Teaching and Working With Generation Me
San Diego State University
This talk will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the data on how generations differ (based on a sample of 2 million young people). The generational changes include increases in self-esteem, narcissism, and high expectations and declines in mental health. In other words, today's students really are different. These changes necessitate new strategies for classroom management, interactive learning, and assessment.
