Beloit College in the USA publishes a “Mindset List” at the begining of every academic year that claims to look “at the cultural touchstones that have shaped the lives of todayâ€™s first-year students.” This year’s list may be found here. Even better, take a look at Chris Heard’s commentary on the list here.
The list is (naturally) very American.Â It would be interesting to compose a list that would fit the Canadian context, eh?Â Any takers? Suggestions?
