Chalk Talk: Closing the Gender Gap in Achievement
Study after study shows that boys lag behind their female counterparts on many measures of academic success. This is the result of many factors, but one that is most concerning is that some schools have a negative attitude about how boys learn. The belief that boys are too rambunctious, have terrible handwriting, or are unorganized fosters the development of a negative attitude about education among some male students. To reverse this trend, educational experts maintain that education needs to take a more boy-friendly approach. Especially for elementary learners, recess is an important outlet to get rid of excess energy and improve concentration in the classroom. It is also recommended that teachers allow boys to read boy-friendly material, such as adventure stories or sports stories. Doing so will keep boys more engaged in the learning process and will facilitate improved academic success.
