Common Sense

Common Sense

Kumashiro defines common sense as what society defines important or right and should continue being viewed as that. Common sense is something that should be given attention because not all the times “common sense” is the right thing to do. Like in the book, Kumashiro talk about working in Nepal and how the students expected to memorize notes, do homework and then take the test. However as we know that just memorizing work doesn’t mean that you actually understand. Kumashiro also thought that his way was the proper way of learning because it was common sense to him. Where you grow up and how you grow up will define what you think is common sense.
