ThinkCentral is a resource for elementary school teachers that provides a range of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt?s materials. The site offers planning, assessment and instruction resources for various subjects through different media and is accessed through a single username and password.
Each instructor using ThinkCentral has his own username and password, which allows him to access the materials purchased from ThinkCentral by his school system. Materials include but are not limited to: e-books, teacher guides, assessments and reports. Preparation tools are also made available through ThinkCentral, such as state-specific resources, lesson-planning help and professional development courses.
Upon registering for ThinkCentral, the teacher must select his state, district and school. He must be issued an account by the school administrator before registering. ThinkCentral's site requires that pop-ups be allowed for full use of the site.
ThinkCentral is able to be used on a variety of software platforms, including the latest versions of Google Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, as of 2015. Internet Explorer may be used on computers with Windows 7 but is no longer supported on Windows XP. Students may also make a ThinkCentral account so that they may access resources their teacher has provided for them, check past scores and view assignments they need to compete.
