From the opening vignettes to the end-of-chapter exercises and focus questions, this book superbly presents sound, current, and relevant information' - Darrin D. Sorrells, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning, Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus University graduates seeking positions in schools today often belong to the generation known as Generation Y, or the Millennials, raised in a society saturated with technology and multicultural influences.

A wide range of case studies and extensive exercises help school leaders: - Identify Generation Y educators' learning, communication, and work styles - Recruit, interview, and hire candidates in support of stated school goals - Evaluate school culture and promote cross-generational teamwork - Communicate effectively with all staff members By harnessing the optimism and innovation of new teachers and valuing every generation's contributions, educational leaders can cultivate a work environment where all can thrive.

Recruiting and Retaining Generation Y Teachers Press Reviews

Ronald Rebore and Angela Walmsley provide a comprehensive description of how Generation Y developed, what they expect from the work environment (constant feedback, for example) and how to bridge the gap between the technology-savvy Generation Y teachers and administrators and the veteran Baby Boomer teachers and administrators. -- The School Administrator, April 2011 As more and more veteran educators retire, it is critical that younger teachers entering the field succeed! Administrators, human resource professionals, and classroom teachers will have a better understanding of how to relate to this group. Essential information on such topics as job postings, interview structuring, and selecting the best candidate for the position is helpful for anyone hiring, training, and supervising Generation Y teachers. From the opening vignettes to the end-of-chapter exercises and focus questions, Rebore and Walmsley superbly present sound, current, and relevant information that is informative and thought-provoking. -- Darrin D. Sorrells, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning
