Site Provides Free Reading and Math Tools for Teachers, Students
K-12 reading and math tutoring provider MINDsprinting has launched its online tutoring program as a free service. The service is designed for use either by educators as part of the K-12 curriculum or by students and parents as a supplement to classroom-based learning.
MINDsprinting.com provides individualized learning programs, diagnostic assessments, lesson assignments, a reading program, and two math programs, including one aligned to individual state standards.
For teachers, it also provides a dashboard for student and lesson management, including entering grades, finding answer keys, and generating reports. It also provides a feature called Fast Tracking, which lets teachers control the curriculum, limit the scope of study to specific skills, or adjust the difficulty level of the materials.
Enrollment is free. Further information about MINDsprinting can be found here.
