As a young teacher I like to think of myself as fairly up to date with the trends of today. I like to make sure that I read the same books, listen to the same music and watch the same movies as my students so that I can connect with and understand them better. To make sure that I was pretty much on target with what I thought was ‘cool’ I spent some time chatting to some teenagers about what they thought is cool. I’m pleased to say that I was pretty much on the money but did get some surprises. I also found that age certainly plays a huge role in how cool some things are.
Check out my Pinterest Page to see what the teenagers are calling ‘cool’ these days.
