Common Sense Is… (Kumashiro)

In the introductory chapter Kumashiro defines common sense as a practice and/or perspective that gives individuals familiarity, comfort, and a sense of normalcy. Kumashiro also talks about the differences in “common sense”, it differs depending on the traditions that society holds. For example, what was common sense in Nepal is different than what was common sense in the United States. It is important to pay attention to common sense because like I said before, different society’s common sense may not be the same. What may seem harmless may be irrelevant, inappropriate, or an oppressive belief.
