"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 five sections that focus on tools for student success.  There are learning links, books and materials available to you.  This material represents what we see as best practices of education and mastery learning.

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

– Jerome Bruner
