Review Highlights:

Mentoring Minds has produced a phenomenal tool for children to develop critical and creative thinking skills. The student work book is packed full with strategically placed content and questions. It includes both informational and literary text to read, discuss and analyze. The excerpts are well written and often underline vocabulary words that need to be learned during each specific unit.

The Teacher Guide and online component offer ample resources for teachers new to the series. Topics such as assessment, levels of comprehension, selected response questions, critical and creative thinking prompts, glossary, and standards correlation are introduced as well. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Teachers Guide as it is chocked full with valid information. Pedagogy and technology are essential elements in the classroom and this book offers solid information on both subjects. In particular, I enjoyed the Flexible Delivery section. The authors agree that students should have some choice in how they prefer to receive the content: online or on paper. I also like the detailed explanation on how to monitor each student's progress. Mentoring Minds has a resource rich website as well. If you were to come across any problems whether it be online or not, the user has immediate access to remedy the situation. As a longtime teacher and administrator I'd highly recommend Mentoring Minds to any school or district looking to develop critical and creative thinking in the classroom.
