Getting Started with Find Your Grind

We're excited you've decided to use the Find Your Grind Curriculum. Use these steps to get started!

Step 1:

Take the 5-Minute FYG Lifestyle Assessment

Engaging and instructive, the assessment is all about you: It delivers the top five Lifestyles and career videos related to you. Find out what best fits: Begin exploring different Lifestyles, and real professionals living them, along with practical lessons and advice they learned along their journey.

Your students will take this same assessment, so your ability to relate and connect with them based on your personal results will prove massively useful.

Explore the Curriculum

Now that you've taken the Lifestyle Assessment and set up your classroom, dig into the FYG Curriculum!

Units, Activities, and Lessons

Note: A 7th Unit is coming soon focusing on Finding a Financial Future

Within each Unit, you will see lessons of varying lengths. Each lesson has multiple activities within. With FYG you have the flexibility to pick and choose which units, activities, and lessons you would like to use. However, the activities that we believe are most critical for guiding a class through Find Your Grind have the ‘Recommended’ icon next to them. Many of these will connect to activities in future units.

LEVEL I and LEVEL II

You will notice that each activity is marked with Level I or Level II - Level I is designed for students ages 12-19. Level II is designed for students aged 16-19, and focuses on more complex ideas. You know your students best, so use what is best for them.

Step 4:

Get familiar with other parts of the Find Your Grind site

While you will assign everything to your students through the FYG Educator Dashboard, your students will do a lot of exploring on other parts of the FYG Site. Getting familiar with these can give you additional content to feature in your classroom and add additional discussion

Mentors

Students will learn from the people who’ve been there and are doing it. With over 100 videos and articles, they will be able to match their core habits, strengths & traits with like-minded mentors and browse videos on strategies, hacks, and practical lessons from our experts to elevate their game.

Careers

Along with Mentor videos, students can explore a variety of 21st century careers. With a focus on emerging trends in business, students will get a feel for the crucial skills needed to succeed in this career, stats around pay, information about the lifestyle and work environment, and what kind of outlook this career has in terms of automation risk, growth and competition.

If you still have questions, feel free to schedule a demo so we can make sure you and your students have everything they need.
