Making It: What Today's Kids Need for Tomorrow's World by Stephanie Malia Krauss
A practical guide to how today’s kids and the world are changing, and what you can do to help young people navigate and prepare for adulthood.
Economic crisis. Centuries-old racism. Deepening disparities. A global pandemic and other novel challenges. Today’s world feels increasingly volatile and unpredictable. Major disruptions and innovations are forcing us to live, learn, and work in new ways. And for today’s kids, these changes will shape and shift their childhoods and futures. By the time they reach adulthood, everything could look pretty different.
In Making It: What Today's Kids Need for Tomorrow's World, Stephanie Malia Krauss – an expert on education, economic well-being and youth development – goes beyond the question of what young people need to succeed in school, to ask what they need to be ready for life. You’ll join Stephanie as she considers the latest research, reflects on her parenting and professional life, and talks to educators, doctors, employers, and young people, always asking the same question: what do today’s young people really need to make it in life? 151 pages
