What's a Boy? The Need for a "Boy-Oriented" Program.
Gehringer, Jean; Barnes, Nancy Marie
This is one in a series of four papers describing a boy-oriented program for elementary school children. The program is based on the premise that boys have more reading problems, are referred more often for behavioral problems, and have more unexcused absences than girls and that creating a curriculum designed to meet their special academic and affective needs will close the gap. The paper describes the need for a boy-oriented program, presents a description of a boy learner, discusses important implications of the educational programs of boys and girls, and describes how a boy-oriented program can be implemented.
