Summary Challenging the widely held cultural impression that boys are stubbornly resistant to schooling, this book features more than 100 detailed examples of classroom activities--along with real-world teaching techniques--that have proven effective with male students. Based on a wide-ranging, worldwide study of more than 1,500 boys and 1,000 teachers, Reichert and Hawley reveal what boys need in order to want to succeed in school and offer tips for forging successful relationships with boys.--From publisher description.
