Link to February 19 Wisconsin State Journal article, "Popular Beloit Mindset List to be expanded as book".
Excerpt: The creators of the popular Beloit College Mindset List are expanding the concept into a book tracing how different generations view the world.
The annual Mindset List is the brainchild of Beloit College officials Ron Nief and Tom McBride. Every August they release a list of items reminding professors that the incoming class sees the world differently than they do.
For example, this year's freshmen wouldn't understand the reference, "Here's Johnny," or share their parents' visceral reaction to Watergate.
Here are some other library-related examples. (Retiring Guy finds the List to be a great teaching tool.)
Anyone else remember this late 1970s/early 1980s workshop staple?
