Synopsis

The 10th Anniversary Edition of the Groundbreaking Classic For Understanding Gender Differences in the Classroom

With this edition, author Michael Gurian and educator Kathy Stevens have revised and updated Gurian’s highly acclaimed book Boys and Girls Learn Differently! That classic work clearly demonstrated how the distinction in hard wiring and socialized gender differences affects how boys and girls learn. In this new edition, Gurian and Stevens present a proven method for educating our children based on both the latest research in brain science and leading-edge practical strategies.

The innovations presented in this book were applied in the classroom and proven successful, with significant improvements in test scores, student behavior, and teacher effectiveness, during a two-year study Gurian and his colleagues conducted in six Missouri school districts. This revised edition also includes new information on a wealth of topics including how to design successful classrooms for both boys and girls in elementary, secondary, middle, and high school.
