Good Roads and Potholes: Teaching Foresight to Younger Children

by Timothy C. Mack

ABSTRACT

“Good Roads and Potholes” collects some of the lessons learned by the World Future Society (WFS) in exploring the concept of foresight with groups of children of elementary and secondary school age. The article covers past presentations, tactics and techniques and catalogues a range of appropriately successful outcomes. Groups range from Pre-K summer programs, to Cub Scouts, to national science and engineering competitions, as well as model programs in the environmental area. In addition, it captures a range of visions of the future developed by some of the groups of children with whom WFS has worked.
