Koonlaba: What do you think about how Common Core has affected introverted students?

11164757_10206497932583916_3464456028614437679_nI read an interesting article titled Does Common Core Hurt Introverted Students? by Alison DeNisco in District Administration magazine online. This article claims that the Common Core standards-driven push for project-based learning and collaboration primarily accommodates extroverts and unfairly punishes introverts.

What do you think about how Common Core has affected introverted students? Do you agree or disagree? Why?

  1. My children, who could be classified as introverts, like being about to interact with peers for more than the 15 mins at lunch, so it’s a good thing. Plus, the younger ones are much better writers than the oldest, who went through school without out much common core and subsequently didn’t hardly anything from 3rd-10th grade.
