Offering tools to teachers and parents to help create good character in children.   
In July of 2007, the authors of the Peddlesfoots curriculum attended training at Harvard Graduate School of Education, becoming part of Project Zero - a research project that promotes reflective learning, using critical and creative thinking skills.   This specialized training gave the Peddlesfoots curriculum a specific pedagogical focus - one that encompasses and encourages intellectual character in all its many facets.  

New instructional strategies and concepts, such as visible/artful thinking and critical thinking routines that are relevant to the creation of powerful learning environments, were examined and integrated with the Peddlesfoots curriculum. The curriculum and accompanying training has become part of a larger effort to transform educational practice across the continuum in Saginaw, Michigan.
