I came out with this topic last year. What happened in your life- or in the world- the year this year's students were born? 1999-2000. -More than half my students never lived in the 1900s. -I was a senior in high school the year they were born. -The majority of my students were only 1 when September 11th occurred. That means, the majority of this year's second graders never lived in a time when the Twin Towers stood. -Christina Aguilera became popular in the music world. I remember the music that was popular around the time of prom- Her version of I Turn to You was on the radio a lot. -I went back in my journals and read what I did in high school some of the days these students were born. I know because I asked a boy out to the prom (he said no) the day one of my students was born. :lol: -Reality television debuted around that time- or at least Survivor did.
