• The Masterminds program at Twin Cities International Elementary School is an intervention program based on multiple tiers of student supports (MTSS) that focus on giving students more time to master learning targets and state standards that are most challenging for them.  This is a time (approximately 30 minutes, 4x/week) where students are either working in small intervention groups and/or working in the homeroom classroom doing a variety of tasks including small group or individual instruction with the teacher or educational assistant, partner practice, or on-line individual instruction/practice using web-based programs such as IXL, RAZ-Kids, Moby Max, and Reading Eggs.
