I 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?
Read the short article and let me know what you think. Post comments! I do read them. You may even be featured in a follow-up post about this topic.
