Product Description

The 10th anniversary edition of Boys and Girls Learn Differently now includes new study guides for parents & teachers, new success data from schools in which the authors have worked, updated brain research information, updated notes and references, and changes in the original text to include new scientific findings. Advocating an understanding of learning based upon innate, biological differences between the sexes, chapters chart differences between genders, provide lists of what may be harder challenges for either sex, and examine the notion of bias against women in education. Inherently practical in tone, chapters delineate "the ultimate" preschool/K, elementary, middle, and high school classroom, paying attention to the structural innovations, discipline, character education, special education, and bonding/attachments that will help both boys and girls be as academically successful as possible. 380 pages, indexed, softcover.

Publisher's Description

A thoroughly revised edition of the classic resource for understanding gender differences in the classroom

In this profoundly significant book, author Michael Gurian has revised and updated his groundbreaking book that clearly demonstrated how the distinction in hard-wiring and socialized gender differences affects how boys and girls learn. Gurian presents a proven method to educate our children based on brain science, neurological development, and chemical and hormonal disparities. The innovations presented in this book were applied in the classroom and proven successful, with dramatic improvements in test scores, during a two-year study that Gurian and his colleagues conducted in six Missouri school districts.

  • Explores the inherent differences between the developmental neuroscience of boys and girls
  • Reveals how the brain learns
  • Explains when same sex classrooms are appropriate, and when they’re not

This edition includes new information on a wealth of topics including how to design the ultimate classroom for kids in elementary, secondary, middle, and high school.
