The dumbest thing someone can do is stereotype a group of people so that they can easily be dismissed. The under 30 crowd has a lot of things to offer the over 30 crowd... and vice versa. Bauerlein calls us "The Dumbest Generation" because simply calling us "different than those that have come before them" wouldn't sell a lot of books.

Well, Jeff, you sort of proved Bauerlein's point by misspelling the word "alone" in your non-comment and, perhaps most importantly, not checking for errors. Are you typing with your thumbs, too? ;-)

Checking for errors sounds like a job for older, much smarter people than myself.

Good catch :)

It seems Professor Bauerlein is indeed trying to sell books. Why does anyone use inflammatory language like that (can you say Ann Coulter?). As for generalizing about a group of people, that's been going on forever, actualized in racism, sexism, ageism, etc., it doesn't mean we have to buy it as something credible (again I bring up Ann Coulter). I think we all have a piece of the puzzle. Uninformed though some may be, that's why they come to us. The fact is, part of our job is to be a teacher.
