Are We Teaching Our Children to Think about the Future?
Torrance, E. Paul; And Others
Gifted Child Today (GCT), v12 n6 p48-50 Nov-Dec 1989
This summary of a 1978 article presents four approaches to preparing gifted children's thinking for the future, such as showing clear relationships between their learning and potential future careers and learning about future work options. A 1989 update then emphasizes such needs as computer and technological literacy, expanded mentor programs, and teaching of invention skills. (PB)
