With classes starting at the UofA this week, I thought it would be fun to post this link to the Mindset List - the list that comes out each year to tell college teachers about the worldview of their freshmen students.
Some of my favorites are: they have never seen an airplane "ticket." There has always been football in Jacksonville but not in Los Angeles. Women have always piloted warplanes and space shuttles. History has always had its own channel. They watch television everywhere but a television. Mr Burns has replaced JR Ewing as the most shot-at man on television.
