FPSP General Description
The Future Problem Solving Program (FPSP) teaches students how to think, not what to think. This is accomplished by teaching critical and creative thinking skills, and problem solving and decision making skills via a six step process. Developing these skills help students to improve their academic and social achievement. After learning the six step problem solving process, students are able to participate in the Community Problem Solving component. This component encourages students to become agents of change in their communities. Students will explore challenges in the community, determine the underlying problem, brainstorm possible solutions, develop criteria to determine the best solution, develop an action plan, and carry the action plan out. These civic projects allow students to become a part of the solution in their communities.
