OUR PROGRAM COMPONENTS

 

There are a variety of options for implementing Future Problem Solving.  

Look below for brief descriptions.  Click on the pictures for detailed information.

Global Issues Problem Solving
(GIPS)

GLOBAL ISSUES
PROBLEM SOLVING
(GIPS)

In Global Issues Problem Solving, students study futuristic topics.  For each topic, they are presented with a "Future Scene" which describes a situation in the future dealing with the topic. This provides the impetus for their problem solving as they work through a six-step problem solving process.

 SCENARIO 

WRITING 

Scenario Writing is for those who enjoy creative writing. Students write 1500-word stories based on one of the year's topics.

COMMUNITY PROBLEM SOLVING 
(CmPS)

In Community Problem Solving, students identify a real problem in their community and work through the six-step process to come up with solutions, which they actually implement.  A community can be a neighborhood, school, town, city, state, or county.

 
NONCOMPETITIVE
OPTIONS

Action-Based Problem Solving is for students in primary grades or those who are just starting out.  The Future Scenes and process are simplified.  Our Short Booklet is another noncompetitive option, where students apply the six-step process, but write fewer challenges and solutions.

SCENARIO

PERFORMANCE

Scenario Performance is designed to develop and sustain the oral tradition of storytelling.  This component is ideally suited to students who show thinking abillities in different ways -- particularly those whose cultural heritage and/or learning styles prefer oral communication.
