Non-Formal Basic Design: Imagining Possible Futures.
Moseley, James L.
Designed for individualized instruction, this unit contains objectives, materials needed, and assignments for teaching about the future on the secondary level. The unit is designed to take different formats and directions and is applicable to any subject area. Objectives and assignments are both listed in brief numerical order. Some of the 17 objectives are that students will discuss techniques for forecasting the future, generate a scenario for the future, discuss diversified types of information systems, and show concern for the study of the future. Included in the 21 assignments are generating definitions of the future, discussing how the year 2000 will differ from the present, simulating "School of the Future," reading future-oriented books and periodicals, viewing films and videotapes, and joining the World Future Society. Student worksheets, a checklist for monitoring student progress, suggestions for followup activities, and a self-appraisal report are provided. (KC)
