Answer:

Anti-Clockwise

Explanation:

Well it kind of depends on the frame of reference you use or from the perspective from which you wish to look at the Earth.

Generally from above ( north ) or from the perspective of Polaris the North star,
The Earth and all the planets in our Solar system appear to spin anti-clockwise except Venus which spins Clockwise.

This anti-clockwise rotation of Earth makes Celestial objects like the Sun and the Stars appear as though they are Rising in the East and setting in the West. :)
