'This book is well written, well organized, includes legitimate scientific references, and is full of practical suggestions' - David Sousa, Educational Consultant, Author, How the Brain Learns, Third Edition

Differentiate your teaching style to address learning differences between girls and boys in the classroom!

As a classroom teacher, you might know that boys learn differently from girls. Now, this practical guide to teaching boys combines classic with cutting-edge research to show you why boys learn differently and, more importantly, how you can differentiate teaching strategies to help boys succeed in the classroom.

The author's qualitative and quantitative research shows the cognitive, sensory, physical, social, and emotional differences between genders. James draws from years of classroom experience to offer strategies that have been tested, refined, and used successfully in the field. This easy-to-use handbook provides helpful examples, case studies, and troubleshooting sections illustrating how to handle the concerns that can arise when teaching boys.

Teaching the Male Brain shows you how to:

o Recognize sociological and neurobiological foundations of cognitive gender differences as they relate to education

o Look critically at curricula and teaching practices, evaluate how well they work with boys, and uncover areas where changes can be made

o Develop educational approaches based on research and classroom practice to provide a climate responsive to the learning differences of both boys and girls

Learn to use this brain-based research to provide appropriate and positive learning experiences for the students in your classroom!

Teaching the Male Brain undefined Full description

Review:

"James' book provides the background science and sociology as a framework to explore what we know to be the case, that boys on the whole learn differently than girls. From the revealing vignettes that begin each chapter to the pedagogy of what works, this book should become the practical guide for all of us interested in helping boys succeed."

(Patrick F. Bassett, President 2006-04-26)

"A thorough and balanced approach to the research on boys' educational needs.  The author's knowledge of current research offers real world, everyday, practical suggestions for teachers who work with male students." (Charles M. Stillwell, Headmaster 2006-05-12)

"All children need just one caring educator in their lives. James is that champion for boys. Using research-based strategies, this book unlocks the mystery of how boys learn." (Wendy M. Pearre, Lower School Head (K-4) 2006-05-06)

“James focuses on naturalistic ways that many boys learn, describes a sampling of the extant research on gender differences in learning, demonstrates well a sensitivity to more diverse approaches to curriculum and instruction, and provides resources for teachers to make appropriate accommodations to all students.” (PsycCRITIQUES, April 2008, Vol. 53(17) 2008-06-12)
