The What
A toolkit is a metaphor to describe the skills, demeanors, and resources students must leverage to become self-directed deeper learners. Some may already embody these traits and need to reflect on when to use them; others may need to further develop them. This strategy asks students to consider the tools to which they have access so when a challenge presents itself they know how to move forward in their learning.

The Why
Students must reflect on their current skill sets and recognize what additional tools they may need. The knowledge gained from this strategy gives them a better chance of solving their own problems and developing ownership over their learning.
