Future Quest Island
This site is currently being piloted and should be available for dissemination in 2018. The Future Quest website is universally designed and accessible to a wide range of users with and without disabilities. It features standards-based lesson plans highlighting specific college and career objectives and outcomes. Project personnel have partnered with middle school teachers to create a ‘Teacher Toolkit’ to implement Future Quest effectively in all middle school classrooms using college and career readiness & common core standards.
Future Quest is designed around national and state college and career readiness standards to assist all middle school students to prepare for high school and postsecondary education and employment after high school. Future Quest provides online activities that promote student self-discovery, self-advocacy, self-exploration, organization, and technology literacy skills. Project personnel from the Institute for Community Inclusion are working closely with middle school teachers, students, administrators and families in Massachussetts to embed these college and career readiness skills into the middle school curriculum.
The grant-funding period is December 1, 2012 through November 30, 2017.
