The topic is "The Future." The guest is Catlin Gable teacher Mark Lawton, who presented the findings of his year-long foray into the field of future studies and its implications for education on Tuesday, February 24, at 7 p.m. in the Cabell Center on the school campus, 8825 SW Barnes Rd. 

Lawton believes that in today's fast-paced world, students must learn critical thinking skills, and that they must apply those skills in forecasting and preparing for the dramatic changes that are coming. "If you create plausible scenarios for the future, your organization will be ready to adapt, no matter what happens." says Lawton. "And if you are forward thinking, you can shape the future you want instead of just responding to what happens."
