As has been true in all of the books produced by Michael Gurian and the Gurian Institute trainers and associates the balance between theory and practicality, accessibility and applicability is well-maintained in the companion books: STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING BOYS AND GIRLS: ELEMENTARY LEVEL and STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING BOYS AND GIRLS: SECONDARY LEVEL.
Readers will find the inputs and sharing of practitioners, combined with information from researchers and educational presenters, to be immediately available for consideration in their schools.
The books provide examples, exhortations and other information that can easily be utilized in professional enrichment events, at the building or district level, as well as challenging the creativity of individual teachers seeking more effective ways of instruction for their classrooms. Readers will appreciate the age/grade specific suggestions that allow rapid assimilation to local settings.
