Connie Warren - Content Specialist with Curriculum Associates - Deepening Student Engagement and Critical Thinking. This is episode 444 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Connie Warren, is a Content Specialist with Curriculum Associates. Recently, Curriculum Associates acquired Mentoring Minds.

Connie creates training and content for educators, administrators, and families with a focus on critical thinking, social-emotional learning, educator development, and quality instruction with ThinkUp!. 

Previously, Connie served in the classroom and district-level offices, as well as various education consultant roles. 

Connie has her masters degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Texas at Tyler.

In 2021, Curriculum Associates acquired Mentoring Minds. Through this partnership, the ThinkUp! curriculum and the 9 Traits of Critical Thinking joined the i-Ready Learning suite. These research-based programs equip educators with resources that help all students access grade-level learning. ThinkUp! and the 9 Traits of Critical Thinking continue to support a school-wide thinking culture and deepen student engagement with standards-aligned content.

When the episode was recorded the acquisition had not been completed. So you will hear us talk about Mentoring Minds. Please note that the programs we discuss are now part of Curriculum Associates.
