Today Mentoring Minds announced that four of its resources are winners of 2015 Teachers’ Choice Awards for the Classroom. Developed by Texas educators for Texas schools, Motivation Reading, English Language Learners Strategies Guide, Response to Intervention Strategies Flip Chart, and Assessments: Strategies, Techniques, and Tools 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 classrooms, Motivation Reading is a comprehensive, rigorous and relevant supplemental reading resource developed by Texas educators.
