Mentoring Minds, the national publisher of critical thinking-focused educational resources for K–12, today announced that its print and online hybrid curriculum, Total Motivation, is the winner of a 2015 “Tech & Learning” magazine Award of Excellence. Total Motivation was named one of the “Best New Products” of the year in the prestigious ed tech awards program.

“At Mentoring Minds, our commitment is to providing teachers with high-quality instructional resources that help students build critical thinking skills,” said Robert Bush, CEO Mentoring Minds. “It is an honor to have our flagship product, Total Motivation, earn recognition from the educator judges in this highly competitive award program.”

Total Motivation is a standards-aligned, supplemental curriculum that features an innovative print-and-online solution. This distinctive approach includes the same award-winning content in both print and online formats, ensuring that teachers and students have access to high-quality content to help students master rigorous standards and effectively build individual critical-thinking skills. Motivation Online, the online component of Total Motivation, enables real-time progress monitoring for more effective instruction, and each practice activity is coded to a standard and a level of thinking, freeing teachers to spend more time teaching.

“Once again this year, the Tech & Learning judges examined hundreds of entries to select the winners of 2015’s Awards of Excellence. This wasn’t just checking off spec sheets and surfing other people's reviews. Each product was handled and scored individually. Not an easy task,” said Kevin Hogan, editorial director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. “Mentoring Minds can be proud that Total Motivation was selected as a winner by this prestigious team of judges.”
