Locations that use Tools of the Mind Curriculum
The Tools of the Mind Curriculum is being used in a wide range of settings, from large urban school districts to small rural Head Start programs. These programs serve diverse student populations in public, charter, and private schools. Tools can be found in classrooms serving special education students, dual language learners, and accelerated learners. Some schools begin using the Tools curriculum with three-years-olds, and continue using it until their students enter first grade. Other programs choose to utilize Tools only with preschoolers and/or kindergarteners.
Please note that the sites listed on our website have completed various levels of Tools training. For example, some large school districts have committed to training each and every teacher in the Tools of the Mind curriculum, while others have trained only a portion of their staff. Also, some sites may have experienced staff turnover since they worked directly with Tools of the Mind trainers. We recommend that parents or administrators bear these variations in mind if they plan to request a visit to a Tools of the Mind classroom in a particular school, district, or program. If you do plan to visit a Tools of the Mind site, we recommend using this basic observation form to guide your visit and gauge the program’s quality.
If you want to learn more about a specific district or program that is implementing Tools or is currently in training, or if you are interested in implementing the Tools of the Mind curriculum in your school or program please contact us.
