A Chance To Breathe...
Here are the 5 Things Your Teens Wish You Understood About Them

by Tessa Adams | October 19, 2020

I get the privilege of working with teens in an English classroom. The majority of them are excellent, future-focused individuals, and they are incredibly enjoyable. They teach me about their world, and I try to give them a little bit of insight into literature and writing. It’s this give-and-take that makes the classroom a beautiful place.

Recently, my students and I were discussing what teens wish their parents knew. This was dangerous territory, but they agreed to let me see the world from their perspective, and it was quite refreshing. They would really like us to know five things.

In her talk, Ali Carr-Chellman pinpoints three reasons boys are tuning out of school in droves, and lays out her bold plan to re-engage them: bringing their culture into the classroom, with new rules that let boys be boys, and video games that teach as well as entertain.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxPSU, an independent event. TED's editors chose to feature it for you.
