Author Paul Barnwell's 2014 article in The Atlantic chronicles the nature of many of our students today in the "silent generation." These cards require critical thinking and reflection, and may be used to help students start talking and getting to know one another, or they may be used as self-reflective journal prompts. Coming soon for three different levels of students: those in elementary grades, in junior and senior high schools, and in college. Check back August 1st, just in time for the 2018-2019 school year.
