The Competencies Toolkit is a print version of the Tools for Thought online collection.

Nurture students' ability to think, communicate, and act using lessons that teach the range of tools needed to develop the competencies needed for 21st century learning.

Thank you so much for your Tools for Thought lessons. In my five years of teaching, it's the best resource I've ever come across. I'm thrilled and excited to use all of your activities. The students are completely engaged in what they're learning and I have noticed huge improvements in the quality of their work.

—Grade 8 Teacher, Ontario

I particularly enjoy the critical thinking challenges that invite high level thinking for different types of learners - many of these activities, such as the Tools for Thought lessons, can be used for our high needs secondary students who may not always be given the opportunity to think critically. Very valuable!
