The Minds of Boys

This is another book about boys by the prolific author Michael Gurian, written with his partner Kathy Stevens. It's a book that is helping to raise the veil about “male learning style" and how it’s NOT a match with current educational practices.

Some of the many costs that result from this inequity include lower grades, greater discipline problems, and higher dropout rates (to name a few). Remember, we are still functioning in an era where our boys are being seen as THE problem instead of the mismatch in educational processes. The authors explore current research on the differences between the male and the female brain that is at the core of the issue. It’s a book with great advice for parents and teachers on how to encourage learning for boys without disadvantaging girls in any way.

If you're a parent this book will give you some great discussion points for the next time you meet with your son's teachers and school principal.
