Product description

The differences between boys and girls, both in development and in attitudes to learning, are well documented. A formalised early curriculum tends to emphasise these differences. The ability of most girls to meet learning goals at an earlier age may result in a tendency to teach boys to learn like girls, instead of recognising their unique gifts and abilities. If we are to help boys become competent learners from an early age, we must resist the temptation to feel sorry for them, and instead work out how to celebrate their strengths. This exciting book helps to dispel myths about ‘underachievement’, challenging stereotypical views of gender, and helping teachers to cater to the unique strengths and abilities of young boys.

“This book cleverly addresses the issues surrounding the development and learning of young boys. It features a series of stories (which are an absolute joy to read)... this special book empowers practitioners getting into the mindset of different boys in order to better understand how we can meet their needs in our continuous provision for them.” Early Years Educator
