“Girls are outperforming boys in all the main attainment indicators at key stage 4.”
‘The Boy Problem’: Raising boys’ achievement – what can schools do? provides a three hour workshop suitable for primary and secondary school teachers, teaching assistants and other professionals interested in improving boys educational attainment, exploring:
· ‘The Boy Problem’ – boys participation in education
· Male learning styles?
· Misreading males? The importance of addressing literacy concerns
· The male-inclusive classroom
· A whole-school strategy?
· Practical solutions (including the hard-to-reach)
This is an evidence-based, experiential workshop; participants will be informed of useful methods to engage and maintain boys interest in education and will be encouraged to consider a whole-school strategy to improve boys achievement.
Please note that this workshop requires a three hour delivery time.
For further information on workshop content and costs, please contact Mengage. We look forward to hearing from you.
An engaging and thought provoking session that was a great way to start the new academic year.
