Publisher's Summary

Leading today's students often feels like being in a new country. The population in this new land has different attitudes (many entitled and narcissistic) and speaks a different language (emojis and social media). Attention spans are six to eight seconds. They multi-task on five screens. They often possess multiple personas on social media platforms. Understanding and connecting with this generation is often times frustrating and draining.

The old maps that helped adults navigate students through adolescence are now producing graduates who move back home, are afraid to take healthy risks, and are unwilling to start at the bottom of a career path.

We're in new territory.

We need new strategies on how to navigate new land...to march off our old maps and create new ones.

That is what this book is all about. From decades of research and hands-on experience, Dr. Tim Elmore and Andrew McPeak collate their conclusions into one resource.

In Marching off the Map, they share practical, research-based solutions that help adults:

Inspire students to own their education and their future

  • Lead students from an attitude of apathy to one of passion through metacognition
  • Enable students to push back from the constant digital distractions and practice mindfulness
  • Raise kids who make healthy progress, both emotionally and intellectually, through their teenage years
  • Give students the tools to handle the complexities of an ever-changing world
  • Understand and practically apply the latest research on Generation Z
  • Leverage what is cultural to instill in teens the wisdom and advice you know they need to succeed in any stage of life

Great but difficult to listen to

Would you listen to Marching off the Map again? Why?

Maybe. The information is great and worth a second listen, but having to listen to Tim read the book and his constant use of the phrase "quote/closed quote" was nauseating. We know you are are putting a word into quotes to make a comparison to something else, but you don't have to save "quote/closed quote" around every word. This really became irritating in a long list of 5 or 6 words that were individually quoted. He said "quote...word...closed quote" six times in a row. Just read the book. If the listener can't figure out that the word is used as an analogy for something, then the book is not for them to begin with.

A must for those who encounter our youth!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Highly recommend this to anyone with children in their lives! I am an educator and this title has given me much to consider regarding the students I deal with each and every day. Live is different for them and Elmore provides some thought provoking reasons why!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Marching off the Map?

Giving me the specific differences between the youth of today and the youth of yesterday makes so much sense! Thank you!

Have you listened to any of Dr. Tim Elmore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I subscribe to his podcast and have seen/read his work for the last 20 years. He does good work!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really...more because I don't have that kind of time available :(

Any additional comments?

This is a great resource to listen to over and over to remind us of what the next generation is dealing with and capable of. I have shared parts of it with fellow educators as needed...this is a tremendous resource!

Fantastic compass guiding current generations!

This has been one of the most realistic, well founded and inspirational books on how to deal, guide and work with current generations to achieve greater results and help them become better people, leaders and prepare them for the kind of world they are living in and for what will come.
I love the positive yet realistic approach to how to speak to the younger generations to get the best out of them and us!

Terrible

The author seems allergic to evidence. He makes huge assertions and then never backs them up. When he does talk about a focus group he once held it is used to present overly specific comments without the depth to understand the context of the question. He returns consistently to supposed family that is clearly made up without saying so. To steal a line from Minority Report, one never finds an orgy of evidence on accident. Yet if Dr. Elmore is to be believed, he finds one with the family where each child perfectly makes his point?
Dr. Elmore is also a huge fan of the straw man argument. Only once did he faithfully present the other side of a point.
Finally, near the end book gets disturbing as he first celebrates the Native Americans in Oklahoma being forcefully removed from their land and then celebrates ISIS for pages on end.
