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

This practical guide to teaching boys combines classic and cutting-edge research to show you why males learn differently and, more important, how you can differentiate teaching strategies to help them succeed in the classroom.

The author’s qualitative and quantitative research presents 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:

  • Recognize sociological and neurobiological foundations of cognitive gender differences as they relate to education
  • Look critically at curricula and teaching practices, evaluate how well they work with boys, and uncover areas where changes can be made
  • 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!
