Generations X and Y are struggling to understand the Baby Boomer generation in much the way the Boomers tried to understand their parents and grandparents. The secret lies within the past pop-culture. This video of children in the 1950s is used as the setting for Bucky Covington’s "A Different World".
Use this video in diversity or generation workshops to spur discussion. Have participants to compare their experiences in growing up. Some questions to ask include:
“What were your views of playing outside?”
“How were you disciplined by your parents?”
“What types of disappointments did you experience growing up?”
Adding videos will invoke the use of another sensory point to make your presentation more interesting and memorable.
