I have written about the different generations, summarizing the key differences in the table below by way of understanding better who we teach so we can figure out how to teach them. The Pew Center just came out with an important new report titled "The Millennials: Confident. Connected. Open to Change." Everyone should check it out; as one of the largest–some say THE largest–generations in our nation's history, they will profoundly influence our society, institutions, and instruction in the years to come. I will read the entire report in the week ahead, eager to incorporate any new ideas into the table below, which I made only about six months ago.
