About the Author:

Marsha Lynne Rhea is a Senior Futurist at the Institute for Alternative Futures.

Review:

In this guide for school leaders, administrators, teachers, and academics, Rhea advocates for schools to empower people to create their own preferred futures. She sets out a framework for bringing a future focus to education through the four dimensions of anticipatory learning: foresight, identity, direction setting, and innovation. (Reference and Research Book News)

Indeed, school leaders can and should use this book to guide them as they initiate 'anticipatory learning' discussions and think through multiple future scenarios. Doing so can ultimately empower and engage today's learners to change American education as we know it. Intelligent, innovative, inspiring, Rhea builds the case for staying in step with tomorrow, a nice breather from the status quo. (Maya Horton, The Council on Foundations)
