The MPRES Toolkit and supporting Professional Development were developed by the MPRES project leaders and teacher/trainers, in coordination with project partners, with web development and administration services provided by Red Mountain Communications. The Toolkit was adapted from work by Dr. John Graves, Montana State University Core Education Faculty member and MPRES project leader.
The MPRES project draws heavily from the following references:
