ProScope Case Study:


Professor MacGregor Kniseley, Professor at Rhode Island College, conducted a case study with elementary teachers representing all grade levels, Kindergarten through Grade 5. After a three-hour training, participants piloted ProScopes in their classrooms. They provided suggestions for using ProScopes in elementary classrooms and feedback about the benefits, challenges, and impact of training and materials. View the case study report.
