Easily Add SEL and Character Education to What You Already Teach

We've created and curated a collection of resources that give you the freedom and flexibility to easily add a FutureFit focus to your classroom. Whether you're looking for a complete project-based lesson or worksheets, videos, assessments and activities that integrate SEL and character education, you can find and identify them throughout the TeacherVision site by looking for the FutureFit icons.  

Inspire Your Students to be Changemakers

We know that teaching is aspirational, that you want to make a difference every day, and that you don't get out of bed every morning to preside over the administration of a pile of "drill and kill" practice tests. We also know that a teacher's job is never done, and that finding the time to inspire your students in ways that extend beyond their academic lessons can be challenging. FutureFit helps your aspirations become inspirations. Adding lessons in effective communication, reflective practice, initiative, global awareness, leadership, and accountability to your teaching is easy using our curated FutureFit resources. The time you'll save looking for the perfect blend of social-emotional and academic learning can now be used to accomplish the things you DO get out of bed for in the morning: inspiring and enabling your students to be capable, well-rounded, inquisitive and productive. 

The right resources, right now

FutureFit resources are specially curated and easily discoverable throughout TeacherVision. Look for the FutureFit icons as you search or browse our resource pages, explore the FutureFit Projects section, and add FutureFit lessons, worksheets, videos and other resources directly to your Favorites. We're continually adding new resources to the FutureFit collection.
