Contributor(s): Von Frank, Valerie.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Thousand Oaks Corwin 2014Description: xi, 144 p.ISBN: 9781452218823.Subject(s): Communication in management | Intergenerational relations | Mentoring in business | Diversity in the workplace | Supervision of employeesDDC classification: 658.3008 Summary: You might expect the occasional age-related misunderstanding to find its way into the classroom—after all, if today’s kids aren’t exactly from another planet, they’re definitely from another generation. At least you and your colleagues are all on the same page…right? Not necessarily. In some schools, as many as four generations work side by side, and that means countless chances for crossed wires, miscommunication, and perhaps even mistrust. Authors Jennifer Abrams and Valerie von Frank are attuned to these generational differences. In this book, based on Abrams’ popular workshop, the authors demonstrate how educators can look past their own generational filters to reap the benefits of seeing through a new lens.
