Futures Information Interchange Newsletters present practical teaching methods and learning activities for introducing future studies into the classroom. Although the newsletter is directed toward primary and secondary school teachers, it is intended to be of value to educators at the preschool and university levels also. Lead articles present a rationale for teaching about the future, a summary of our global situation, and a humane orientation toward the problems of man's relationship to technology. Additional articles contain future-oriented curriculum suggestions, a series of energy education exercises, a parable about ideals, a transporation planning game, and a multidimensional context model for alternative futures. Activities are presented which involve students in planning for the future through futuristics games, discussion, letter writing campaigns, and social and political action. A practical outline for future-oriented course development for teachers to follow is also included. (Author/DB)
