July 2018


Set the foundation for a successful school year by powering-up your professional development this summer. 


Creating Text-Dependent Questions for the Classroom

Students are required at every grade level to gather evidence, gain knowledge and demonstrate insight from what they read. MPT’s online English Language Arts modules will help you craft questions that get students to think more deeply about what they are learning.


Modeling With Mathematics in the Classroom

Help your students make important connections between school and real-world scenarios. In MPT’s interactive modules, organized by grade band, educators build understanding of strategies that encourage students to use modeling and develop a plan for implementing modeling in the mathematics classroom. 


Building Foundations in Early Learning  

Create meaningful early learning experiences that lead children on a path to thrive and succeed. MPT’s interactive learning module helps early educators build a healthy foundation for children in their care by providing developmental, social and educational support.
