Teachers
The research team is grateful to partner with teachers who support the development and execution of Missions with Monty. Without teachers, Missions with Monty would not be a reality.

Role

Teachers play a crucial role in the success of Missions with Monty; they provide the research team with the knowledge and expertise that they dedicate to their classrooms every day. 

 

Teachers are actively involved in providing feedback on game-development, passage, and assessment components. Some important ways teachers have collaborated with the team include:

  • piloting portions of Missions with Monty in the classroom with their students,

  • supporting the development and finalization of specialized learning resources found in the game, and

  • reviewing and approving a targeted vocabulary list that was integrated into the passages.
