Futuristics for Today's Student: A Course Description.
Aanestad, Naedine
The humanities course described in this paper encourages high school students to examine alternatives for the future and to make decisions on the basis of the most desirable outcomes. Classroom instructional materials include films, sound and slide sets, film strips, tape recorders, a record player, and a television. Students participate in small-group discussions, brainstorming, simulation games, and individual and/or small-group projects concerned with the rapid pace of change in their personal lives and in the world around them. Speakers from the local college and the community, field trips, and other departments within the school are also employed in order to spark the awareness of change. Specific materials, ranging from Alvin Toffler's "Future Shock" to Andy Warhol's "Coke Bottles," are used to convey perspectives of technological and social change. (KS)
