be successful in life.
