Supporting Boys' Learning: Strategies for Teacher Practice, Pre-K--Grade 3. Early Childhood Education Series
Sprung, Barbara; Froschl, Merle; Gropper, Nancy
Teachers College Press
"Supporting Boys' Learning" will help teachers develop knowledge and strategies for teaching boys in ways that build on their strengths, respect their individual development levels, and adhere to principles of child development. There is a growing body of research that has raised concerns about boys' vulnerability in terms of social-emotional development, referral to special education, and academic success in school, with African-American and Latino boys most at risk. Responding to these concerns, this user-friendly guide provides strategies to improve teaching practice. The text is based on the work of a group of teacher educators and includes examples from the field, reflections on practice, classroom strategies, and key resources. The strategies and recommendations for practice documented here have all been field tested by pre-service teachers under the supervision of the contributors to this book. Appended are: (1) Selected Reference Books on Children's Literature; (2) Engaging Books for Boys; and (3) Books About Emotions.
