Which is more correct to say: in todays' classes or in today's classes? Can we consider that today represents the days that we live in general, so it might be considered as plural, and add the apostrophe after the s and not before?

Thanks in advance

  • If the classes literally only today, this one 24-hour period, it's singular: today's classes. If you're talking more abstractly, as in "kids these days", it suppose it might be defensible to use the plural: todays' kids. Though that still seems odd at first blush. Safer to go with the singular. – Dan Bron Apr 11 '15 at 14:19

today's

Even if you use the word today to mean nowadays, it is still singular. You cen prove it by doing the following mental exercise:

Today's TV programs are horrible.

The TV programs of today are horrible.

The TV programs of todays are horrible.
