Students Think We’re More Out of Touch Than We Really Are

In class the other day, I used the expression (BFF). Then I said, “You didn’t think I knew that, did you?” And they all laughed. (If you don’t know what it means, just ask your students—and no, it’s not vulgar) The next day, I used the expression “Whatever,” the way the student generation uses it. Again, they laughed.

 The age gap that the students perceive between themselves and us is wider that we might think. Whatever.
