1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This handbook is a practical guide containing background reading and classroom exercises on future studies for elementary and secondary teachers. The book begins with a rationale for future-oriented education and a discussion of the objectives of a futuristics curriculum. Part ii, which comprises the major portion of the document, contains 22 classroom exercises on ways of thinking about the future, trends, forecasting and prediction, alternatives and imagination, the use of models, and a systems approach to futures studies. Part iii presents two longer exercises aimed primarily at senior high school students that deal with (1) global survival and (2) society and foresight. Each exercise has been successfully used or readily adapted by teachers. Students are involved in classroom discussion, making maps, field trips, interpreting graphs, conducting polls, story completion, designing a model of communities, problem solving, simulations, and research projects. Materials needed, questions to stimulate student discussion, and teaching procedures are described for all exercises. Also included are appendices which contain a brief history of the study of the future; a scenario for a role-play exercise for use in inservice teacher workshops; a guide to books, magazines, audiovisuals, and simulation games of special interest; a bibliography; and a glossary of basic terms.
