How to teach a young introvert

A conversation with Susan Cain on the future of classroom education. Susan Cain sticks up for the introverts of the world. In the U.S., where one third to one half the population identifies as introverts, that means sticking up for a lot of people. Some of them might be data engineers overwhelmed by the noise of an open-floor-plan office. Others might be lawyers turning 30, whose friends shame them for not wanting a big birthday bash. Cain remembers a childhood full of moments when she was urged by teachers and peers to be more outgoing and social — when that simply wasn’t in her nature. We gave Cain a call to talk about how schools, both right now and far off in the future, could better care for the needs of introverted students.

What kind of response did you get to the part of your TED Talk about the education system and how it isn’t optimized for introverts? “What an extroverted act it is in the first place to go to school. Interesting. Susan Cain: The power of introverts. Reaching All High School Students: A Multi-Tiered Approach. Tanya: The ways in which a multi-tiered system of support is put to work in a middle school or a high school program looks a little different than elementary.

Reaching All High School Students: A Multi-Tiered Approach

Ashley: There's not always as much of a delineation between tier two and tier three once you hit secondary, because the students are taking so many different classes and content really becomes number one. Tanya: Unlike elementary, where you can pull a small group out, that's not always so in high school, because if you pull a small group out, they might be missing content. Lynda: So for some students, it's as simple as providing time and opportunity to go meet with the teacher after school for additional help. In some courses, it means our learning community leaders who have expertise in special education, in school psychology, in reading education, are pushing into some courses where there is a cohort of students that needs a little additional support.

Yeah, so you see how he's starting here and then he goes there. Teacher: Yes. 092. Studies Illustrate Plight of Introverted Students.

What is introversion? Henjum (1982) sees introverts as belonging to two distinct groups: Group A: Self-sufficient, confident, hardworking, with firm goals, self-actualizing, reserved, preferring activities that involve inner experience and introspection; and Group B: Shy, timid, withdrawn with low self-concept, lacking in communication skills, demonstrating fear of people, dread of doing things in front of others, who prefer being left alone.

Unable to tell until I get the full text, if this is an article or study. I found it on APA Psychnet, but it was published in Education, so I'm thinking it is a journal article instead of a study. However, the abstract sounds like it cuts to the heart of what I'd like my presentation to be: learning about our introverted or highly reactive students, so we have less extroverted expectations from them. It seems very relevant, so I will read this. – jenadkins

PsycNET - Display Record.

This study is reliable; a large number of students were studied to determine differences in preferred amount/levels of stimuli between intro/extroverted students. It includes empirical data and analysis and was included in the course directions and appears completely relevant to my presentation. I will definitely read it fully. – jenadkins

PsycNET - Display Record.

This study is reliable; it includes empirical data and analysis and was published by the Journal of Educational Psychology. It was conducted primarily by four people from two universities. It was included in the course directions (YAY!) and appears completely relevant to my presentation. I will definitely read it fully. – jenadkins
