Last week was the debut of Teen Talk Tuesday, and I just wanted to share how much the participating students enjoyed it. They were so excited to see your questions and seemed eager to impart their knowledge of all things teen.
The kids were able to answer most of the questions posted on the blog last week, but we saved two questions for this week:
1. Popular clothing brands
The kids listed the following labels and stores as being trendy: Nike Jordan shoes, Polo, American Eagle, Hollister, Toms shoes, and Abercrombie. For less expensive labels, they named Rue 21 and Forever 21. (One young lady said she didn't care which store her clothes came from, and left her mother to choose her styles for her.)
2. E-books vs Print books
Students with e-readers at our school unanimously preferred reading print books over e-books. However, they emphasized that they loved Kindles for the other features.
Writers, what would you like to ask the teens this week? Please post your burning question as a comment, and I'll pass it along to my students who are sure to know the answer!!
