Boys and girls learn differently. The male learning style is driven both by socialization and by the way the male brain grows and develops. Boys crave certain elements of teaching and learning.  When these elements are lacking, it can lead to disengagement, learning problems and challenging behaviors–as you know all too well.

The more you understand about how nature, nurture and culture shape boys’ learning, the more effective you will be as an educator of boys.

Join Michael Gurian for a 2-hour webinar on practical strategies and techniques for modifying your classroom and practices to fit boys’ specific learning needs.  This is not about creating a whole new curriculum.  This is about working with your existing structures and pedagogy to help boys learn and achieve. Michael’s webinars are interactive, humorous, insightful, practical and include stunning brain scans.

School, parent and community collaboration is crucial for boys and this webinar also will look at ways to get parents and other community members involved in teaching and guiding boys.

Webinar Topics

  • Brain-based research on how boys and girls learn

    Just finished viewing the Male Brain in Your Classroom: Ten Essential Strategies for Teaching Boys webinar which our school had bought. Outstanding. The best 2 hours on an educational matter I’ve ever taken and I’m 61 years old.

    Michael Gurian is always engaging and a plethora of knowledge. I will use the strategies about the brain at rest and the hormone surges to help my faculty understand where their students are coming from and why they are behaving in certain ways.

    The consensus is that there was a lot of theory but not a lot of practical strategies.
