Case Study: Futurizing the K-12 Teaching Practice

by Kay E. Strong & Peter C. Bishop

ABSTRACT

Futurizing the K-12 Teaching Practice is an ongoing workshop, co-sponsored by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT) and the Houston Independent School District (HISD), and taught by a team of both university-based futures faculty and public school educators teaching gifted/talented and future problem solving students. Its participants receive an introduction to Futures Inquiry–a thematic interdisciplinary method for teaching higher order thinking skills–by considering futures principles, techniques and issues. This raises the level of complexity experienced by students in the classroom. Steps for successfully engaging students in futures-based thinking and activities heighten the practical applicability of futurizing the classroom teaching practice.
