What Does a "Boy-Oriented" Teacher Look Like?
Barnes, Nancy Marie; Gehringer, Jean
This paper, one in a series of four describing a boy-oriented program for elementary school children, addresses the problem of staffing an elementary school with teachers who will be able to effectively teach boys as well as girls. It suggests that empathy toward both boys and girls, personal warmth and security in the classroom, a high degree of willingness to spend extra time with students in boy-oriented activities, a high degree of dedication to meet individual student academic and affective needs, and resourcefulness in using a variety of teaching techniques to promote a challenging and effective boy-oriented curriculum for both boys and girls are the major criteria for such a staff.
