Boys are the barometer. They will challenge rules and processes until the limits are determined and all are aware of them. Boys seem to take up more teacher time than girls, more discipline time, be in detention rooms, remedial classes, corridors, the principal’s office and special classes more often. Boys, boys, boys . . .
Much has been written about boys in schools. This is particularly due to a growing awareness of a long-term decline in boys’ performance in schools. Yet few know how to effectively address these issues and amidst the controversy is much confusion.
What can we do? Plenty, according to Greg Griffiths and it all starts in the classroom.
This book includes steps that classroom teachers can make in most school environments about classroom management in their own classrooms that might assist the learning of both boys and girls. The book includes a series of techniques and procedures that can make classroom life easier. Some are relevant to infant and primary classrooms, while others are more pertinent to the secondary classroom and all can be adapted with little effort or time.
With easy-to-use planning and assessment forms to help teachers improve their classroom environment, Managing Boys’ Behaviour in Your Classroom offers a practical approach, a return to the basics of classroom management and a reassessment of positive classroom techniques. This book is all about classroom management and effective learning – especially for boys.
