Are you preparing your students for your past or their future?

Daniel Pink speaks about the fact that we need to prepare kids for their future, not our past. That got me thinking. What skills or ideas do we teach that fall under the category of preparing kids for our past? Here are a few. What do you think? What would you add?

1. Cursive Writing

2. Learning map skills with paper maps!!

3. Learning historical names and dates that can be found online in seconds

4. Dictionary skills with a traditional dictionary
