I received this book at my old school and found it to be a great resource for me, as a teacher AND a parent. Having a son after having two high-achieving daughters, had taught me an incredible amount about the differences between boys and girls. It has affected the way I teach and relate to my students, as well as what my management style looks like. While sometimes, walking into my room it may not look orderly (it is not necessarily uncommon to see students standing – sometimes even dancing), I promise you everyone really is learning. This book, by Peg Tyre really hits home the trouble boys are having in school, why, and some ideas to start making changes. I recommend this book to my parents of boys who are having a hard time understanding why they won’t sit still in class. An easy read (I read it over Christmas break), it is well worth the read and the considerations for parents and teachers as their boys move through their school years.
