  • Are relevant and deliver on New Mexico’s Content Standards—particularly in Math, Social Studies, and English/Language Arts
  • Include embedded assessments so teachers can easily track and report on student progress
  • Are fun, simple-to-run and quick so they fit into any teaching program

This training session will include a walkthrough of the $martPath platform as well as provide attendees with suggestions for how to best implement it in their classrooms.
