Senario Writing

The Scenario Writing component encourages students to develop and submit futuristic scenarios - word pictures of the future. Scenario writing is especially intriguing for students who enjoy creative writing.

 

As Edward Cornish of the World Future Society explains: "A scenario may sound exotic...It is simply a series of events that we imagine happening in the future. Our everyday thinking is filled with little ventures into the mysterious world of tomorrow, or next week, or next year. And the ventures are scenarios." As information is gathered and integrated into scenarios, students personally experience the impact of applying what they learn to their respective futures. For purposes of Future Problem Solving, a scenario is a story that might take place as a logical outgrowth of actions or events. It is a prediction of the future written as though the future were the present. An NC FPS scenario is a story in which one possible outcome of the future is developed through character(s) and plot. 

 

In Scenario Writing, students create their own vision of the future. Selecting one of the current topics, students are encouraged to use the FPS problem-solving model to examine challenges, select a problem area or conflict, and produce a resolution or action plan.
