Boys and girls learn differently : a guide for teachers and parents

Gurian, Michael.

San Francisco : Jossey-Bass, c2001.

xvi, 345 p. ; 24 cm.

"Boys and Girls Learn Differently! offers valuable and much-needed tools to provide boys and girls with true equal educational opportunities. The new techniques Michael Gurian presents here will transform our classrooms and the way parents teach their children in very positive ways." --John Gray, author, Children Are from Heaven and Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"From the beginning of time, parents and sensitive teachers have observed differences in the behavior, learning styles, and focused interests of girls and boys. Defying the political correctness that is today's common wisdom, Gurian and the contributing authors draw on emerging neuroscientific data to justify these perceptions. While never allowing us to lose sight of the reality of individual differences, they suggest creative ways to modify the learning environment to encourage a broader spectrum of achievement in both gender groups." --Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University, and one of the original planners of the national Head Start program

"Overflowing with challenging ideas and practical advice, Gurian's research offers parents and teachers a true gift-the knowledge and support needed to create dynamic learning environments for both boys and girls." --Ann F. Caron, author of Mothers to Daughters and Strong Mothers, Strong Sons

"The insights and innovations in Boys and Girls Learn Differently! have been applied in our classrooms with phenomenal success, leading to better academic performance and better behavior. I highly recommend this book to all parents, teachers, and school administrators." --Dan Colgan, superintendent of schools, St. Joseph, Missouri
