CHANGEd: What if we empowered the introverts before trying to change them? 60-60-60 #8

“Susie is a fabulous student! However, she is so quiet. I wish she would speak up more in class.” How many times have I read, heard, written, and said such. “Educare,” though, the root of education, means to draw out. It’s 2012! Technology makes it even more possible to empower introverts to share their thinking in “alternatively audible” ways. Polling, quick writing, Google docs, backchanneling, etc. What if we scaffolded, not “scolded?” What if we empowered the introverts before trying to change them?

[83 words. Again, I embrace that failure. I will work to improve and succeed more in tomorrow’s post! Thanks for reading.]
