Futurism: Framework for Composition.
Keroack, Elizabeth Carros; Marquis, Leah Keating
Noting that the study of the future has been neglected within the language arts framework, this paper proposes a curriculum unit that uses such study as a vehicle to develop composition skills. The paper provides the following information: the general objectives of the unit; evaluation methods; general humanistic themes to be studied; materials; and outlines of eight lessons covering seven change agents of the future: demographic shifts, ecological shifts, cultural diffusion, social innovation, technological innovation, cultural/value shifts, and information/idea shifts.
