Both introverted and extroverted children benefit from a robust learning experience. Yet too often, introverts – who comprise nearly half of every classroom – are asked to act like their extroverted peers, who are more likely to enjoy group work, crowded cafeterias, and classroom discussions.
In an enlightening and interactive workshop, Heidi Kasevich, PhD, shows us that introverted children possess gifts that enhance the culture of any classroom. We will also explore the power of dynamic duos and mixed teams, as well as the communication differences that so often keep introverts and extroverts from bringing out the best in each other. The ultimate goal? To empower introverts and extroverts alike to work together to unleash the creative potential of everyone at the table.
