Generation What?

At a cluster meeting for middle school teachers tonight, there was talk not just about the typical characteristics of students approaching and in early adolescence but that every generation has new permutations on these characteristics.

Personally, I think we are yet to discover exactly what Generation Z will be like and whether teaching in its current form will exist when they hit the middle school zone.
