"Man is a tool-making animal."

- Benjamin Franklin

Franklin’s Toolkit is an outreach project of Atlanta’s Ben Franklin Academy faculty, students, and Trustees. We are especially grateful to the generous funding from the Betty and Davis Fitzgerald Foundation and the Mary Ryan and Henry G. Kuhrt Foundation that has made this outreach possible.

Ben Franklin’s Toolkit is divided into seven sections that focus on tools for student success and a forum, which will facilitate conversation with us and others about strategies and best practices. There are learning links, books and materials available to you.

We want Franklin’s Toolkit to be a lively website, full of action and interest. Please share your ideas and provide feedback as we continue to enlarge this interactive part of our website.

"It is culture that provides the tools for organizing and understanding our worlds in communicable ways."
