“This book can be described as the definitive A-Z of teaching boys. Everything, from what makes boys tick to helping them fulfill their potential, is covered in this book. There is a good blend between cognitive theories and psychology, and I found it difficult to put the book down because it answers so many of the questions raised, on a daily basis, in boys’ schools by staff and parents. It was refreshing to finally find a book that not only explains the uniqueness of boys but provides the solutions that helps them succeed academically.
“Dr. James states that 'It is important to approach teaching from a gendered perspective, as not all students learn the same way and teaching them as if they did will not change that fact.' This is the perspective we ask our teachers to take at Allen Middle School in Greensboro, NC. We have several blended classes consisting of heterogeneous, all girls and all boys. Dr. James helped our teachers realize the uniqueness of each student. The strategies and concepts she shared during staff development helped us launch blended classes to best meet the needs of our students.
“Teaching the Male Brain, Second Edition by Dr. Abigail James is a holistic tool for educators, parents, and/or individuals committed to effectively understand, teach, support, and guide the development of young men in their care. Dr. James provides a clear lens into the intricate details of the thoughts and actions of the boys in our lives.”
