Synopsis

This book is an essential resource for educators who are teaching or leading schools with single-gender classes, whether they're in public, private, or Catholic schools. It is a "soup-to-nuts" guide, covering everything from curriculum planning and classroom design to school policies and parent-teacher communication. Whether contemplating this new educational trend, or already working within one of the 12,000 single-gender schools, this practical guide shows educators how they can make the most of a unique educational opportunity.

Positioned at the forefront of brain-based learning, Michael Gurian's work translates and distills the latest scientific research into key points which can be immediately integrated into an educator's existing practice. The research underlines the importance of single-sex learning, and supports the creation and implementation of new strategies for accommodating the brain differences of boys and girls - at both the school and classroom level.
