Global Issues Problem Solving

Global Issues Problem Solving

Global Issues Problem Solving (GIPS) is a competitive component of FPSPI which can be accomplished as a team of 4 or individual activity. Participants research a series of global topics and learn a six-step creative problem solving process. Problem solvers apply their topic and creative problem solving knowledge to address a charge presented in an imagined situation, termed Future Scene.

-Students research current and future trends of a specific topic
-Students analyze and apply the six-step problem solving process to a short story (future scene) related to the topic
-Students record their work in a booklet or online form
-Up to 5 topics are explored each year

FREELANCE EVALUATION:
-Specifically for new coaches and teams
-Booklets are submitted electronically for feedback only
-Evaluator comments provide coaching for teams

Trained evaluators score student work and return it with feedback including suggestions for improvement. The top scoring teams and individuals on the qualifying problem are invited to Affiliate FPS Competitions. The winners of each respective Affiliate FPS Competition advance to the FPSP International Conference in June.

Four divisions are offered: Junior (grades 4-6), Middle (grades 7-9), Senior (grades 10-12), and Adult.

  7. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance”
    between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!

    4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there
    is a way you can remove me from that service? Kudos!

  10. Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!

  11. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
