[icon name="fa-send"] STANDARD 1: facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity

The font you choose to display text is every bit as important as the voice you use to speak if you want a reader to not only understand what they are reading, but also remember it as well.

Finding a workable font combination has never been easier thanks to Type Genius (typegenius.com), a website that helps you choose fonts that look good together. With Type Genius, simply go to their site, and click on “Select a Starter Font”. A menu will appear where you select your document’s main font. After selecting your base font, you are brought to a page that shows the recommended font or fonts.

This can be a great way to allow students a chance to add impact to their writing’s message, while not overwhelming them with too many choices. With Type Genius, there are two suggestions: a font for the title, and for the body of the text. It is very easy and simple to use.


Many of the fonts on Type Genius are available in Google Docs. If you do not have a font installed in Google Docs, installation is only a few clicks away. For a refresher, double check how to install fonts in Google Docs.
