What Are Some Positive Outcomes For You
and Your Students As A Result of MRI?
A wealth of ideas about what to do before we
teach something
Good ideas for every content (vocabulary and preassessment)
As a result of MRI, I now have exciting new
strategies to help increase vocabulary knowledge
I liked how applicable the techniques we learned
were
I liked how sessions were tailored for each area.
