If you are a teacher whose school/district is implementing Tools of the Mind and partnering with Tools for Year 1 professional development, you are eligible to elect to earn three (3) graduate credits. Tools of the Mind has partnered with Cambridge College to offer the following courses:  

  • Tools of the Mind Core Theory & Practice Pre-Kindergarten Year I
  • Tools of the Mind Core Theory & Practice Kindergarten Year I

These courses leverage the professional learning gained through the workshop series that spans the school year and adds to it. Working in tandem with what you will be learning and doing as part of your school/district’s Tools of the Mind implementation, you will do professional analysis and reflection about various aspects of theory behind and that practice that reflects this Vygotskian-based curriculum, and develop a portfolio showcasing the growth of a young child across the year. 

These graduate credit options may also help educators fulfill state certification requirements for licensure. Please check with your state to learn more about their requirements.


  • Cost: $390
  • Registration deadline for the 2020-2021 school year is September 9, 2020.
