Young Minds Inspired

Educators of a variety of disciplines and levels may want to check out Young Minds Inspired (YMI). Describing itself as "the nation's leading provider of free educational outreach programs for learners of all ages," YMI offers a wide range of lesson plans and classroom activities. Most YMI resources are created with elementary, middle, or high school students in mind, but it also provides material appropriate for preschool or college students. Visitors can browse lesson plans by broad categories such as language arts, STEM skills, or outside the classroom, and each resource thumbnail is labeled to indicate its intended audience. Many YMI resources, which are "produced in partnership with corporations, associations, and other organizations," are designed to accompany popular culture films, Broadway musicals, and novels, while others serve as educational PSAs on topics like energy conservation and the importance of vaccinations. YMI programs are developed by curriculum experts and reviewed by active teachers to ensure academic quality and educational value. Launched in 1978, YMI is led by Dr. Dominic Kinsley as its Editor in Chief and by Donald J. Lay as its Director of Outreach.
