PSD.23 – The Power of Introversion in the Classroom

It is likely that more than one-third of our students are introverted. According to Susan Cain, the author of the book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, introverts are dramatically undervalued: both inside and outside our classrooms. 

This session will provide background on the introversion-extraversion spectrum, information on the learning needs of introverts and extraverts, and opportunities for participants to discuss and share teaching practices for increasing inclusion of introverts in the classroom.  The session will strive to promote instructional philosophy and practice that better meets the learning needs of all students, including introverted students. 

The session is an invitation to educators to engage with Cain's Quiet Revolt, where contemplation is as valued as participation, where gregariousness is optional, and where introverts are invited to do what they do best.
