Tyler, Texas (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Mentoring Minds announced that two of its resources, developed by Texas educators for Texas schools, are winners of 2014 Teachers' Choice Awards for the Classroom. Motivation Writing and Differentiated Instruction Guide are among the best classroom-tested, teacher-recommended products available today, according to the expert educator-judges at Learning Magazine.
Each year, a nationwide panel of educator-judges names the standouts in books, classroom supplies, educational games, websites and more. Mentoring Minds’ products underwent two rounds of rigorous judging for quality, instructional value, ease of use and innovation; the products with the top scores were selected to win.
“Our resources for Texas schools are developed by Texas educators who have a deep understanding of our state standards and assessments,” said Robert Bush, CEO of Mentoring Minds. “We are incredibly proud to have our programs ranked among the top in the nation by the Teachers’ Choice Awards’ educator-judges.”
Developed specifically for Texas fourth-grade classrooms, Motivation Writing is a comprehensive, rigorous and relevant supplemental writing resource developed by Texas educators to integrate critical and creative thinking as well as focused reinforcement into writing instruction. Motivation Writing addresses all readiness and supporting standards of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and is designed to develop and improve students’ composition, revision and editing skills. With a unique emphasis on critical and creative thinking, Motivation Writing empowers students to extend and apply learning beyond the classroom.
One of Mentoring Minds’ numerous tools to support classroom learning, the Differentiated Instruction Guide, helps teachers identify and meet the needs of the diverse learners. The guide provides background knowledge, techniques, tools and strategies for differentiated instruction.
