Attention Veteran PD4’s / Affiliate Trainers

At eMINTS we are constantly striving to stay on the cutting edge of technology, the latest in educational research and instructional strategies, and providing our participants with a wealth of practical classroom applications.

We have been hard at work to make huge strides in our program offerings to ensure the eMINTS Comp. Program materials reflect our growth and embrace new technologies.

If it has been a while since you have taken a look at the eMINTS Comp. Program, I encourage you to look over the new, streamlined Comp. schedules and check out some of the exciting new sessions and topics.

- FY17 Yr 1 Schedule - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZkPGMSuMfrAgVwgfNzkCQo9ynaldBoKwN2pF4XVjsMQ/edit?usp=sharing
- FY17 Yr 2 Schedule - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CxFDOPdpW91o-hrHCf6pYR8jdgfLgt8JEt08mdzwjfk/edit?usp=sharing

Not looking for the full eMINTS Comprehensive Program experience? We can help!
Here at eMINTS we realize that not everyone can implement a full 2 year eMINTS Comprehensive Program. We can help to identify a package or “cluster” or supportive modules to help you meet your district's pd goals.

For more info. about the eMINTS National Center and the programs and offerings, check out https://emints.org or email us at emints-info@emints.org

Finish the School Year Strong!

It is hard to believe, but we are rapidly approaching the end of another school year! The spring is an exhausting time of year. State testing, spring sports, field trips, beautiful weather, and just knowing that summer break is merely days away can make this time of year challenging to keep a focus on learning. I challenge you to _Finish the School Year Strong! _

This time of year is a perfect opportunity for engaging students in inquiry-based lessons! This is an excellent time to try out a new problem-based or project-based learning activity. The upcoming weeks are great for challenging the kids to collaborate with other students in other schools on projects, Encouraging students to explore and learn a new technology, or even to try out a new teaching strategy.

Here are some additional resources to inspire end of the year activities that will engage students in high quality learning activities and help you end the year on a high note!
